HAIFA, Israel, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
APERIO Systems, the company providing the last line of defense for protecting industrial control systems and increasing resilience against cyberattacks, today announced that it has been named a Gartner Cool Vendor in Digitalization Through Industrie 4.0, 2017 report.
According to the Gartner Cool Vendor Report, "Industrie 4.0 Cool Vendors offer significant advantages over common industry practices."
APERIO Systems' proprietary Data Forgery Protection™ (DFP) technology detects artificial manipulations of industrial process data in real time to safeguard industrial control systems, provide true state awareness, and allow operational resilience and quick and effective remediation without disruption to business.
Both internal and external attackers can penetrate the most critical infrastructures, causing severe and long lasting damage. In order to do so, they must hide their malicious activity and deceive plant operators by forging the reported values of critical devices - remaining undetected and preventing timely corrective action. APERIO Systems' Data Forgery Protection technology immediately exposes forged system readings to safeguard critical control systems and allow quick and effective remediation.
"We believe APERIO Systems' selection as a Gartner Cool Vendor recognizes the importance of new and effective cybersecurity approaches to stop the exponentially growing global threat against the critical infrastructure," said Michael Shalyt, CEO, APERIO Systems. "With APERIO Systems' Data Forgery Protection technology, cybercriminals infiltrating industrial critical control systems and manipulating data will be detected and stopped, preventing a potentially catastrophic event."
