HAIFA, Israel, February 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
APERIO Systems, the company providing the last line of defense for protecting industrial control systems against cyberattacks, announced today that it was recognized as the "Hot Company" in ICS/SCADA security winner of the Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Award. APERIO Systems was honored for pioneering Data Forgery ProtectionTM (DFP) for critical infrastructure. The company will be participating in the RSA Conference in San Francisco, CA, this week.
The prestigious Cyber Defense Magazine Award gives recognition to information security companies that provide unique value. Each submission is judged by security professionals who have certification such as CISSP, FMDHS, or CEH - and the evaluation process is based on an independent review of each company's materials and other market variables.
"We're delighted to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that's why APERIO Systems has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players," said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
This honor comes on the heels of several other distinctions. Earlier this month, APERIO Systems was selected as the most innovative startup at CyberTech TLV. In September, the company won Enel's Cybersecurity Hackathon and was chosen as the first company to work in Enel Group's new Innovation Hub at SOSA in Tel Aviv. APERIO Systems was also selected as a winner in the 2016 Government Security News (GSN) Awards.
APERIO Systems is already working with several sites across EMEA. Its Data Forgery Protection technology detects artificial manipulations of industrial process data, allowing operators to take real-time corrective action - and providing the last line of defense in protecting SCADA systems against both insider and external threats.
"When attackers breach a system, in order to avoid detection and cause serious damage, they must falsify operational data to blind the operators and protection mechanisms," said Yevgeni Nogin, CEO, APERIO Systems. "APERIO Systems operates like a polygraph for process data - and this enables unprecedented resilience and operational integrity for critical infrastructures."
