Sygnia to Collaborate with NVIDIA on Operational Tech Security for the Energy and Industrial Sectors

Israeli cyber readiness company Sygnia announced a collaboration with NVIDIA in the energy and industrial sectors with AI-powered edge solutions. The initiative combines Sygnia’s Pathfinder sensors and Velocity XDR platform with NVIDIA’s cybersecurity AI framework to improve data collection and threat detection and response. This hardware and software solution aims to secure industrial and critical infrastructure with AI-powered security at the edge.

According to Sygnia, the energy and industrial sectors have long relied upon “air gapping” to secure operational technology (OT) environments, separating the OT and corporate IT networks to limit opportunities for attackers. While still important for cyber-securing OT environments, such strict network separation also hampers traditional data collection and limits organizations’ abilities to detect and respond to threats in OT environments. 

Furthermore, with the advent of digital transformation and an increased reliance on Industrial Internet of Things (I-IoT) devices, the air gap is rarely complete anymore, creating opportunities for threat actors to infiltrate OT environments. The lack of an effective approach to OT security using traditional techniques necessitates a game-changing approach, specifically the use of hardware-accelerated solutions that enable data collection and analysis at the edge, and out-of-band communication for proper monitoring and visibility, as well as for supporting preventive capabilities that are already common in IT environments.

The companies’ collaboration centers on developing advanced artificial intelligence, data collection, and processing capabilities to detect and respond to cyber incidents in industrial control system networks at the edge. 

“As cyber threats in industrial and critical infrastructure environments grow in number and impact, this new paradigm will allow defenders a significant advantage over traditional methods, empowering them to proactively anticipate and swiftly respond to emerging risks,” said Ram Elboim, CEO of Sygnia. “By harnessing NVIDIA technologies, Sygnia is poised to help redefine cybersecurity in these vital sectors, safeguarding against evolving threats and ensuring the resilience of our critical systems and infrastructure.”

“It is imperative that robust cybersecurity measures safeguard the world’s critical energy infrastructure,” said Marc Spieler, Senior Managing Director for Global Energy at NVIDIA. “Combining NVIDIA’s accelerated computing platform with Sygnia’s advanced cybersecurity technologies will help protect the energy and industrial sectors with the power of AI.”
