罗克韦尔自动化签署协议收购Verve工业保护公司

Acquisition to expand Rockwell’s cybersecurity offering, building the resiliency and security of customers’ operations

收购将扩大罗克韦尔的网络安全产品范围,增强客户运营的韧性和安全性

MILWAUKEE, OCTOBER 23, 2023 -- Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK), the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Verve Industrial Protection, a cybersecurity software and services company that focuses specifically on industrial environments, expanding the offeringsof Rockwell with an industry-leading asset inventory system and vulnerability management solution.

2023年10月23日,密尔沃基——全球大的致力于工业自动化和数字化转型的公司罗克韦尔自动化今天宣布,已签署最终协议收购Verve工业保护公司,这是一家专注于工业环境的网络安全软件和服务公司,其业界领的资产库存系统和漏洞管理解决方案将扩大罗克韦尔的产品范围。

A recent Rockwell Automation report found that operational technology (OT) and industrial control systems (ICS) attacks are on the rise, with 60% of the incidents studied resulting in operational disruption. As companies continually add hardware and software alongside legacy equipment in plants, many organizations struggle to manage and protect these assets across an expanded attack surface, increasing the potential for cyberattacks. Meanwhile, the industry is plagued with significant resource and talent shortages needed to implement and manage operational technology (OT) cybersecurity programs. The Verve Security Center platform enables real-time asset inventory, vulnerability management, and risk remediation that will strengthen Rockwell’s current offerings and address these issues.

罗克韦尔自动化最近的一份报告发现,运营技术(OT)和工业控制系统(ICS)攻击呈上升趋势,所研究的事件中有60%造成了运营中断。随着企业在工厂中不断增加硬件和软件以及传统设备,许多组织都在努力管理和保护这些资产,以应对不断扩大的攻击面,从而增加了网络攻击的可能性。与此同时,实施和管理运营技术网络安全计划所需的资源和人才严重短缺,困扰着整个行业。Verve Security Center平台可实现实时资产清查、漏洞管理和风险修复,这将加强罗克韦尔的现有产品并解决这些问题。

The Verve Security Center platform was built to provide IT-level security while addressing the unique challenges of the OT environment. At the center of the Verve platform is an asset inventory system that recognizes all industrial assets, regardless of manufacturer. Verve’s proprietary approach communicates directly with the assets, gathering critical information without impacting network performance and interrupting production. It then aggregates a wide range of data sources, including Rockwell’s partner technologies, into its platform as a “single pane of glass" that provides actionable insight for customers to quickly address their highest risk assets.

Verve Security Center平台旨在提供IT级别的安全性,同时应对OT环境的独挑战。Verve平台的核心是一个资产库存系统,可识别所有工业资产,无论其制造商是谁。Verve的专有方法直接与资产通信,在不影响网络性能和中断生产的情况下收集关键信息。然后,它将广泛的数据源(包括罗克韦尔的合作伙伴技术)汇总到其平台上,作为 "单一窗口",为客户提供可操作的洞察力,以快速处理其风险最高的资产。

Verve professional services also provide ongoing remediation, along with strategic roadmap and business case development, further deepening Rockwell’s cybersecurity consulting capabilities. Going forward, customers will benefit from comprehensive capabilities that span the entire attack continuum with the combined expertise of Verve, Rockwell, and Rockwell’s technology partnerships.

Verve专业服务还提供持续的补救措施,以及战略路线图和业务案例开发,进一步深化了罗克韦尔的网络安全咨询能力。展望未来,客户将受益于Verve、罗克韦尔及其技术合作伙伴的综合专业能力,这些能力涵盖了整个攻击过程。

The acquisition is subject to customary approvals and is expected to close in the first quarter of Rockwell’s fiscal year 2024. At close, Verve will report into Rockwell’s Lifecycle Services operating segment.

此次收购尚需获得惯例批准,预计将在罗克韦尔2024财年第一季度完成。收购完成后,Verve将隶属于罗克韦尔生命周期服务运营部门。
