SparkCognition, Siemens
Ally To Stop Cyberattacks
AUSTIN, TX.-SparkCognition and
Siemens are collaborating on a cybersecurity system-DeepArmor Industrial, fortified by Siemens-they say is designed
to protect endpoint or remote operational
technology by leveraging artificial intelligence to detect cyberattacks.
The AI-driven system will deliver
next-generation antivirus, threat detection,
application control and zero-day attack
prevention to endpoint power generation,
oil and gas and transmission and distri-

bution assets, the partners detail.
"Cyberattacks on the energy industry
are on the rise in volume and in sophistication, and they increasingly threaten
companies' physical safety and security,
business operations, and the critical infrastructure that powers communities
throughout the world," warns Leo Simonovich, Siemens' head of industrial
cybersecurity. "This new partnership
combines Siemens' cybersecurity expertise in securing operational technology
with SparkCognition's expertise in artificial intelligence to deliver the energy
industry's first solution capable of de-

tecting and protecting remote assets
against cyberattacks."
SparkCognition Chief Technology Officer Sridhar Sudarsan adds, "The industry
needs security solutions that can operate
autonomously and are designed with the
modern industrial environment in mind.
Together with Siemens, we are excited to
bring next-generation endpoint protection
that is specifically designed to increase the
cyber-resilience of operational technology
networks and prevent advanced threat actors
from impacting critical infrastructure."
