NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Indegy, the leader in industrial cyber security, today announced it was named a Cool Vendor for 2017 by Gartner, Inc. In the report, Cool Vendors in Digitalization Through Industrie 4.0, Gartner analysts profile vendors that provide innovative solutions for device and information management, analytics, security, and integration for industrial IoT platform consolidation.
According to Gartner: “Cybersecurity, reliability and safety are critical success factors for Industrie 4.0 initiatives… Security and risk management leaders responsible for OT (operational technology) security in Industrie 4.0 implementations should be seeking targeted tools for specific Industrie 4.0 security needs today.”

“We believe being named a Gartner Cool Vendor validates our unique ability to detect security threats and anomalies in industrial control systems early in the reconnaissance phase, during the attack, through forensics, and support recovery after events,” said Barak Perelman, CEO of Indegy. “IT and OT engineers tasked with securing operations against emerging threats find Indegy very effective because it not only detects network anomalies and suspicious process parameters, but also looks deep into the privileged engineering activities performed over proprietary, vendor specific protocols, which are more difficult to monitor.”
Indegy has developed the first cyber security platform that provides comprehensive visibility into the control-plane engineering activities of OT networks used in critical infrastructures including oil and gas, power utilities, pharmaceutical & automotive 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 IT security staff to detect and respond to OT threats, prevent operational disruptions and physical damage, and ensure the safety, reliability and security of industrial control (ICS) and SCADA systems.
Indegy, the leader in industrial cyber security, protects Industrial Control Systems (ICS) used in critical infrastructures, utilities and manufacturing industries against operational disruptions caused by external and internal threats. By providing comprehensive visibility into the control-plane engineering activities performed in operational technology networks, Indegy’s Industrial Cyber Security Platform automatically discovers all controllers (PLCs, RTUs, DCS controllers) on ICS networks, monitors all access and changes in real-time, and validates their integrity ensuring no unauthorized changes go undetected. Indegy enables advanced detection and response to threats that place the safety, reliability and security of industrial networks at risk before damage occurs.
The company was named one of the 10 Most Promising Cyber Security Startups by Forbes Israel, is a TiE50 winner and Network World Hot Security Startup to Watch. For more information visit www.indegy.com, and follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
