Verve is a 25-year old IT/OT reliability and security company. The company’s flagship product, the Verve Security Center (VSC), is a comprehensive IT/OT security management platform. It brings together all of the required elements of NIST CSF (as well as other standards such as CSC20, IEC62443, etc.) into a single pane of glass. It includes automated asset inventory, patch management, change management, vulnerability assessment, configuration compliance, application whitelisting, log management and anomaly detection, and incident response analysis.
Over 60% of the labor involved in cyber security today is in the operations and maintenance function to ensure security is maintained on current and new systems. This challenge is hard enough in the world of IT. But as cyber security begins to extend into OT systems (either traditional industrial controls like SCADA or HMIs, etc. or newer IOT deployments) the security management challenges increase dramatically. These systems have historically been unmanaged and even basic inventory is often no available.
Further, IT personnel don’t normally have the knowledge of these systems.
Verve addresses this challenge by providing a single management platform for both IT and OT systems. It deploys quickly and inexpensively using only software. Further, by deploying the only OT-proven agent-based architecture, Verve allows customers not only to detect vulnerabilities and threats but also to remediate them quickly and safely. This architecture is what allows Verve to provide the first truly comprehensive solution for integrated IT/OT cybersecurity.
Verve is proven on dozens of deployments in industries ranging from power generation and transmission to pharmaceuticals, pipelines, and discrete manufacturing.
How we are different
1. Faster deployment and lower cost: our software-based architecture means there is no need for expensive taps/span ports or additional hardware required by all the passive solutions. Instead, we use an agent / agentless approach.
2. Actionability: Verve Security Center is unique from other ICS cyber security solutions because of our integrated ability to remediate the endpoints in the network. Competitors in our space stop either at detection or with a link to certain firewalls. VSC's OT-proven agent-based solution allows for rapid remediation of vulnerabilities and threats from the same platform that is used to discover and assess those vulnerabilities offering a "closed-loop" solution.
3. Turnkey: Verve combines its platform with deep ICS/OT experienced engineers. Customers' biggest challenge is skilled OT cyber personnel. Verve does not outsource this key component but combines the power of "man and machine" to offer clients a turn-key solution.
