Indegy, the leader in industrial cyber security, today announced it was selected as the Overall IoT Security Solution of the Year in the 2017 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards. The company was selected from over 2,000 nominations for its ability to protect industrial networks from threats associated with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The complete list of winners can be found at http://cybersecuritybreakthrough.com/award-winners/#unified.
Industrial networks are increasingly utilizing IIoT devices for collecting data used to improve decision-making and reduce operations management costs. However, these technologies are creating security challenges that can impact the safety and reliability of industrial control systems (ICS) and processes. The Indegy Cyber Security Platform protects operational networks used in critical infrastructure including energy, utilities, petrochemicals and manufacturing from both external and internal threats.
“Indegy is proud to be selected the Overall IoT Security Solution of the Year from such a large number of respected security companies and top startups,” said Barak Perelman, CEO of Indegy. “Industrial IoT products are proliferating and placing critical infrastructure at risk. Indegy’s unique approach ensures that operators have the end-to-end situational awareness and comprehensive visibility needed to protect against cyber threats introduced by IIoT devices.”
Indegy provides comprehensive visibility and security that spans the entire operational (OT) network, with a unique focus on control-plane activities performed over proprietary engineering protocols. This lets Indegy identify threats before damage can occur. The Indegy Platform also provides a comprehensive audit trail of all changes to ICS devices, who made them and when. It is the only solution that can capture access and changes to critical controllers, whether made over the network or by physically connecting to the controllers (via serial cable or USB drive).
