Veracity Industrial Networks was founded on the belief that networking is a critical component of any business. With growing cybersecurity concerns throughout the critical infrastructure space, the Veracity leadership team seized a unique opportunity to converge best practices from both the IT and OT areas to develop an OT-optimized solution. It’s not uncommon for OT networks to have a mix of legacy and modern devices, various network protocols, and a mix of switch vendors. Those sometimes-archaic solutions are managing the world’s most demanding, complex applications in industries like energy, food processing, water/wastewater, electric power distribution, the department of defense, and more.

The vision for Veracity is to offer industrial control system (ICS) network solutions that address reliability, visibility, data traffic control, and deny-by-default security following IT best practices. The experienced executive team and board members have adapted the proven IT software defined networking (SDN) framework to address the real-time needs of OT networks. The outcome reduces the OT network attack surface by designing micro-segmentation into the network architecture.

Veracity works with leading go-to-market technology partners to assess, implement, and manage comprehensive ICS network solutions. From network consolidation to inherent cybersecurity defenses, the Veracity solution provides enterprise-class security through a centralized command center customized for OT network visibility and management.
