About Us: ICS Security for the IIoT

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will not thrive without cybersecurity as one of its pillars.

Critical infrastructure and other industrial organizations still rely on ICS and SCADA systems that were designed decades ago, lacking most of the security controls we now take for granted in enterprise IT networks.

As IT and OT networks converge to support IIoT initiatives such as Smart Manufacturing and SmartGrid, we can no longer rely on perimeter firewalls and other legacy defenses that weren’t designed to address targeted threats, zero-day exploits, and careless or malicious insiders.

CyberX provides the most widely-deployed industrial cybersecurity platform for continuous, non-invasive risk assessment and M2M anomaly detection. Our purpose-built platform enables organizations to detect and respond faster to risk in their industrial networks. Recognized by Gartner as a “Cool Vendor,” CyberX is the only ICS security vendor selected for the SINET16 Innovator Award sponsored by the US DHS and DoD.

Supporting all industrial protocols, our technology is rapidly deployed with zero impact on operations, integrating via REST APIs with all HMIs and SIEMs. CyberX uses patent-pending M2M behavioral analytics to model ICS networks as deterministic sequences of states and transitions, a technique known as finite state modeling (FSM). Combined with other analytics and proprietary ICS threat intelligence, this enables rapid detection of industrial malware such as BlackEnergy and Havex, and vulnerabilities such as unauthorized remote access and device misconfigurations.

CyberX was founded by Omer Schneider and Nir Giller, both veterans of an elite IDF cybersecurity unit charged with securing their country’s national critical infrastructure. With deep domain expertise and practical real-world experience with OT networks, we’ve engineered our platform to quickly deliver practical insights to ICS security and operations teams. Our deployments currently span diverse industrial sectors including energy, manufacturing, electric utilities, water, oil & gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and transportation.

CyberX is backed by Norwest Venture Partners, Glilot Capital, Swarth Group, GlenRock IsraelFlint Capital, OurCrowd and angel investors Gigi Levy and Stan Chudnovsky.

CyberX is a member of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and ICS-ISAC.
