Wurldtech, a GE company and leader in cyber security for operational technology (OT) and critical infrastructure, today announced a new GE Digital security offering: industrial managed security services provider (iMSS). These services are designed to help customers strengthen their security posture by providing real-time visibility, threat detection and remediation within their OT network environment.

Wurldtech’s iMSS utilizes its innovative network security detection and prevention technology, OpShield, which is designed to protect critical infrastructure control systems and assets and enable security management and monitoring for control systems, critical assets and other embedded/connected devices.

Leveraging GE’s existing IT security operations centers and its business specific remote maintenance and diagnostics services, Wurldtech’s iMSS will provide a uniquely qualified OT offering for:

• Security monitoring and management;
• Incident response;
• Threat intelligence.

With the emergence of the Industrial Internet, OT environments are increasingly interconnected to a wide array of networks, including IT and business networks, broader communication platforms, direct-to-internet transmission frameworks and cloud services.

“The connectivity of these networks introduces more risk to the OT environment, which can require 24-7 monitoring for threats,” said Paul Rogers, President & CEO of Wurldtech and General Manager of GE Industrial Cyber Security. “These threats cannot adequately be addressed by the traditional IT security offerings on the market. Wurldtech’s Industrial iMSS builds on GE’s unique experience leading the convergence of IT and OT. The iMSS will help companies minimize risk, reduce costs and protect their overall OT investment.”

According to Gartner, by year-end 2017, more than 80 percent of enterprises with significant OT assets will complete restructuring their security governance and management organizations to encompass IT, OT and physical security requirements.

Wurldtech’s iMSS is being rolled out across GE’s Brilliant factories in the oil & gas, power, transportation and aviation sectors in the U.S. and Europe. This phase further solidifies GE’s commitment to using and developing solutions that improve the safety of assets that are reliable and improve production.

“The Wurldtech iMSS extends what the GE Security Operation Center currently does for the IT side of businesses to OT environments,” said Richard Puckett, Senior Director of Cyber Intelligence and Security Operations, for GE Digital. “The intelligence we’re able to provide is based on the collective expertise of the Wurldtech and GE teams in the cybersecurity and industrial operating environments.

Nate Kube, chief technology officer and founder at Wurldtech, said the model is a continuation of building upon an advanced suite of technology and services and bringing to customers another level of confidence in a connected world.

“Our iMSS incorporate GE’s breadth and depth of expertise across multiple sectors, bringing companies the confidence they need to connect their assets” Kube added.

Wurldtech is one of the exhibitors this week at the “Connected Security” expo at ISC West in Las Vegas, one of the largest industry security shows in North America. Kube, who is a presenter at the conference, will also discuss topics such as Internet of Things (IoT) and the capabilities of the new industrial managed security services model.
