Verve Releases Version 6.0 End Point Management Detection and Response Platform for IIOT

By Ken Briodagh June 28, 2018

Verve Industrial Protection, industrial control system (ICS) cybersecurity company, recently announced the release of version 6.0 of its flagship product, the Verve Security Center (VSC).

The company says the latest release is a reflection of a growing client demand to:

  • Gain visibility into 100 percent of all OT end points, without the need for an extensive set of network taps/span ports
  • Provide integrated End point Detection and Response to not only detect threats and vulnerabilities, but also respond to remediate those threats from an integrated tool.
  • Demonstrate full compliance with key standards such as NIST & IEC 62443 in a single pane of glass, rather than a series of siloed solutions.

Version 6.0 reportedly advances Verve's end point detection & inventory capabilities by extending its asset reach to all brands of OEM PLCs, SCADA communications equipment such as microwaves, MUXs, and others as well as many types of smart manufacturing equipment like CNCs and Robots. In addition, it expands our clients' capabilities to respond to vulnerabilities and threats. Building on Verve's industry-leading ICS patching functionality, Version 6.0 expands that response capability to deploying secure configurations, network device management, and rapid deployment of protective solutions such as CarbonBlack's whitelisting capabilities. Instead of just detecting alerts, Verve can deploy a range of response solutions to actually address the threat or vulnerability.

"We are releasing 6.0 which includes a fully integrated EDR capability for all assets in the OT environment - embedded, networking and IT OS type assets," said John Livingston, CEO of Verve Industrial Protection. "Not only does this provide rapid and efficient asset detection & inventory, but also allows us to generate much better threat and vulnerability insights as our rich database of end point and network information grows."
