INDUSTRIAL DEFENDER SHIPS AUTOMATION SYSTEMS MANAGER, A UNIFIED SECURITY, COMPLIANCE AND CHANGE MANAGEMENT SOLUTION
Automation Systems Manager Sails Through Pilots, QA, and Into Production at Top Fortune 500 Utility and Chemical Organizations
Foxborough, MA, March 19, 2012 - Industrial Defender, the global leader in security and compliance management for automation systems, today announced the first customer shipments of its Automation Systems Manager (ASM) solution. ASM is the first unified solution for security, compliance and change management specifically designed for industrial control and automation systems. Customer deployments of the ASM solution have moved rapidly from pilot to QA and into production among Industrial Defender's Fortune 500 clients.
"Industrial Defender has delivered early deployment successes of our ASM solution to very large customers in the utilities and chemical sectors," said Brian Ahern, CEO of Industrial Defender. "It's clear from the speed of these installations that the need to automate the management of complex control system environments is a real imperative for organizations. In fact, one customer plans a fleet-wide standardization on ASM across all their power generation assets. Critical infrastructure providers urgently want to enhance security, automate compliance reporting, and effectively manage configuration changes within their environments. Early feedback from our customers confirms that ASM offers the solution to this challenge."
With nearly ten years focused specifically on industrial control systems security and operations, Industrial Defender has the expertise to build and deploy solutions that monitor, manage and protect the unique environments and endpoints within critical infrastructure operations. ASM is the first unified platform that integrates asset management, event management, configuration change management, policy compliance, endpoint security, and reporting into one effective solution. Customers using ASM are able to improve operational effectiveness and enhance security by reducing the manual tasks associated with change management and compliance activities, while significantly diminishing security vulnerabilities. By implementing the ASM solution, customers can enhance business efficiency and reduce operational costs while significantly reducing the risk of unplanned outages.
Experts agree. In a recent product review of ASM, Digital Bond's Dale Peterson, a respected expert on SCADA security and distributed control systems concluded, "Asset owners who have handled the SCADASEC 101 and are looking to improve their security posture further should take a look at this product, particularly if they have ICS products."
