Italy based power generation company Ansaldo Energia has selected Kaspersky as a partner to secure plants, machinery and industrial supply chains.
Ansaldo Energia has started deploying Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity to reinforce the protection of its operational technology (OT) networks from ICS threats.
Kaspersky has been an Ansaldo Energia partner in IT security since 2013, protecting the company’s endpoints with innovative technologies, including the Kaspersky EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) reactive component — now applied to over 5,000 distributed and centralized nodes.
At the end of 2019, Ansaldo Energia started to deploy KICS for Networks and KICS for Nodes in its OT networks. These products are designed specifically to protect various levels of industrial infrastructure, including SCADA, DCS, PLC, MES, engineering workstations and network connections.
“We chose Kaspersky as our strategic security partner because the company can not only give us the expertise to protect our industrial systems and networks, but also the ability to create together a valuable offering for other operators in our ecosystem,” said Luca Manuelli, chief digital officer of Ansaldo Energia.
