Recent attacks on unmanaged IoT devices and industrial control networks are driving increased board-level awareness of the need for continuous IoT/ICS security monitoring and risk management. These incidents have shown that IoT/ICS attacks can result in catastrophic safety incidents, financial losses due to factory downtime, and theft of sensitive corporate IP. CyberX offers the only IoT/ICS security platform with patented M2M-aware behavioral analytics and machine learning technology, tightly integrated with existing IT security stacks (Splunk, IBM QRadar, Palo Alto Networks, CyberArk, etc.).
“CyberX has a strategic market opportunity with a solid management team, scalable technology that can be rapidly deployed, and an impressive list of global enterprise customers,” said Zoran. “I am thrilled to apply my experience and strategic guidance at a time when enterprises across all sectors are making serious investments in IoT/ICS cyber defenses.”
Funded by Norwest Venture Partners, Qualcomm Ventures and other leading venture firms, CyberX delivers the only cybersecurity platform built by blue-team experts with a track record of defending critical national infrastructure. That difference is the foundation for the most widely deployed platform for continuously reducing IoT and ICS risk and preventing costly production outages, safety failures, and theft of sensitive intellectual property.
