The partnership offers a one-stop shop for cybersecurity assessments
Cyber risk management platform SecurityGate.io and IT service provider ilionx enter into a partnership to improve the security of operational technology (OT) in the Netherlands. With the SaaS platform of the American SecurityGate.io, industrial companies have specialized and accessible tooling at their disposal to quickly carry out risk assessments. Thanks to the out-of-the-box frameworks SecurityGate.io has developed for critical infrastructures, the solution can be set up within 24 hours. With the partnership, ilionx supports organizations in the Netherlands with a full risk assessment and associated consultancy, regardless of the market segment. The collaboration is an extension of the cybersecurity services that ilionx offers.
Tooling for clear and fast risk assessments
Given the growing demand for strong cybersecurity tooling in the field of operational technology, the collaboration comes in at the right moment. Companies in the manufacturing industry, but also regional water authorities, hospitals, oil and gas companies and energy companies are at an increasing risk of becoming a victim of cybercrime. Research firm Gartner even predicts that by 2025 OT systems will be compromised with the aim of harming or killing people. With the SaaS platform, teams gain more insight into their OT environment, resulting in better decision-making. Regardless of a company’s auditing experience, the tool can create a clear status overview of the OT landscape. Integration with other cybersecurity solutions is easily achieved within the platform.
Trish McGill, Managing Consultant Cyber Security IT/OT at ilionx: “SecurityGate.io is known for its innovation and acceleration power. For example, the organization has designed guidelines for the industrial security demands of tomorrow, in which robotics and a passwordless environment play a central role. Thanks to this expertise, ilionx is taking a big step forward in the security of OT environments. Our customers, Dutch industrial companies, in turn have the best risk assessment solution for OT and IT with this platform.”
Founded by former risk managers, SecurityGate.io is the fastest and easiest way for organizations to understand where their OT/ICS risks are and what to do about them. The SecurityGate.io platform has been adopted by over 60% of the top US energy producers such as Chevron, Modec, Westlake Chemical, and was recently named in Gartner’s Market Guide for Operational Technology for the second year in a row.
With SecurityGate.io’s critical infrastructure expertise, visual dashboard, and actionable insights, OT and IT security teams are empowered to collaborate and mature cyber-programs faster and easier than traditional manual methods.
