Veracity’s Industrial-Internet-of-Things Technology Included in Gartner’s List of Companies that Secure Critical Infrastructure
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. – September 6, 2017 — Veracity Industrial Networks, an award-winning developer of Industrial SDN-based technology for operational networks, today announced that the company was listed amongst a group of firms with products and technology designed for Operational Technology Security in a new report published by Gartner, Inc., a leading research and advisory firm. Veracity was included with 29 other companies in Gartner’s “Market Guide for Operational Technology Security” published August 17, 2017 by analysts Earl Perkins, Ruggero Contu, Saniye Burcu Alaybeyi.
According to Gartner, “Operational technology security products and services protect existing and
evolving OT for industrial and commercial critical infrastructure ecosystems. Security and risk management leaders should gauge the market state and direction, and understand the types of OT security providers in the market.”
“The report references a number of well-established companies that offer technology and products for Operational Technology Security and we are delighted to be named a Representative Vendor by Gartner and included in this list,” said Paul Myer, CEO, Veracity. “Veracity’s OT Network platform is designed to strengthen cybersecurity of industrial networks and provide operators with centralized visibility and control that makes securing critical systems less complex.”
Key findings in Gartner’s report include:
- Market offerings continue to deliver in key areas of anomaly and vulnerability detection, incident response, endpoint (including device) protection and access management, with many including asset discovery and tracking functions.
- While today’s solutions are more mature than previous versions, acceptance by clients remain moderate due to uneven levels of client maturity and the pace of information technology/operational technology (IT/OT) integration.
- In the professional services marketplace, IT security teams and managed security service providers are expanding skills and presence to compete with established specialist operational technology (OT) security services providers.
- The market for OT security functions with cloud-based delivery (and cloud versions of enterprise-based platforms) is nascent, but interest is continuing to grow.
