Dragos Inc. announced Jan. 23 that it’s achieved Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Manufacturing and Industrial Competency as the first partner with this competency designation in the operations technology (OT) cybersecurity category. This designation recognizes Dragos for its expertise in providing software and professional services solutions to help industrial manufacturers protect against destructive cyber-threats to their OT environments.

AWS Manufacturing and Industrial Competency for OT cybersecurity provides organizations with solutions across their digital transformation journey, ensuring they have support from a validated AWS partner to protect their infrastructure from cyber-threats. These solutions follow AWS best practices for building secure, high-performing, resilient cloud infrastructure for industry applications.

“This recognition demonstrates Dragos’ AWS technical expertise, and success in providing OT-specific visibility, vulnerability management, threat detection and incident response capabilities for protecting against cyber-threats to OT environments,” says Jon Lavender, CTO and co-founder at Dragos. “AWS Manufacturing and Industrial Competency demonstrates our leadership in the OT cybersecurity market and our commitment to working closely with AWS to continuously deliver the industrial cybersecurity solutions that enable digital transformation and drive manufacturing innovation.”

For example, Gabe Green, CISO at Koch Industries, reports that, “With the Dragos Platform on AWS, we quickly deployed a comprehensive, industrial-focused cybersecurity solution that gave us previously unachievable visibility into our ICS/OT assets, vulnerabilities, threats and response actions.”
