NAES Corporation, the power generation industry’s largest independent providers of operations and maintenance, has announced a partnership with DeNexus Inc, the leading provider of second-generation cyber risk quantification and management services to large industrial facilities, OT service providers, and the cyber insurance market.
“Partnering with DeNexus and leveraging the DeRISK platform allows us to help our clients make informed cyber risk management decisions, allocate cyber mitigation budgets more effectively, and gain access to quantifiable data and analytics that support their facilities,” said Alan Bull, NAES’s Vice President of Compliance and Fleet Services
Through this collaboration, NAES will have preferred access to DeNexus’ cyber quantification platform DeRISK, a cloud-based technology that provides evidence-based, data-driven, real-time visibility to an industrial facility’s risk exposure to cyber-attacks and events.

“Our partnership with NAES will provide a veritable one-stop-shop for the Cyber Risk Lifecycle of its fleet of power generation facilities,” said Jose M Seara, Founder and CEO of DeNexus. “DeRISK arms OT Industrial facilities with the data and tools they need to mitigate cyber risk against the increasing threat landscape and new regulatory and compliance requirements, all on a single, evidence-based, data-driven platform.”
