Velta Technology: Industry Visibility to Stop Cyberattacks

Industry visibility to stop cyberattacks is central to Velta Technology. “We help industrial environments protect against security breaches by providing complete visibility into their industrial networks,” said Dino Busalachi, Chief Technology Officer.

Velta Technology recognizes that cybersecurity in an industrial space is complex. They are on a mission to provide visibility with end-to-end tools to secure global supply chains in a world where the threat level is on heightened alert.

“The doors are open and the hackers are breaking in! If you can’t see into your Industrial Control Systems (ICS) environment from the ICS application to the stack in the network, then you’re blind! commented Busalachi.

Founded in 2018, Velta Technology understands industrial assets and infrastructure and bridges the gap between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT).

By providing Digital Security as a Service (DSaaS), Velta Technology enables industry to see what is happening on their OT & IoT/IIoT networks, detect cyber threats, risks and secure their critical infrastructure. They focus on protecting four main areas of vulnerability and risk:

  • Process integrity
  • IP protection
  • Human security
  • Remote access

Busalachi pointed out that with the rapid growth of IoT and the continued expansion of 5G, the risk of cyberattacks is increasing.

A visibility study identifies the main vulnerabilities

Velta Technology provides a three-week visibility study that provides the first phase of a digital security program and promises that within 30 days, any industrial environment will be safer.

This enables industrial manufacturers to continuously detect threats, ensure process integrity, build secure infrastructures, support regulatory compliance, and maximize digital security. “This is a low-cost, low-risk incentive to protect yourself earlier.”

Busalachi said this was critical because the lifecycle management process in the industrial environment for OT can be decades old compared to IT assets. “When you add the pandemic to that, which has brought remote access into the ICS environment, which has increased the attack surface. ICS are assets that produce physical results that can harm, kill, or cause environmental hazards. It has a devastating impact if they are compromised.

DSaaS Solutions

Velta Technology brings its DSaaS solutions to industrial platforms and mimics what IT has done in ultimate visibility on the control system side.

“Each of our solutions is tested and validated in our digital security and cybersecurity laboratory. We create a database of all vulnerabilities and assign an index recognized by regulatory bodies such as NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).

Implementing the NIST framework helps the industrial environment to:

  • Detect
  • Identify
  • To respond
  • Protect
  • To recover

Field Practitioners

“We are on-the-ground practitioners – not just transactional. We are expanding the visibility footprint of the OT platform. We go from awareness to integration and optimization, which sets us apart from our competitors. »

Claroty recognized this advantage by naming Velta Technology its Partner of the Year in North America. “Claroty has a very good product and a rich and mature platform in this area. Since we formed a partnership four years ago, we haven’t looked back since,” Busalachi said.
