MISSISSAUGA, ON – September 16, 2021 – iS5 Communications Inc. (“iS5Com”) today announced a new technology integration with Forescout Technologies, Inc., the leader in Enterprise of Things security, to help organizations detect cyber and operational technology (OT) threats while maintaining resiliency of their OT environments without performance impact or network upgrades.
iS5Com’s RAPTOR® iMX350 & iMX950 Models integrate with Forescout eyeInspect, which provides in-depth device visibility for OT networks and enables effective, real-time management of a full range of operational and cyber risks. The RAPTOR is an intelligent cybersecure hardware running the iBiome® OS, an all-encompassing operating system that supports L2/L3 switching and routing on a single platform. The joint solution enables iS5Com customers to deploy OT device visibility and network monitoring capabilities much faster and without requiring additional hardware.
The combination of Forescout eyeInspect with iS5Com’s RAPTOR platform will provide real-time monitoring of IP and serial devices, including HMIs, SCADA, PLCs, controllers, sensors, meters, and I/O. The solution helps identify ICS/OT-specific threats and enable threat containment and remediation by eliminating blind spots from newly connected and rogue devices.
“IT and OT networks are increasingly becoming interconnected, resulting in increased risks at the largest organizations around the world,” said iS5Com’s Founder, President & CEO, Clive Dias. “iS5Com’s integration with Forescout’s market leading technology is the right step forward so we can help our customers to quickly detect and contain OT threats. We are excited to offer this solution to our customers on RAPTOR.”
