CyberX Recognized for Innovation in IoT Security, ICS/SCADA Security, and Critical Infrastructure Security
BOSTON, February 21, 2019 – CyberX, the IIoT and industrial control system (ICS) security company, today announced it is a winner in three distinct product categories of the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards: IoT Security, ICS/SCADA Security, and Critical Infrastructure Security.
These coveted awards recognize CyberX’s innovation, platform maturity and ease of use, and deep expertise in safeguarding industrial and critical infrastructures. With deployments in more than 1,200 production ICS networks worldwide, CyberX delivers the only ICS cybersecurity platform supporting all five requirements of the NIST CSF (Cybersecurity Framework)and is the only ICS cybersecurity firm to have been awarded a patent for its ICS-aware threat detection analytics.
The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards is an independent awards program that honors companies and individuals that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. Each year, it is produced in cooperation with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, tapping into the experience of 400,000+ cybersecurity professionals to recognize the world’s best cybersecurity products, individuals, and organizations.
The three categories in which CyberX was honored represent a rapidly growing and critical cybersecurity imperative. On one hand, digital transformation and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are unlocking new levels of productivity, helping organizations improve safety, increase output, and maximize revenue. At the same time, digitalization is driving deployment of billions of IIoT devices and increased connectivity between IT and Operational Technology (OT) networks, increasing the attack surface and risk of costly and dangerous cyberattacks.
Purpose-built for IIoT and ICS security, CyberX’s agentless, non-invasive platform enables customers to auto-discover their assets and network topology, identify their most important vulnerabilities and attack vectors, and continuously monitor their OT networks for targeted threats and destructive cyberattacks such as WannaCry, NotPetya, and TRITON.
“CyberX has been a leader since our founding in 2013, and yet we’re still very grateful for continued recognition in the industry,” said Phil Neray, vice president of industrial cybersecurity, CyberX. “The best recognition, of course, is the successful adoption of our platform by some of the most complex and demanding Global 2000 enterprises worldwide.”
CyberX delivers the only industrial 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 ICS and IIoT risk and preventing costly production outages, safety failures, environmental incidents, and theft of sensitive intellectual property. CyberX delivers the only platform supporting all five components of the NIST CSF and all four requirements of Gartner’s Adaptive Security Architecture.
Notable CyberX customers include 2 of the top 5 US energy providers; a top 5 global pharmaceutical company; a top 5 US chemical company; and national electric and gas utilities across Europe and Asia-Pacific. Strategic partners include industry leaders such as Palo Alto Networks, IBM Security, Splunk, Optiv Security, McAfee, DXC Technology, and Deutsche-Telekom/T-Systems.
