Tenable Teams with Deloitte to Secure Fortune 500 Manufacturing Environments


COLUMBIA, Md., June 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tenable®, Inc. the Cyber Exposure company, announced a strategic collaboration with Deloitte to accelerate and secure smart manufacturing across Fortune 500 environments. Tenable and Deloitte have developed and implemented industrial-grade security solutions to help organizations understand, manage and reduce cyber risk in their manufacturing environments around the world.

According to a smart factory study from Deloitte and Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation, eighty-six percent of manufacturers believe smart factories will be the main driver of competitiveness in the next five years. These modern environments represent a massive business opportunity, but they also contribute to an expansive and converged attack surface of legacy information technology (IT) and new operational technology (OT). Increasingly, boards of directors and executives consider OT security a top business priority and risk. As such, smart factories require strategic, risk-based vulnerability management to defend and secure mission- and safety-critical systems.

Deloitte’s ecosystem for smart manufacturing provides organizations with greater speed, scale and security over their digital transformation initiatives. By deploying Tenable.ot — the industry’s first unified solution for securing IT/OT environments — as part of a secure-by-design model, joint customers benefit from unmatched visibility and control over their converged industrial environments, with advanced threat detection and mitigation to identify weak points before an attack ever occurs.

“Make no mistake, industrial environments run the global economy. They build, power and protect the world around us. Ensuring these smart factories are secure by design is paramount,” said Renaud Deraison, co-founder and chief technology officer, Tenable. “Strategic cybersecurity must be foundational to all smart factory initiatives. Without it, you’re building on pillars of sand. Securing modern, converged environments requires unified visibility across both IT and OT assets. We’re very excited to collaborate with Deloitte to do just that for customers around the world.”

In addition to the existing deployments around the world, Tenable.ot will also be showcased in Deloitte’s Smart Factory @ Wichita initiative — a 60,000-square-foot immersive experience equipped with the latest smart factory advancements — designed to demonstrate how manufacturers can embrace digital transformation in a secure, scalable way. In the facility opening this fall, joint customers will experience the power of a unified, risk-based view of their IT and OT environments, arming them with the visibility, security and control required to secure Industry 4.0.



“The Smart Factory at Wichita is designed to explore the full range of innovation with Industry 4.0 technologies and maintaining cybersecurity is a critical piece to the manufacturing life cycle,” said Stephen Laaper, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “With Tenable onboard as a builder sponsor, clients walking through the doors of the Smart Factory will have the ability to experience a secure industrial environment and can take solace in knowing critical organizational data is protected by a top leader in the industry.”
