HANOVER, Md., May 13, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Dragos Inc., provider of the industrial sector's most trusted asset identification, threat detection, response platform, and services, today announced an integration availability of the Dragos Platform with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager™. This integration enables customers to deploy more robust security solutions and better protect their assets from evolving cyber threats.
The Dragos Platform for industrial cybersecurity employs threat behavior analytics to provide unparalleled detection of adversaries targeting Industrial Control Systems (ICS). The Dragos and McAfee integration is certified for release and provides complete visibility of IT and OT threats to simplify response workflows for defenders. The initial integration release allows the Dragos Platform to share notifications with the McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (SIEM technology).

The integration between McAfee and the Dragos Platform leverages the proven knowledge and expertise of both companies in detecting and responding to threats," said Josh Carlson, Senior Business Development Manager, Dragos.
