BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CyberX, the IoT and industrial control system (ICS) security company, today announced that the CyberX IoT/ICS Cybersecurity Platform has been named a Best SCADA Security Solution finalist for the 2020 SC Awards. The finalists and winners for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on February 25, 2020 in San Francisco.
“The cybersecurity vendor space is growing ever more crowded, but this year’s Trust Award finalists have differentiated themselves by offering best-in-class capabilities, including functionality, manageability, ease-of-deployment and scalability,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “For this reason, CyberX has earned its place among the top companies in its category.”
Recent attacks on unmanaged IoT devices and industrial control networks are driving increased board-level awareness of IoT/ICS risks, including safety and environmental incidents, financial losses due to plant downtime, and theft of sensitive corporate intellectual property. The SC Awards recognition comes on the heels of CyberX being named a “Hot IoT Security Startup to Watch” and winning three Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in 2019.
CyberX’s agentless, non-intrusive solution is easy to deploy and delivers immediate insights less than an hour after being connected to IoT/ICS networks, without requiring any configuration of rules or signatures. Additionally, CyberX offers the only IoT/ICS security platform with patented IoT/ICS-aware behavioral analytics and machine learning, resulting in faster and more accurate threat detection. To simplify integration with existing SOC workflows and incident response, the platform integrates out-of-the-box with existing IT security stacks (Splunk, IBM QRadar, ServiceNow, etc.).
“The 2020 SC Awards brings together the best of the best in cybersecurity. As the longest-standing pure-play provider in this space, we’re honored to have been selected for this coveted finalist award,” said Omer Schneider, co-founder and CEO of CyberX.
Nir Giller, co-founder, GM, and CTO of CyberX added, “We built our IoT/ICS security platform to keep organizations safe from today’s most determined and sophisticated adversaries, ranging from nation-states to cybercriminals and hacktivists. Today’s recognition validates the need for CyberX’s purpose-built IoT/ICS security and our commitment to providing customers with a practical, powerful, and mature security solution.”
