Marty Edwards has worked for an ICS asset owner, INL, DHS, ISA and late last year he made the move to a security product vendor, Tenable. This happened at the same time that Tenable acquired Indegy for $78M, indicating they are serious about OT security space. I talk with Marty a bit about his past career and then focus on why he moved to Tenable and what Tenable's strategy is for the OT space. Marty’s impressions on what DHS / CISA / ICS-CERT has done since he left. Why Marty even considered working for a cybersecurity version? Did the Tenable acquisition of Indegy play a part in his decision? Is Tenable.OT rebranded Indegy product or something else? What are the plans to integrate the Indegy product into the Tenable.sc (Security Center) system? Is this simply a push of OT to SC? Or will it be bi-directional communication? What is Tenable’s commitment to the ICS security space? Given that Tenable and many others, McAfee, Symantec, Mandiant, …, have invested only to pull back in a bad quarter. Is Tenable an OT asset management solution? If so, what parts of asset management and how does it interact with the missing parts? How do the Tenable products prioritize vulnerabilities discovered in Tenable.OT or Tenable.SC? Links Tenable.OT Product Page Subscribe to Dale's ICS Security: Friday News and Notes
