Runner-up at S4 ICS Detection Challenge
In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
• Extensive Protocol Coverage
SecurityMatters has over 15 years of experience ensuring mission-critical industrial cyber resilience. Because of our experience, large customer base, and partnership with three of the largest ICS vendors (ABB, Honeywell, Yokogawa), SilentDefense supports over protocols and can also quickly integrate proprietary protocols for specific needs.
• The Most Advanced Threat Management Capability
SecurityMatters’ SilentDefense comes with a proprietary library of over 1,300 ICS-specific threat indicators, protocol checks, and ICS-specific host vulnerabilities. These checks include security threats, as well as operational and networking problems commonly found in industrial networks which can cause inefficiencies that may lead to downtime. SilentDefense identifies these threats by looking for specific behavioral indicators hidden in IT and OT protocol communications, based on industry knowledge acquired over more than 10 years. Together with the host vulnerabilities, these threat indicators provide a powerful way to identify risks and malfunctions in the network in a matter of minutes after a SilentDefense deployment. This goes well beyond the detection capabilities guaranteed by standard rule sets like Yara, which can be overcome by masking tools.
SilentDefense’s flexible architecture also supports easy installation of additional threat management packages (scripts, dashboards, analytics) developed by SecurityMatters’ experts when new threats are identified.
• Unmatched Integration Capabilities
SilentDefense seamlessly integrates with enterprise systems in a matter of minutes, which is essential for ICS security solutions today.
SilentDefense quickly integrates with:
• SIEM solutions (including CEF, LEEF, and Splunk-specific formatting
• LDAP authentication servers
• Major asset and security management solutions
With installations worldwide, SilentDefense is the most advanced and mature OT network monitoring and intelligence platform. SilentDefense passively analyzes industrial network communications, provides rich information about network assets and alerts in real-time for any threat to operational continuity. SilentDefense empowers industrial operators with unrivaled visibility, threat detection capability and control of their network. Featuring a user-friendly interface and out of the box detection engines, SilentDefense instantly delivers actionable results.
