NexDefense is empowering control system professionals with a suite of pro-active cyber security technology products and services specifically designed for Industrial Control Systems (ICS).
In October 2013, the Battelle Energy Alliance (BEA) signed a Patent and Copyright License giving NexDefense exclusive rights to commercialize its Sophia software.
Sophia was designed to empower control system professionals with an easy-to-use tool that can overcome the current challenges in maintaining high levels of control system integrity and security.
Sophia, Greek for wisdom, is a patent-pending, passive, real-time diagnostic and security tool for ICS network fingerprinting and monitoring. Over the past three years, Sophia was developed at Idaho National Laboratories (INL), beta-tested by over 30 organizations and financed by an investment of over $1.5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
