While Industroyer targets multiple IEC protocols, Industroyer2 is a standalone executable which exclusively targets IEC-104. Based on the analysis, it’s likely that the threat actor was in the network days before the attack and had a fairly complete understanding of security measures in the target environment, and that Industroyer2 was designed to be executed in a privileged environment with direct access to the target device.
In light of the attempted attack on Ukraine’s power grid with Industroyer2 malware, the safety and security of Nozomi Networks customers is our top priority. Our latest Threat Intelligence package provides Industroyer2 Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) that will detect and alert customers of any known activity linked to the malware.
We are excited to announce that our company has received $15 million in Series B financing, led by new investor Invenergy Future Fund.
This investment recognizes Nozomi Networks extraordinary accomplishments, demonstrates confidence in our future, and reflects the growing ICS cyber security market.
Let’s take a closer look at the reasons behind today’s announcement, and our company’s outlook as we enter 2018.
After a year that began with the fall-out from another Ukraine electric grid attack, saw the discovery of the first toolset since Stuxnet to target physical systems (CrashOverride/ Industroyer) and included significant harm from ransomware attacks (WannaCry, Petya/NotPetya), what’s in store for 2018?
Our team looked ahead 12 months and thought about how ICS cyber security will be different at the end of that period. From there we came up with 5 predictions you won’t want to miss.
Malware attacks like WannaCry, Dragonfly 2 and Industroyer have brought industrial cyber threats to the attention of corporate boards and governments around the world. As a result, CISOs and those responsible for critical infrastructure are demanding real, enterprise-grade OT security solutions. Many are reaching out to trusted partners in IT security, looking for help in securing their industrial control networks.
This is the driver behind our new partnership with FireEye. FireEye’s customers include more than 40% of the Forbes Global 2000 and they depend on FireEye to eliminate the complexity and burden of cyber security for them.
To help extend its ICS cyber security offerings, FireEye recently thoroughly analyzed the market for ICS network security monitoring solutions. We’re happy to announce today that our solution has been selected by FireEye to provide cyber security visibility and threat detection for industrial control systems.
