Schneider Electric partners with McAfee to expand Cybersecurity capabilities

Schneider Electric and  McAfee partner to provide cybersecurity solutions for the utility and critical infrastructure market. This collaboration will enable Schneider Electric customers to add tested and certified application whitelisting capabilities in the management of core offerings of water, oil & gas, electric networks and transportation infrastructures. This will strengthen customers’ Operations Technology (OT) security and lower ownership costs without significantly impacting the performance of critical solutions. The supported portfolio of products includes leading SCADA and energy management solutions.
The partnership with McAfee will allow Schneider Electric customers to combine dynamic whitelisting capabilities and change control technology to ensure that only trusted applications run on critical infrastructure systems. This includes being able to monitor and manage changes to mitigate malicious or accidental system modifications, preventing execution of unauthorised code and many common malware on their systems. These capabilities protect critical systems from zero-day attacks, reduce in-field breakage, and keep systems and devices compliant with security standards through patch cycles.
McAfee Embedded Control, Integrity Control & Application Control solutions will increase the safety, availability and reliability of critical infrastructure environments around the world.  “The expansion of our security offer to incorporate McAfee whitelisting capabilities enables Schneider Electric to serve our customers more effectively using a modern and secure critical infrastructure environment,” said  Cyril Perducat, Senior Vice President Software and Digital Services Transformation, Global Solutions, Schneider Electric.
