Press Release: July 15, 2020
As part of OTORIO's ongoing commitment to the industrial sector worldwide, the company will empower industrial organizations’ security teams with an initial assessment of their security posture, including leaked passwords, data on internet-facing services provided by the company, and more.
OTORIO, the provider of next-generation OT digital and cybersecurity risk management solutions, announced today a new initiative designed to raise awareness for better risk management amongst industrial companies and to help navigate through the rough, uncharted waters of the COVID-19 crisis.
Cyber-criminals are known for taking advantage of large-scale disasters that influence online behavior trends. Currently, threat actors are stepping up their attacks on the computer networks and systems of individuals, businesses, and global organizations and are exploiting the global shift of focus on the health crisis. Although these same risks existed in the pre-COVID-19 world, they are amplified dramatically as remote connection solutions for OT will be used much more significantly to overcome lockdown, supply chain difficulties and social distancing, enabling access through various endpoints and building even more bridges between unsegmented IT and OT networks.
Designed to help organizations find out if they are at risk, OTORIO will provide security teams with an initial non-intrusive assessment of the organization’s security posture. This will include a snapshot of leaked passwords, internet-facing services provided by the company, IP addresses connected to the company prioritized by the ease of discovery, ease of exploitation and more. The information gathered will be presented to the companies in a special report, aimed at helping them craft better security policies.
OTORIO was founded by Brig. Gen. (res.) Daniel Bren, who founded the Israeli Military’s first cyber defense division, and also served as its first commander - and Yair Attar, formerly the IDF’s chief threat hunter. OTORIO’s comprehensive offering addresses the different stages and challenges an industrial company faces when embarking on digital transformation.
Daniel Bren, OTORIO'S co-founder and CEO commented: "This unforeseen reality imposes new challenges for cybersecurity teams who are now dealing with distributed users who are utilizing private and public communication infrastructures for their daily work, instead of the central, controlled ones of their businesses".
Yoav Flint Rosenfeld, Head of Professional Services at OTORIO said: “Ever since the COVID-19 outbreak, security teams often find themselves short-staffed while having to cope with escalating workloads. By taking advantage of our limited-time offer, they can proactively identify risks and focus their resources on mitigating them before hackers can exploit them”.
OTORIO’s unique technology and service offerings for digital and cyber risk management, enable industrial organizations to achieve reliable, safe, and efficient digital production. OTORIO’s professional cybersecurity experts bring years of experience in penetration testing, red team operations, threat intelligence, incident response, and more.
Risk-Management by Design
Digital and cyber breaches are typically caused by a lack of awareness, low-level monitoring, and unsafe design. They can be prevented by conducting periodic security assessments and penetration tests, along with threat intelligence collection and analysis.
