FireEye Launches New OT Threat Intelligence Service


FireEye this week unveiled a new threat intelligence service focusing on operational technology (OT) and other systems that manage physical processes.

The company says its Cyber Physical Threat Intelligence service provides organizations context, data and actionable analysis on threats targeting OT, ICS and IoT systems.

Subscribers will receive information on malware, TTPs, threat activity, threat actors, vulnerabilities, and strategic insights, enabling them to anticipate and prevent attacks.

The information is based on the findings of FireEye and Mandiant experts, as well as the company’s technology and worldwide network of sensors.

“For organizations tasked with maintaining the security and continuity of these systems, Cyber Physical Intelligence provides early warning on critical vulnerabilities, as well as the threat campaigns and adversaries targeting them,” FireEye says. “With Cyber Physical Intelligence, security teams can stay ahead of attackers and make better-informed decisions about the security posture of their cyber physical systems.”

FireEye provides five other threat intelligence subscriptions and one that encompases all of them. They cover operational, cyber espionage, strategic, vulnerability, and cybercrime intelligence.

FireEye’s experts have been called in to conduct on-site investigations by at least two victims of the notorious malware known as Triton, Trisis and HatMan, whose existence came to light in 2017 after it caused disruptions at an oil and gas plant in Saudi Arabia.
