Sekuro Announces New Partnership With Dragos To Strengthen OT Capabilities

Sydney, Australia – April 30, 2024: Sekuro has today announced its new partnership with Dragos, the global leader in cybersecurity for operational technology (OT) environments. The partnership comes as Sekuro looks to strengthen its OT service capabilities by curating its offerings in partnership with the world’s best vendors.

Sekuro’s partnership with Dragos will enable new and existing customers to get the most out of the Dragos Platform by leveraging Sekuro’s expertise and support. Sekuro is now a value-added reseller, leveraging Dragos technology to provide comprehensive asset visibility, vulnerability management, and the industry’s most effective threat detection in OT environments. In addition, as a managed service provider for Dragos, Sekuro can now manage a converged dashboard for OT and IT infrastructure, meaning all alerts are now in one place.

Society’s growing reliance on operational technology systems within our critical infrastructure has left the backbone of our society vulnerable. Research from Dragos found ransomware attacks against industrial organisations increased by 50 per cent in 2023.

Unlike attacks on IT infrastructure, attacks against OT systems can impact our physical environment through service disruptions, economic damage, threats to public safety, and even lives. The Colonial Pipeline attack in 2021 marked a re-focus on the impact critical infrastructure attacks could have on the public. More recently, we saw DP Worldwide, Australia’s largest port operator, forced to shut down its operations for days due to a cyberattack.

Sekuro already offers a number of services tailored to meet the unique challenges faced by anyone maintaining OT and critical infrastructure, which will now be bolstered by the Dragos partnership. Sekuro’s Offensive Security team offers vulnerability assessments of an organisation’s current infrastructure, whilst its Governance, Risk, and Compliance Team helps organisations assess risk and monitor compliance with pivotal regulations, including the 2018 SOCI Act. In addition, Sekuro’s Black Team can provide physical penetration testing of OT assets.

Noel Allnutt, CEO of Sekuro commented: “The potential impact of attacks on OT can be downright terrifying yet, anecdotally, we’ve observed low OT security maturity in Australia. As IT and OT converge, our customers are coming to us for guidance on how to secure critical infrastructure. While there are unique challenges and requirements for OT and critical infrastructure environments, our capabilities are now strengthened by Dragos and will enhance operational continuity and safety.

“As an end-to-end cyber security and digital transformation consultancy, our holistic approach has enabled us to build the leading business platform for OT convergence. Sekuro is partnering with Dragos because of its unrivalled reputation as the leading OT security technology provider with unparalleled expertise and experience on the frontline of OT security incidents. The Dragos Platform provides superior visibility and insights, and Dragos is the only vendor providing services to upskill customers and partners.”

Hayley Turner, Area Vice President, APAC of Dragos said, “The partnership between Dragos and Sekuro is well aligned to our mission to Safeguard Civilisation. Together, Sekuro and Dragos bring world-class technology and experience in the OT domain alongside Sekuro’s deep expertise in the Enterprise IT landscape for a holistic approach to organisational cyber security. We share Sekuro’s dedication to reducing cyber risk and building business resiliency for industrial organisations.”
