Analysts Cite Company’s Ability to Monitor both ICS Device Integrity and IT Assets in Operational Networks as Strategic Differentiator
NEW YORK, Dec. 12, 2018 — Indegy, a leader in industrial cyber security, today announced that a new report by 451 Research cites 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 Indegy Industrial Cyber Security Suite 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.
