BOSTON, Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CyberX, the leading provider of cybersecurity solutions for the Industrial IoT (IIoT), has been awarded the ISA Award for Excellence in Corporate Technical Innovation, for developing an innovative solution for real-time detection and alerts when operational networks are at risk. Highlighted at ISA's Annual Honors & Awards Gala, CyberX was the only technology company to be honored.
The critical infrastructure of a manufacturing plant stands at the core of its productivity, operations and safety. Any successful attempt to impact these three essential pillars can have a devastating effect on the manufacturing process and the plant's existence.
"The Excellence in Corporate Technical Innovation award recognizes the company whose contributions and innovations have enhanced social value. CyberX has been selected to receive this award for its outstanding achievements and contributions to the automation community," said James W. Keaveney, ISA President.
"We are honored to receive this award and to see that industry leaders realize the importance of security in the automation and manufacturing worlds and place a spotlight on it," said Omer Schneider, CEO at CyberX. "Digitizing a manufacturing plant by embracing connectivity and IIoT technologies introduces previously unseen threats into operational networks, making them more vulnerable than ever."
Disruption to operations and downtime are measured in dollars. Knowing about a disruption ad-hoc, after the damage is done, with no ability to prevent it and no real indication of what has caused it, is not a viable option. CyberX empowers continuity of operations and process integrity by providing full visibility and predictability for operational networks, detecting cyber threats and operational incidents in real-time. New automated security measures are required to ensure that productivity, operations and safety are not compromised.
CyberX VP Sales and Business Development, Mr. Jim Blaschke was proud to participate at the ISA Honors & Awards Gala and receive the award for CyberX.
