CHANDLER, Arizona – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –SynSabre, an industrial asset and network monitoring company, today announced the launch of a closed beta of the industry’s first palm-sized threat sensors called “Sabers.”. The agile, small form factor platform is deployable in many ways and performs well on ultra-small DIN rail-sized hardware that is used throughout the operating community.
Organizations within the energy, utilities, manufacturing, and oil and gas industries are now able to to rejoin the closed beta program, which will give them early access to Saber technology and an opportunity to help shape the future of industrial security.
“Industry organizations that have difficulty with ICS / OT visibility in their existing environment will see immense benefit from participating in the beta.” said Ron Fabela, CTO and co-founder of SynSaber. “With our full product launch slated for early 2022, we encourage organizations to sign up for the beta program now., so they have the opportunity to influence development and shape the product in a way that works best for specific use cases in today’s complex industrial environments. “
Features included in the beta:
- Flexible pipeline: The platform is an advanced and innovative solution that allows dynamic reconfiguration and evolves from the most important deployments to agent-type instances, all from a single code base.
- Unique code base: SynSaber developed the base in the beta to support almost any OT visibility use case imaginable. The pipeline is ready for every unique use case by offering scalable analytics, flexible deployments, and straight-through packet capture processing.
From remote substations to global manufacturing, every industrial control system (ICS) environment requires full visibility into operational technology (OT) to operate safely. SynSaber’s vendor independent software will fit anywhere in any ICS environment and send data to any collection point.
By providing flexible and scalable collection and analysis for OT security programs, SynSaber fills the gaps left by current offerings in the existing landscape. Here are some relevant use cases for SynSaber software:
Asset identification and profiling Threat detection Full packet captures
Delivery to one or more systems Operational monitoring
A current beta participant (senior analyst for a US-based energy utility) recently shared what prompted them to join the beta of SynSaber: âMany facilities have critical networks in locations away from the control room and operators, and we often don’t have extra fiber to use in those locations that would typically be needed for other solutions. With SynSaber, we hope to deploy a small device that will allow monitoring of these remote locations.“
The analyst also indicated that due to their size, they have a small Security Operations Center (SOC) with dedicated cybersecurity people, but the vast majority of utilities and cooperatives do not have not from the same resources. âWe have a responsibility to help cooperatives and small utilities by finding solutions that will allow them to implement simple and effective solutions for cybersecurity monitoring. I think every midsize to large utility should engage with vendors through beta participation or other methods to encourage progress in this space.. “
