NEW YORK, March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
NextNine, a leader in Operation Technology (OT) cybersecurity management, today announced that it is a Gold Winner in the Best Security Products and Solutions for Manufacturing category, presented by Infosecurity Products Guide in their Global Excellence Awards.
The honor was awarded to NextNine for its OT Cybersecurity management solution for SCADA/ICS environments used by manufacturing and critical infrastructure enterprises.
The Global Excellence Awards recognize security and IT vendors with innovative products and solutions that set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies. More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world determined the 2016 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners.
"Manufacturing and critical infrastructure enterprise leaders are aware of the growing risk their operation technology faces and the effort required to comply with internal and external OT security policy and regulation," said Shmulik Aran, NextNine CEO. "We are proud to receive the Global Excellence Award and see it as recognition for our ability to provide OT owners with a cost effective solution to protect their distributed cyber assets."
Typically, managers in industrial environments need to focus on the yield, safety and reliability of production lines that utilize decades-old capital equipment. Securing these production tools using proprietary protocols and legacy technologies is costly, tedious and requires continuous effort.
The NextNine solution enables IT teams to manage their industrial cyber security in three automated steps:
- Deploy secure outbound connectivity between remote sites and the headquarters
- Create a full inventory through discovery of all assets and their configurations
- Secure operation of the assets (e.g. patching and antivirus updates, violation alarms, compliance reporting)
