Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are essential to digital transformation but also introduce new levels of risk to organizations and create new challenges for security teams as more and more devices are connected to the network.

In this Innovation Insight report, Gartner describes the impact of CPS, how it is changing the technology and threat landscape and the impact to security and risk management leaders.

“As organizations connect operational or mission-critical systems, or deploy automation and digital transformation technology, they create cyber-physical systems that security and risk management leaders must securely manage. Enter CPS protection platforms — new solutions for a new security reality.”

The report highlights the emergence of an asset-centric view of CPS security enabled by a new type of security solution that starts with asset discovery and wraps additional security features around these assets. Ordr is among the examples of CPS protection platform vendors delivering this new type of solution with an asset-centric approach to security.

Ordr benefits for Cyber-Physical Systems

  • Gain an accurate view of your attack surface with automated asset discovery and classification
  • Uncover risk by identifying vulnerable devices, malicious communications, and active threats
  • Prioritize remediation and mitigation efforts with risk scores calculated for every asset
  • Accelerate incident response with dynamically created policy to stop malicious communications and protect device
  • Improve security with automated policy for NAC and Zero Trust segmentation
