Dragos Buys ICS Firm with US Dept. of Energy Roots


NexDefense ICS security tool will be offered for free by Dragos.

ICS security firm Dragos has acquired NexDefense, a pioneer security vendor in the industrial sector.

Dragos now is offering for free NexDefense’s continous monitoring and asset discovery tool for ICS/SCADA networks, which was developed as “Sophia” by the US Department of Energy at the Idaho National Laboratory in 2010 and 2011. Sophia was later updated and commercialized by NexDefense, which renamed the product “Integrity.”

“This technology will not be integrated into the Dragos platform; rather, it is a more of a precursor for organizations that are looking to take the first step toward ICS security,” says Robert M. Lee, founder and CEO of Dragos.

Dragos also is offering for free its CyberLens assessment tool to ICS operators. Financial terms of the acquisition were not released.
