NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Indegy, the leader in industrial cyber security, today announced it was named IoT Security Solution of the Year by Computing magazine, the UK’s leading business technology publication, in its inaugural Big Data and IoT Excellence Awards program. Winners were selected by a blue ribbon panel of judges that included Computing’s editors and data science experts from CERN, the European Space Agency, MEC (one of the world's leading media agency networks), a major online brand retailer, a utility, a venture builder, and a financial services organization.
“Indegy is honored to be named IoT Security Solution of the Year in Computing’s first-ever Big Data and IoT Excellence awards,” said Dana Tamir, vice president of market strategy for Indegy. “The industrial sector is increasingly introducing IOT technologies to improve operational and supply chain efficiencies, and support business intelligence efforts. However, these technologies can expose the critical industrial control systems to cyber threats. The Indegy platform provides real-time situational awareness and visibility into physical process control devices to protect against cyber attacks, insider threats and human error.”
Indegy has developed the first cyber security platform that provides comprehensive visibility into the control-plane engineering activities of operational technology (OT) networks used in critical infrastructures including energy, water, petrochemical, manufacturing and more. The Indegy platform detects anomalies, malicious activity and unauthorized access, including logic changes, configuration changes, and firmware uploads/downloads made to process controllers like PLCs, RTUs, and DCS controllers. This enables ICS engineers and security staff to detect and respond to IIoT threats, prevent operational disruptions and physical damage, and ensure the safety, reliability and security of industrial control (ICS) and SCADA systems.
