    Solution

    Our OT cybersecurity and compliance platform helps security teams at electric utilities solve these challenges with safe, effective OT asset data collection and normalization techniques like assisted passive monitoring, agentless capabilities and native querying.

    “NERC auditors accepted Industrial Defender’s technology and threat mitigation strategies that we put into place, instead of requiring a full operating system upgrade they had earlier requested. This was an incredible cost savings and immediately justified the purchase above and beyond what we saved by not deploying multiple point solutions.”
