Industrial Defender and FoxGuard Solutions Team Up to Transform Patch and Vulnerability Management for OT Security Teams

This partnership combines Industrial Defender’s depth and breadth of asset data collection with FoxGuard’s ability to report, acquire, validate and deploy vendor-approved patch and vulnerability information.

Foxborough, MA, November 19, 2020Industrial Defender and FoxGuard Solutions, two operational technology (OT) security pioneers, announced a new partnership today that will transform patch and vulnerability management for critical infrastructure companies. Keeping up with emerging critical vulnerabilities in industrial control systems (ICS) is a major challenge. With this joint solution, security teams can make smarter patching decisions with simple visualizations of which assets are missing vendor-approved patches or have open vulnerabilities in one place.

“Our collaboration with FoxGuard Solutions is going to revolutionize patch and vulnerability management for ICS environments,” says Jim Crowley, CEO at Industrial Defender. “We are taking what was once a complex, manual task and simplifying it so that OT security teams can make timely, informed decisions about emerging threats.”

“The partnership between FoxGuard and Industrial Defender is going to transform the frontlines of cybersecurity for industrial control systems,” says Michael Trautman, CTO & VP CyberSecurity at FoxGuard Solutions. “The ability to use simple visualizations of assets to make informed decisions, based on patch intelligence and security vulnerabilities, will arm those standing post.”
