OpreXTM IT/OT Security Operations Center by Yokogawa

In 2019, Yokogawa began developing an internal security monitoring service for the IT infrastructure of Yokogawa Group companies around the globe.

Yokogawa Electric Corporation has released the OpreXTM IT/OT Security Operations Center (IT/OT SOC) service. This new addition to the OpreX Safety and Security family is a centrally managed service based on people (service organization), processes, and technology.

OT-SOCTargeted primarily at industrial enterprises, this service was developed by Yokogawa to improve the security of IT and OT networks by detecting, analyzing, and enabling a quick and effective response to cybersecurity incidents from anywhere in the world.

Monitoring in real-time for cybersecurity threats to networks and IT/OT infrastructure offers customers comprehensive protection that mitigates both operational and business downtime and eases the task of IT/OT asset management.

Development Background

New cybersecurity threats emerge every day. As technologies evolve, so do the associated cyber threats and vulnerabilities that can cause severe damage to an organization’s data, assets, and reputation. Security operations centers (SOCs) are increasingly regarded as critical to an effective cybersecurity strategy as they proactively focus on undiscovered cyber security threats and vulnerabilities.

While traditionally, the IT and OT domains have been managed separately, the convergence of IT and OT networks — driven by digital transformation (DX) — has made the two domains increasingly interdependent. For efficiency reasons, organizations can choose to establish a converged IT and OT SOC that acts as one team, using a shared data lake, tooling, resources, and processes.

In 2019, Yokogawa began developing an internal security monitoring service for the IT infrastructure of Yokogawa Group companies around the globe, monitoring personal computers, DNS/AD servers, intrusion detection systems, and factory systems and processing up to 600 million events a day by using cyber threat intelligence (CTI) and machine learning (ML) programs. Utilizing the vast experience that it has gained internally, and complemented by its best-in-class approach to OT security for its customers, Yokogawa has developed a cloud-based IT/OT SOC service to provide its customers with an integrated, consistent, and holistic approach to security for the IT and OT domains.
