Cybersecurity – an evolving existential threat for engineering and construction

From controlling critical services, to theft of confidential information, there are many reasons why construction and engineering businesses might face a cyber-attack.

A changing industry

With the exponential growth in Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Control Technology devices, a stringent cyber security vision with reliable automation is absolutely essential. As such, SenseOn has been specifically designed for busy teams who need to quickly & effortlessly mature their cyber security coverage and responsiveness.

"SenseOn is able to protect the business as it looks to grow and adopt new technologies."

Minimal effort required to correlate data

With traditional tooling, the complex nature of an engineering & construction digital estate would generate a significant amount of security data, often in different formats. SenseOn on the other hand correlates all of this data into one usable format so analysts can instantly find out who, what, where, when and how without having to try and link up information from disparate sources.

Direct observation of your network

As the engineering & construction industries are becoming more distributed and complex, it is becoming even harder to access network information with traditional tools. SenseOn’s Universal Sensor collects data across remote workers, corporate offices, production sites and cloud instances at once with an EPNS service to correlate endpoint information and the network data at the point of being recorded. 

Drastic reduction in blind spots

With a complex digital estate and a range of IT, IoT and Industrial Control Technology devices, blindspots are almost inevitable for engineering & construction firms using any traditional security tools. This causes significant risk as any gap could be an entryway for adversaries. SenseOn avoids this risk by providing timely, complete and consistent data across every corner of your digital estate.

Reduction of noise

As with many security teams, resources for cyber security within engineering & construction firms are often thinly stretched. As such, there is rarely the capacity to resolve the thousands of alerts that are generated by traditional security tools. Using a highly accurate AI based reasoning framework, SenseOn only brings true positive alerts to the attention of analysts, dramatically reducing security operating costs.
