McAfee, Siemens to bring better security to industrial customers 

As McAfee points out, industrial customers often do not have access to the resources they need to combat cyber threats, nor to “the global threat intelligence that would allow proactive defensive measures.”

As a result, they sometimes struggle to keep up with government regulations, industry standards, best practices, and other risk-related information they might need to make business decisions.

McAfee will be bringing its next-generation firewall, SIEM, endpoint security, and global threat intelligence solutions to the table. It will also be offering customers its professional services. Combined with Siemens’ service offerings, the boosted security will ensure that customers have greater visibility and control at the factory level.

“Siemens provides a deep experience in automation across numerous industries,” said Michael Fey, worldwide CTO, McAfee. “By combining forces, McAfee, Intel and Siemens will drive the adoption of connected, managed and secured solutions at the plant level in order to help industrial customers to manage their security while bringing the uptime and reliability of the plant operations to a higher level. This collaboration should allow us to address the unique requirements of Industrial Control System customers for the operations technology market thus providing a complete security view across the entire company.”

Going forward, the companies will continue to work together on the development of security solutions according to industrial protocols.
