Harris CapRock Communications has launched SafePass™ Pro, an advanced cyber security solution for proactive defense against cyberattacks targeting oil and gas IT infrastructures.
Industry experts estimate cyberattacks against the global energy industry will cost businesses up to US$1.9 billion by 2018. SafePass Pro aims to improve network resources, minimise malware and spyware, enforce security policies and provide an opportunity to assess and eliminate network vulnerabilities.
The new cyber security solution includes Alert Logic threat monitoring services. Alert Logic Threat Manager provides network intrusion monitoring and detection, as well as a vulnerability scanner, while the firewall protection supports URL filtering, application filtering and security.
“Security breaches and emerging threats to corporate networks are impacting the oil and gas market with greater cost and frequency as offshore operations rely more heavily on always-on communications networks,” said Tracey Haslam, president, Harris CapRock. “SafePass Pro offers an unparalleled approach to cyber protection with the added ability of working with Harris cyber security experts committed to securing critical government networks.”
