Industrial Cyber Security Innovator Cited for Ability to Detect Changes to ICS/SCADA and Process Controllers to Protect Against Attacks
PALO ALTO, Calif., June 13, 2016 – Indegy, the industrial cyber security company, today announced that it was selected by Network World as a Hot Security Startup to Watch for its innovative Indegy Industrial Cyber Security Platform that protects supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control devices from cyber threats, malicious insiders and human error. The company was also recently named one of the 10 Most Promising Cyber Security Startups by Forbes Israel.
According to Network World’s editors: “Attacks on industrial control and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems is a continuing problem hanging over critical infrastructure like power grids and water supplies. Its [Indegy] appliances protect deployed SCADA devices that may be too numerous to replace with more secure ones. By monitoring to find alterations in the control planes of SCADA devices Indegy can discover potential changes to their programmable logic controllers that may indicate attacks. This can help discover threats before they are carried out to older systems lacking defenses.”
“Being recognized by Network World and Forbes in the same week as a hot security startup is a rare honor,” said Barak Perelman, CEO of Indegy. “Security for SCADA and industrial control systems is becoming a top concern across a wide range of industries, since these infrastructures lack adequate protection from cyber threats. Our ability to monitor proprietary industrial protocols and changes made to individual devices is a major breakthrough.”
Indegy provides real-time visibility and security for industrial control systems (ICS) used across all critical infrastructure sectors (energy, power, water utilities, petrochemicals, manufacturing, etc.). The Indegy platform is natively designed for ICS networks and provides unprecedented visibility and control to ensure operational safety and protect against cyber attacks, malicious insiders, and operational mistakes. The Indegy platform monitors all ICS network activity with a unique focus on proprietary control-layer protocols, and provides critical real-time visibility into controller logic changes, configuration changes, firmware downloads and controller state. The platform enables ICS engineers and security staff to quickly pinpoint the source of problems and effectively respond to prevent operational disruptions and physical damage.
