Leipzig, Germany / Stamford, USA, August 29, 2017 - Renowned US-based market research and analyst for IT industry, Gartner Inc., has published its new »Market Guide for Operational Technology Security « on 17 August, 2017. In the annual guide, Gartner can help you manage the risk of investing in an emerging market with insight into its direction and potential.

Rhebo listed as a representative vendor

According to the report, one of core categories of OT security is anomaly detection and response, incident reporting. The report recommends security and risk managers should identify key cyberassets and systems by prioritizing OT security requirements based upon integrated risk to OT and IT systems. This prioritization is the basis for the preparation of risk maps which German IT security expert Dr. Sandro Gaycken has been recommending for a long time. Gartner has listed a total of 30 companies offering OT security services and products in their list of representative manufacturers. Rhebo is the only native German vendor listed in the report. It is one of the world's top six companies providing data traffic analysis based on Deep Packet Inspection (DPI). DPI is the basis for a detailed forensic analysis of incidents and the concrete prioritization of threats in real-time.

Rhebo anomaly detection secures German power

The need for an intelligent real-time anomaly detection is recognized within German industry. This month, Rhebo deployed version 1.6 of its Industrial Protector to support a large German power network operator customer in the monitoring and reporting of network incidents. The Rhebo Industrial Protector solution ensures plant availability and cybersecurity makes it easier for the energy supplier to integrate the security systems of the OT telecontrol network into the enterprise IT systems. With the further help of the risk scoring capabilities, the Rhebo deployment drives incident prioritization involving high-risk components and communication that allows risk-related allocation of anomaly messages.

»Companies must ensure transparency, provide a detailed risk map for their cyber assets, and get any suspicious incidents reported«, says Klaus Mochalski, CEO of Rhebo. »This will also require a clean integration beyond the boundaries of the IT and OT networks, which have been separate so far. Only in this way can companies achieve a holistic cybersecurity strategy«.
