Mission Secure Launches Sentinel 5.0 Platform, Enabling Contextual and Zero Trust Security for Critical Infrastructure OT


announces technology partnership with Verve Industrial

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., November 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Mission Secure, a leader in OT and ICS cybersecurity, today announced the release of its Sentinel 5.0 platform, a significant step in enabling Zero Trust security architectures for critical infrastructure. The Sentinel 5.0 platform provides dynamic, contextual cybersecurity policy monitoring and enforcement for operational technology systems.

“Zero Trust architectures are the most powerful and practical way to increase security and reduce risk for industrial cyber-physical processes,” says jens meggers, Executive Chairman of Mission Secure. “With Sentinel 5.0, we’re launching a game changer that enables granular enforcement of access policies from the physical signal to the cloud. It’s whitelisting on steroids: industrial strength, context, prevention and mitigation of intrusions.”

Why Zero Trust?

Zero Trust is a well-established IT cybersecurity principle that has yet to be widely adopted in industrial OT. It eliminates implicit trust in the network perimeter by continuously validating every step of the digital interaction. In the absence of Zero Trust architectures, industrial operators often rely on disjointed tool sets, such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and endpoint vulnerability scanning, without acquiring fully capable of managing and securing industrial operating environments.

A powerful policy driver

With Sentinel 5.0, Mission Secure launches a platform that allows operators to define and enforce granular policies based on a wide range of inputs, including network traffic, remote access attempts, versions and asset firmware vulnerabilities, as well as the actual digital or analog signal generated by the physics. devices.

While the Sentinel 5.0 platform includes standard features such as passive monitoring, asset discovery, and alerts, the core component of the platform is a fine-grained policy engine that enables highly sophisticated and specific to OT:

  • Creation of access control policies to define the conditions under which users or applications can send commands to industrial equipment.
  • Identify firmware status and vulnerabilities, as well as restrict access to only fully patched systems.
  • Alert and act on physical signal anomalies, and isolate systems that exhibit abnormal behavior.
  • Support root cause analysis by correlating network events with sensor outputs.

Mission Secure also announced a technology partnership with Verve Industrial, the leading provider of IT-OT asset inventory and vulnerability management solutions. “Going beyond perimeter detection to protect the most vulnerable and critical OT assets at the endpoint is a significant step towards securing the cyber-physical process,” said John LivingstoneVerve CEO.

“Zero Trust is a long journey for industrial operators,” said Chet Mroz, President of Mission Secure. “Sentinel 5.0 points a bold step into the future for our customers as they begin their journey.”
