Industrial Defender Named Hot Company in OT Vulnerability Management by Cyber Defense Magazine in the Global InfoSec Awards

Industrial Defender has received the “Hot Company in Operational Technology Vulnerability Management” award from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM).

Foxborough, MA, May 17, 2021 Industrial Defender, an operational technology (OT) security pioneer, announced that it has received the “Hot Company in Operational Technology Vulnerability Management” award from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine. For this awards program, CDM seeks out next-generation players with new, unique technologies, rather than the ones with the most customers or money in the bank. The judges are CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who voted based on their independent review of each company’s submission.

“Orchestrating OEM vulnerability and patch management in OT environments is a real pain point for industrial companies,” said Jim Crowley, CEO of Industrial Defender. “Our team has worked hard to create an innovative solution to this problem, and we’re thrilled that this panel of leading cybersecurity experts from around the globe has recognized our efforts.”

“Industrial Defender embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

All winners of the 9th Annual Global InfoSec Awards will be announced today at RSAC 2021. View the complete list of award winners here:
