Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are essential to operating today’s enterprises, but the proliferation and growing complexity of these assets has created a security blind spot for today’s security leaders across all industries.

In this Market Guide for CPS Protection Platforms, Gartner states that CSP protection platforms “leverage knowledge of industrial protocols, operational/production network packets or traffic metadata, and physical process asset behavior to discover, categorize, map, and protect CPS in production or mission-critical environments outside of enterprise IT environments.”

“As threats multiply, a once generic operational technology security market is rapidly evolving into distinct categories. Cyber-physical systems protection platforms that discover and protect assets in production or mission-critical environments are emerging as a leading market category.”

We believe, Ordr is ideal for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) protection because we:

  • Provide a real-time asset inventory of all connected devices and configuration items in the CPS environment.
  • Use rich device profiles and threat intelligence to baseline device behavior and map all CPS communications patterns.
  • Automate dynamic policy creation and enforcement to only allow “sanctioned communications” for devices.
  • Continuously monitor devices for risks, including retroactive analysis, to identify assets with known vulnerabilities/exploits, manufacturer recalls, and weak ciphers and certificates.

Ordr’s feature set addresses the unique needs of CPS security, and the Gartner Market Guide for CPS Protection names Ordr as a Representative Vendor in the category.
