Thales and Schneider Electric will jointly propose cybersecurity solutions for protecting the automation and command-and-control systems from attacks. 

Thales and Schneider Electric yesterday have signed a commercial cooperation agreement for the development of cybersecurity solutions and services to protect command-and-control systems from cyberattack. 

As a result of this cooperation, essential operators, industry and defence customers will benefit from state-of-the-art solutions to protect them from new and emerging threats such as computer attacks launched from their management systems, unauthorised access across wireless networks and malware introduced via USB memory sticks. These solutions will also assure compliance with new national and international regulations in the area of security for digital command-and-control systems. 

Solutions will include risk management, vulnerability analysis, definition of security architectures, implementation of protection and surveillance measures, security maintenance and incident response management, and will be tailored to the automation and command-and-control systems in service with Schneider Electric and Thales's customers and their specific environments.

Vincent Marfaing, Thales Vice President Information Technology Security/Cybersecurity, said: "Digital security of critical infrastructures is a top priority for the authorities in France and other countries. Through our cooperation with Schneider Electric, we will offer a range of world-class technical solutions to meet this requirement."

Sylvain Frodé de la Forêt, Vice President of Partner Projects & Buildings, Schneider Electric France, added: "The cooperation with Thales enables us to further extend the range of solutions we offer to our customers in sensitive sectors to address their growing concerns over cybersecurity. It is an alliance between two market leaders designed to step up to one of the major challenges of our times."
