Ordr’s AI-powered platform gives organizations a single source of truth for every connected device, revealing the entire attack surface, including vulnerabilities, exploits and anomalies. With the digital transformation-driven expansion of devices across industries, the number of connections that must be secured by an organization increases dramatically every day. In addition, in industries such as healthcare and manufacturing, connected devices have a long lifecycle, often outliving the operating system and security software installed on it and creating an instant security issue.

“Enterprises today are embracing Zero Trust as a modern cybersecurity strategy, but extending it to connected devices including IT, IoT, IoMT and OT can be increasingly challenging. We’ve been seeing great momentum bringing together our extensive cybersecurity experience with  Ordr’s technology to discover every asset in the network, identify the attack surface, and automate the creation of segmentation policies to secure them. We look forward to our continued partnership with Ordr to further strengthen our customers’ security posture,” said Mark Grassmann, Cybersecurity Practice Principal, Alchemy Technology Group.

It has become harder and harder for resource-constrained IT and security teams to ensure they have a full understanding of their attack surface – and for them to have the proper policies in place to mitigate those situations. The visibility and control Ordr brings is helping reduce risks, and decrease incident response by hours, particularly when context is used to enrich CMDB, SIEMs, XDRs and security operations tools.

Ordr’s industry momentum includes:

“We work with the world’s largest and top ranked healthcare organizations, and are dedicated to delivering the industry’s most powerful medical device security platform to protect their patients and patient data,” said Jim Hyman, CEO at Ordr. “All the effort and expertise we put into building a platform with the intelligence and automation necessary to achieve ‘whole hospital’ security is equally focused on meeting our customers’ high expectations. As shared in the KLAS report, it is rewarding to see that customers are delighted with our ability to bring HTM and cybersecurity teams together to sustain more efficient HTM operations, address Zero Trust initiatives, and protect against advanced threats.”

When asked about Ordr, a customer CIO shared that:

“Meeting our IoT security needs is a pretty big thing, but the Ordr Platform helps us manage our other security as well as validation with our other security systems. When we find some sort of vulnerability, Ordr comes up with a solution for monitoring that type of traffic on top of our other security. They are a great partner in layered security. Recently, Ordr integrated their system with one of our partners’ systems, and that integration allows us to do segmentation in a much more automated fashion than we would have been able to do in the past. While that is a requirement for more than just IoT security, it is a value add that was a panacea for a long time and is now a reality. Without Ordr’s Platform, we would have had a huge gap in our visibility. It has been a great product for us.”

Because all connected devices in a medical facility are critical, a “whole hospital approach” to security is necessary in order to fully understand and protect the ever-expanding attack surface. Ordr empowers HTM and security teams with the insight, context, and tools needed to protect all IoT, IoMT, operational technology (OT), and traditional IT systems. Ordr helps medical facilities protect against ransomware and zero-day attacks by baselining device behavior and identifying any devices that are behaving anomalously. Incident response efforts are accelerated by immediately identifying compromised devices and dynamically creating and applying security policies. In addition, the platform supports Zero Trust segmentation efforts by enabling only required device communications from those devices already or likely to be impacted

  • “Ordr is one of our favorite vendors, and they enable a practical approach to zero trust security. They do a wonderful job of helping us secure our medical devices, and they are a pleasure to work with. They are putting a lot of new features into their product, and they are going beyond what we originally purchased them for to the extent that we might actually be able to get rid of one of our other network monitoring products.” CIO (November 2022)
  • “Ordr comes out with new technology that blows me away all the time. They just keep adding functionality. Ordr’s product is the only product I can ever remember. When I am talking to peers or companies that [I] do work with, I tell them they need to check out Ordr’s platform.” Director (October 2022)
  • “The biggest thing I like is that we can use the information gathered by the system to implement tangible policies for other things, such as my firewall. That is the true value of being able to look at devices and see what they are. The product allows me to write access control list policies around entire groups of devices, and that makes us more secure. The information in the product is outstanding, but the opportunity to translate that information into actionable security policies is the big selling point of the product for us.” Director (October 2022) 
  • “Ordr is truly exceptional. I have regular calls with their team, and one of the talking points on every agenda is the vendor’s road map. I do lots of check-in calls with vendors on a variety of products, and Ordr is the vendor that is the clearest with their road map.” Director (October 2022)
  • “Ordr has an incredible ability to integrate their solution with my firewall and endpoint protection software. The integration between Ordr’s platform and my other security platforms is really high, whether Ordr’s product is integrating with an IoT device or simply a Windows workstation sitting on someone’s desk. The level of integration that the product has is ridiculous.” Director (October 2022) 
  • “The product has really helped me discriminate between the devices on my network; I can tell whether something is a PC as opposed to an infusion pump or a pulse oximeter. That is very helpful for specific healthcare IoT purposes. The system has changed our workflow.” Director (October 2022) 
  • “Our implementation with Ordr was incredibly smooth. Ordr killed it. I don’t have enough good things to say about Ordr. I don’t know whether I have ever been as satisfied with another implementation as I was with Ordr’s implementation.” Director (October 2022)

The Ordr “whole hospital approach” secures all connected devices – IoT, IoMT, operational technology (OT), and traditional IT systems – that are critical to operations and patient care. With Ordr, HTM and security teams gain the insight and tools they need to identify risks such as devices with outdated operating systems, devices with vulnerabilities, and take action by applying segmentation to devices that can not be updated or otherwise secured.

Ordr recently published a Connected Device Security Healthcare Maturity Model to guide healthcare organizations on their journey to Zero Trust.
