NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2018 — Indegy, a leader in industrial cyber security, today announced it won the E.ON Corporate Challenge on Cyber Security against six other companies. The hands-on, one-day challenge was organized by leading European energy provider E.ON and its corporate accelerator and seed-investor :agile. Based on excellent performance and an outstanding product, Indegy has been awarded a paid pilot with the Information Security unit of E.ON.
“We have found one startup that will help us address a leading challenge in a future of rapidly increasing and changing devices – asset discovery,” said René Rindermann, Chief Information Security Officer at E.ON SE. “Indegy has developed a solution that allows us not only to identify devices by listening, but also to proactively query them and get additional information. This information is not only valuable for security teams, but also for their colleagues, who are operating those assets.”
