Every second, another 127 devices connect to the Internet. That’s 328 million “things” per month. By 2025, we’ll see 75 billion connected devices. Our objective is to give our customers peace of mind in knowing that they can effectively manage and secure this explosive growth of connected devices in their environment.

We’re focused on making connected device security simple through our zero touch agentless deployment, one common platform for multiple stakeholders, and automation of policies to secure devices. With Ordr, you will see exactly what’s connected to the network, in real time, all the time. You will know what’s vulnerable, what’s behaving maliciously and why. You can then automate policies and response to secure any connected device, enforced on any networking and security infrastructure.

See. Know. Secure, every connected device everywhere. We make the complex problem of securing every connected device  — from traditional IT devices to newer and more vulnerable IoT, IoMT or OT — simple.
