FOXBORO, Mass. -- Invensys Process Systems, a leading provider of process control network security, announced today that it will offer 24/7 global network security monitoring and management through a partnership with Integralis, a leading global provider of managed security services. This unique collaboration between a major process control vendor and a major IT services provider demonstrates the growing importance of combining process engineering and IT expertise in warding off cyber threats to refineries, public utilities, pharmaceutical plants and other process industries.

"The process industries have a growing need to protect their production assets from cyber threats, but doing so requires a blend of production management and IT Security skills that few companies can afford to maintain on site. In partnering with one of the world's largest managed security service providers, Invensys is demonstrating a high level commitment to providing comprehensive cyber security protection to its customers," said Bob Mick, vice president of emerging technologies at the ARC Advisory group.

The Invensys portfolio of cyber security services includes customized assessments, architecture design, implementation and management. Examples of customized services include site and vulnerability assessments, policy requirement drafting, security architecture and policy development, modernization of existing technology and continuous management, review, testing and optimization.

Integralis extends the Invensys portfolio by providing managed security services through a global network of fully redundant Security Operations Centers (SOCs). Integralis provides managed security services around best of breed perimeter security, content security, threat & vulnerability management and secure authentication devices. After Invensys consultants design and implement a program, the customer can leverage Integralis' network of global centers, staffed 24/7 by security experts with all the tools and information to provide ongoing management and apprise them of threats.

"Such close collaboration with the consulting and planning services of Invensys makes 24/7 security management very affordable and highly effective. The Invensys emphasis on threat prevention keeps the actual amount of threat detection and management to a minimum, but if suspicious activity does get through, we have cyber security specialists on the case 24 hours a day, and advanced tools and processes," said Robin Mayo, Integralis President, Americas.
