Siemens Energy today announced a new artificial intelligence (AI)-based industrial cybersecurity service, Managed Detection and Response (MDR), powered by Eos.ii, to help small and medium-sized energy companies defend critical infrastructure against cyberattacks. MDR’s technology platform, Eos.ii, leverages AI and machine learning methodologies to gather and model real-time energy asset intelligence. This allows Siemens Energy’s cybersecurity experts to monitor, detect and uncover attacks before they execute. Armed with actionable insights from MDR’s technology platform, Siemens Energy’s cybersecurity experts implement precise defense measures in the company’s state-of-the-art operational technology-security operations center (OT-SOC) to defend power generation, oil and gas, renewable energy, and transmission and distribution customers.
