AUBURN HILLS, Mich., May 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexteer Automotive, a leader in intuitive motion control, has been named an honoree of a 2021 CSO50 Award from IDG's CSO. This honor is awarded to a select group of organizations that have implemented security projects and initiatives demonstrating outstanding business value and thought leadership.
Nexteer's winning project, NEXTINTRUST, is a new solution for Internet of Things (IoT), Operational Technologies (OT) and asset visibility and security. NEXTINTRUST provides complete visibility into every connected device at Nexteer, which allows for understanding of the risks they bring and enables appropriate policies to secure them.
"Nexteer is honored to be recognized by IDG's CSO for our innovative security architecture," said Mike Rogers, Executive Director and Chief Information Officer (CIO), Nexteer Automotive. "As Operational Technologies and Internet of Things networks converge, this leads to significant changes in network connectivity between systems that were traditionally 'air gapped.' While this provides benefits like optimizing uptime and improving competitive advantage, it also introduces new security challenges. The NEXTINTRUST program enables us to overcome these challenges by leveraging identity, integration and insights across a layered security architecture for enacting proactive control strategies."
"The disruptive events of 2020 – combined with sophisticated and far-reaching attacks – brought new challenges and costs to organizations, their security leaders and business outcomes," said Amy Bennett, executive editor of CSO. "Our annual CSO50 Awards recognize security teams that bring innovation and thought leadership to solving for the many risks their organizations continue to face. This year's class of CSO50 winners represent an elite group of risk and security thought leaders, and we are pleased to give them the recognition they deserve."
Nexteer will be formally recognized for this award at the CSO50 Conference + Awards held on November 16-18, 2021.
