1 September 2022, Dubai, UAE — Cyway, a leading Cybersecurity solutions provider specializing in identity centric and cloud security solutions, has announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with SIGA OT Solutions, the innovative thought leader and developer of Level 0 monitoring solutions for industrial process anomaly detection, to expand its footprint in the Middle East.
With many satisfied clients and users in the USA, MEA, Europe and APAC, SIGA provides unique out-of-band cybersecurity for OT/ICS assets. From industrial critical infrastructure to cyber security, SIGA’s clients are well and truly covered.
Through their Incipient Failure Detection solution; SigaPlatform, SIGA enable industrial, commercial, and critical infrastructure operators to dramatically improve the reliability, safety, and cyber security of their assets, with minimal financial or human resources and without disrupting existing Industrial Control Systems.
Mahmoud Rabi, Director of Sales at Cyway commented “Critical infrastructure organizations worldwide are facing a sharp rise in the quantity and severity of cyber-attacks against their most valuable assets. Threat actors ideally target vital components in Level 0 (sensors, PLCs, actuators, processes… etc.) to achieve their ultimate goals by disrupting critical processes. In case of countries basic and vital infrastructures, the consequences could be more lethal. Think about Power Plans, Electricity and Water utilities, Oil Refineries….etc. Maintaining continuous monitoring of the electrical signals as Level 0 (AKA Zone 0) production lines is definitely crucial. With Siga SigaPlatform the gap is bridged where operators will be able to continuously, and in a real time, monitor all electrical signals to detect processes anomalies and devices outages, that may not get reported into Level 1 and above.”
This rampant increase is triggered by digital transformation of OT environments (Industry 4.0) and geopolitical conflicts. OT environments
provide integrity and continuity of the most valuable services that define our way of life: water, electricity, gas, mining, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, Building Management Systems (BMS), and data centers which is why they serve as the perfect target for attackers. SIGA’s partnership with Cyway is set to serve as the first line of defense against cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure on level 0. SIGA’s forefront technology and unique Level – 0 positioning coupled with Cyway’s in-depth Middle East market expertise will elevate OT cybersecurity to a whole new level. Cyway is deeply involved in the local market, with multiple local collaborations to strengthen OT cybersecurity capacities in the region. Both SIGA and Cyway are fully committed to making the region’s most critical processes resilient to cyber-attacks.
