Dragos Unveils Fortinet SIEM Integration for Network Threat Detection

Dragos, a company that specializes in cybersecurity solutions for industrial control systems (ICS) and operational technology (OT), has added Fortinet FortiSIEM security information and event management (SIEM) capabilities to its portfolio, according to a prepared statement.

In doing so, Dragos customers can leverage FortiSIEM to visualize cyber threats across IT and OT networks.

The Dragos-Fortinet integration provides visibility into IT and OT threats to simplify response workflows for security operations center (SOC) teams, the companies stated. It ensures that Dragos customers can use FortiSIEM to send threat notifications to the Dragos Platform to improve SOC visibility.

A Closer Look at the Dragos Platform and FortiSIEM

The Dragos Platform helps organizations visualize, detect and respond to IT and OT threats, the company indicated. It analyzes multiple data sources to provide insights into IT and OT environments and pinpoints malicious behaviors across these environments.

FortiSIEM is an SIEM solution that leverages machine learning and user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) to provides insights into network availability, utilization and security, Fortinet noted. It also offers security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) capabilities.

Dragos will leverage FortiSIEM's capabilities to help its customers improve visibility and response across their IT and OT networks, Dragos Senior Business Development Manager Clayton Coleman stated. That way, Dragos enables its customers to use the Dragos Platform in combination with FortiSIEM to quickly detect and respond to IT and OT threats.

Meanwhile, the Dragos partnership comes after Fortinet last week acquired Opaq Networks, a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) cloud provider that promotes Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) cloud solutions to MSSPs. Fortinet also recently acquired cybersecurity companies CyberSponse, enSilo and Bradford Networks.
