Tenable has announced that it has acquired Indegy, one of the leaders in industrial cybersecurity which provides visibility, security and control across operational technology (OT) environments. “For every company in every industry, OT is now part of the modern attack surface. CISOs are being asked to secure OT systems alongside IT, but lack the necessary visibility and technology to manage and measure OT cyber risk in the same way as IT risk,” said Amit Yoran, chairman and CEO, Tenable.
“The combination of Tenable and Indegy brings together two pioneers of IT vulnerability management and industrial cybersecurity to deliver the industry’s first unified, risk-based view of IT and OT security. This is a game changer that will help transform how security and the C-suite make strategic decisions around OT risk. This acquisition is a critical milestone in delivering on our Cyber Exposure strategy to help organizations understand and reduce cyber risk across the entire modern attack surface. Indegy extends our depth of OT expertise and intelligence, and our breadth of OT-specific capabilities from vulnerability management to asset inventory, configuration management and threat detection. We look forward to working with the Indegy team to help the industry usher in the next wave of IT/OT convergence,” added Yoran.
“When we started Indegy we set out on a mission to protect industrial networks through a mix of cybersecurity expertise and hands-on OT experience, developing products which solve the hardest industrial cybersecurity challenges. We are excited to accelerate this mission by joining Tenable, a visionary IT cybersecurity leader with a trusted brand and proven track record of product innovation. We look forward to working with the Tenable team and bringing OT cyber capabilities to its broad customer base,” said Barak Perelman, co-founder and CEO, Indegy.
