Cisco announced that Shell has deployed Cisco Secure Ops Solution to increase security maturity level by improving its cyber security and risk management, while lowering costs of delivery and operations.
Cisco Secure Ops is designed to help address evolving cyber security threats to the energy industry, specifically in the industrial control system (ICS) domain. It can address concerns involving safety, environmental, and cyber threats, when making decisions in real time.
Shell will deploy the Cisco Secure Ops Solution at upstream, downstream and lubricant sites. The solution provides remote proactive monitoring and SLA-driven management of security, applications and infrastructure.
Shell has deployed hardware and virtualized security applications from Cisco at each site. These applications are managed and hosted out of a security operations center (SOC), called the SecureCenter.
Greg Carter, director/GM, Internet of Everything Services Group, Cisco, said, “Cisco Secure Ops Solution was designed to provide a robust and secure solution to quickly address potential threats that come with the increase in connected people, processes and things with IoE.”
Cisco Secure Ops is supported by industrial control system delivery partners, like Rockwell and Yokogawa and technology providers such as McAfee and Symantec, . Cisco expects more partners to join the Cisco Secure Ops ecosystem.
