Verano Solves Its Biggest Problem

Aug. 11, 2004

According to Lori Dustin, Verano’s vice president of marketing, “Our biggest problem has been to gain acceptance from both the plant automation professionals and the enterprise IT team. Our experience in the process SCADA market gives us recognition from the plant, but not IT.” Verano released their Industrial Defender suite of solutions for security in 2003 and according to the company, Industrial Defender is the first cybersecurity management system designed specifically for industrial plant operations.

Betrusted offers managed security services and 24/7 monitoring services to global enterprises from offices around the world. “Partnering with Verano allows us to expand our professional and managed security services into mission-critical organizations such as process, water, power, energy and mass transportation,” says Kerry Bailey, Americas CEO for Betrusted.

Verano and Betrusted will jointly offer consulting services, policy recommendations, implementation and monitoring of deployed security technology from the enterprise to the production assets.  For more information visit and
