and IT Assets in Operational Networks as Strategic Differentiator
NEW YORK (BUSINESS WIRE) lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ICS?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ICSlt;/agt; Indegy , a leader in industrialcyber security, today announced that a new report by
451cites the company’s Indegy Industrial Cyber Security Suite
as giving customers a more holistic view into the operational status and
security posture of their ICS (industrial control system) networks. A
complete copy of the report is available here .
“The ability to provide visibility into network operations is table
stakes for any ICS security program. ICS security vendors will need to
continue seeking differentiation by enriching that visibility down to
the device level and offering higher order functions such as threat
intelligence, incident response and vulnerability management in order to
remain competitive,” said Patrick Daly, Analyst with 451 Research.
According to the report, Indegy’s primary differentiator comes from the
fact that it has offered active detection capabilities through Device
Integrity queries since 2016, whereas many of its competitors initially
(and some still do) prioritized passive detection. With the expansion of
its platform’s support beyond operational assets to IT; Indegy can
discover and provide visibility into the activities of all of a
customer’s windows machines, network switches, servers and other
components that are critical aspects of most ICS environments. Combined
with policy and anomaly based threat hunting, this gives customers a
more holistic view and response mechanism based on the operational
status and security posture of their ICS networks.
“Unlike competing solutions, Indegy has focused since day one on
providing the deepest and most complete visibility, security and control
for proprietary devices that control industrial processes in critical
infrastructures, manufacturing, energy and water treatment, ” said Barak
Perelman, CEO of Indegy. “Our ability to actively and passively monitor
both operational and information technology assets provides customers a
360 degree view of threats regardless of whether they originate from an
external attack, malicious insider or are the result of human error.”
Indegy, a leader in industrial cyber security,
protects industrial control system (ICS) networks from cyber threats,malicious insiders and human error. The
arms security and operations
teams with full visibility, security and control of ICS activity and
threats by combining hybrid, policy-based monitoring and network anomaly
detection with unique device integrity checks. Indegy solutions are
installed in manufacturing, pharmaceutical, energy, water and other
industrial organizations around the world.
