The Industrial Internet, a term coined by GE, refers to the integration of complex physical machinery with networked sensors and software to boost productivity in the industrial sector. The emergence of new security vulnerabilities in the Industrial Internet are creating a need for solutions like ThetaRay, which can protect organizations against hidden cyber threats and operational risks.
GE's Predix platform for the Industrial Internet enables developers to create applications that connect to industrial assets to collect and analyze data - delivering real-time insights for optimizing industrial infrastructure and operations. Predix employs a microservices-based delivery model for single-function services created by developers and third parties such as ThetaRay.
ThetaRay's Predix offering is one of the first third-party microservices to be made available. Its unique anomaly detection offering protects industrial companies against external threats such as unknown zero-day malware, targeted APT attacks, and sophisticated state-sponsored cybersecurity attacks, as well as operational risks like equipment failure and unplanned downtime. The ThetaRay solution supports every aspect of anomaly detection – from data processing and storage to event investigation and management – with unmatched accuracy and the lowest false positive rates in the industry.
ThetaRay's solution requires no knowledge of related business processes and can be customized for a wide range of industries and use cases.
