Cyber-defense for critical infrastructure including factories, plants, utilities & hospitals

TOKYO, Sept. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NTT Security Corporation (Head Office: Chiyoda-Ku, Tokyo; CEO: Jun Sawada), the specialized security company of NTT Group, has launched "IT/OT Integrated Security Services". The new services will be taken to market globally through the NTT Group companies, Dimension Data, NTT Communications and NTT DATA, forming part of its suite of integrated services to enable successful digital transformation initiatives for its clients.

Companies are increasingly working towards IT/OT (Operational Technology) alignment.

As a result, IT/OT convergence is exposing everything, including critical infrastructure (such as electricity, gas, water) and industrial control systems (such as factories, transportation, and logistics), to traditional and OT threats. Meanwhile, cyberattacks and cybersecurity incidents on these infrastructures are also increasing, which spans ransomware infections like WannaCry(1) to cyberweapon strikes like Stuxnet(2) and CrashOverride(3).

Jun Sawada, CEO at NTT Security says: "In the era of IoT, cybersecurity incidents can cause huge impact and damage on enterprise business operations and society. Therefore, in addition to conventional cybersecurity measures to protect information assets, OT Security measures to protect critical assets and ensure business continuity must also be considered as part of a continuous approach to cybersecurity and risk management."

NTT Security provides "IT/OT Integrated Security Services" based on its strength in Global Threat Intelligence and Cyber Threat Advanced Analytics accumulated through global operations.

"IT/OT Integrated Security Services" are delivered via a combination of both Consulting Services (CS) and Managed Security Services (MSS). Consulting Services (CS) visualize components and potential risks of an industrial control system, and provides effective and efficient security measures.
