Indegy, a provider of industrial cyber security, was named IoT Security Solution of the Year by Computing magazine, the UK´s business technology publication, in its inaugural Big Data and IoT Excellence Awards program, the company said.
Winners were selected by a blue ribbon panel of judges that included Computing´s editors and data science experts from CERN, the European Space Agency, MEC (one of the world´s media agency networks), a major online brand retailer, a utility, a venture builder, and a financial services organization.
Indegy has developed the first cyber security platform that provides comprehensive visibility into the control-plane engineering activities of operational technology (OT) networks used in critical infrastructures including energy, water, petrochemical, 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 security staff to detect and respond to IIoT threats, prevent operational disruptions and physical damage, and ensure the safety, reliability and security of industrial control (ICS) and SCADA systems.
Computing is the UK´s business technology publication.
Indegy protects Industrial Control Systems (ICS) used in critical infrastructures, utilities and manufacturing industries against operational disruptions caused by external and internal threats.
