TULSA, OK, May 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – AppSwarm, Corp. (OTC: SWRM), a software development company and aggregator of mobile applications, today announced it has entered into a Channel Partner Agreement with Tego Cyber Inc. to market the Tego Guardian cyberthreat application to the energy and aerospace industries in the Midwestern United States.
The oil and gas utilities industry constantly face threats from cyber incidents and data breaches. The ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline in May 2021 had a huge impact on the industry. In February 2022, it was also reported that European oil facilities were hit by cyberattacks and were forced to operate at a limited capacity. These latest incidents prove that the oil and gas supply process is heavily dependent on IT systems and that the critical operations could be disrupted by IT not working due to a cyber-attack.
In August 2021, the American Petroleum Institute updated cybersecurity standards for pipelines. It was recommended that ICS/OT security should not just cover traditional control systems but also modern systems that relate to critical operations. It also recommended that ICS/OT security should assess the current risk, including the system, threats, and impact. ~ Source: https://www.trendmicro.com/
With this agreement in place, AppSwarm now has the resources to create a new revenue stream in the emerging cyber threat intelligence market. The Tego Guardian is a proactive intelligent cyberthreat hunting tool that gives macro enterprises the ability to quickly track threats throughout their networks, mapping out exposures and expediting remediation. What makes the Tego Guardian different from other threat intelligence applications is that it provides a client’s cybersecurity team with a detailed ‘who, what, when, and where’ of a potential cyber threat. Other applications may identify that something is ‘malicious’ but do not provide any additional information. It is then up to the client’s cybersecurity team to research the threats to establish what actions need to be taken. The Tego Guardian automates the process, increasing the efficiency of security operations thereby saving time and money.
“Our Channel Partner Agreement with Tego Cyber provides Appswarm the opportunity to capitalize on the emerging cyber threat intelligence market,” commented Christopher Bailey, CEO of AppSwarm Corp. “Cybersecurity is no longer an afterthought but now has to become a major component-critical infrastructure for any organization. We are in the process of interviewing and hiring oil and gas industry veterans to head up our sales team and will provide updates as we progress,” continued Mr. Bailey.
