Radiflow launches OT MSSP partner programme

13 Jun 2019

Radiflow, a provider of industrial cybersecurity solutions for industrial automation networks, has launched a partner programme for MSSPs to offer OT cybersecurity services.

The new programme provides the framework for MSSPs to offer new cybersecurity services dedicated to ICS/SCADA networks to their industrial enterprise and critical infrastructure customers. 

The offer is aimed at MSSPs that already provide IT cybersecurity services and are looking to enter the OT space as well as industrial engineering companies that are interested in expanding their service offerings to include cybersecurity services.

Radiflow's programme for OT MSSPs is based on the company's iSID Industrial Threat Detection System running in the Cloud environment of an MSSP partner, which can be utilised by an MSSP as the starting point for an ongoing network monitoring service that involves building a network topology map of all devices, connections, ports and data traffic flows on an OT network and handling alerts to any changes to this baseline understanding. 

As part of an ongoing networking monitoring service, an MSSP can also use iSID to detect any breech attempts and apply security upgrades to any newly detected devices.

MSSPs can enhance their OT cybersecurity service portfolio by leveraging the new automated vulnerability mapping and assessment processes included in the recently released version of iSID. 

Based on an advanced risk assessment engine and attack vector simulation model, iSID dynamically calculates an exploitability score for each device on an OT network and identifies the most critical attack vectors. 

MSSPs can utilise these dynamic mapping and scoring capabilities for a service that involves remediating vulnerabilities that are prioritized based on the specific context of a customer's OT network and the impact on its business operations.

For customers that prefer to maintain cybersecurity operations on-premise, Radiflow provides the option of granting the MSSP secure access for network monitoring with an iSID system that is installed at the customer's facility.

Radiflow works closely with each OT MSSP partner to implement the processes that are required to roll out a full range of OT cybersecurity services. 

These services can include monitoring the network and networked assets, providing status reports, deactivating active and upcoming threats, provisioning software updates and patches, optimizing end-user cybersecurity expenditures and preparing the end user for a cyber attack.

As part of its business offering to MSSPs, Radiflow provides silver, gold and premium packages, including a free trial period for MSSPs to provide a Proof-of-Value rollout to end customers.
