ATLANTA (July 17, 2017) -- NexDefense, a global leader for industrial IoT (IIoT) environments and cybersecurity, today announced the next evolution of its flagship Sophia platform, which is now branded as the Integrity™ product suite.
Integrity 3.2, the first release under the Integrity name, empowers industrial control system operators with real-time visibility and awareness needed to improve system and process integrity, as well as ensure cyber resiliency. The software, available now, helps meet today’s industrial IoT and industrial cybersecurity challenges by establishing a baseline of normal control system network activities, continuously monitoring assets and communications, and identifying system design issues, misconfigurations, system failures, abnormal or malicious activities that could negatively impact production or safety.
Integrity™ 3.2 extends the powerful capabilities enabled in 3.1, while delivering capabilities that uniquely positions NexDefense to solve tangible customer challenges today like no other vendor in the industry. Highlights include:
“Very little visibility into ICS communications or assets exists, especially in a holistic way, and operators have scant knowledge of what is normal and what is abnormal. The excess complexity and lack of visibility exposes operators to camouflaged risks,” noted Mike Assante, co-founder and chief security strategist for NexDefense. Consequently, Integrity combines asset inventory with start-of-the-art network visualization to provide deep visibility, operational awareness, and context to how these assets and networks operate on a daily basis.
“From a solution perspective, we have aligned our goals directly with our customers. Integrity achieves visibility and awareness into their mission critical networks, in order to ultimately improve their production and safety,” said Matt Morris, vice president of strategy and products for NexDefense. “The industry has been singularly focused on cybersecurity threats instead of being focused on a broader set of risks impacting production and safety. Integrity uniquely solves for the broader set of risks, enabling remediation and an improved bottom line.”
NexDefense empowers industrial control system operators with the real-time knowledge needed to improve system and process integrity, and ensure cyber resilience. The 2016 Entrepreneurial Award Winner, NexDefense has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan and others as the market leading Industrial IoT and industrial cyber security solution, with deployments across mission critical networks in utilities, oil and gas, defense, manufacturing, water/ wastewater, pharmaceuticals and more.
