Rand McNally Selects Industrial Defender to Secure Its Industrial Internet of Things

Industrial Defender will deliver comprehensive IIoT asset management and rapid threat detection for Rand McNally’s cyber-physical systems.

Foxborough, MA, March 10, 2021 Industrial Defender, a pioneer in operational technology (OT) security, today announced that Rand McNally has chosen their Automation Systems Manager® (ASM) platform as their IIoT cybersecurity solution. Rand McNally will layer the ASM into their enterprise security ecosystem, creating a Defense-in-Depth strategy to better protect its cyber-physical systems from threats. The ASM platform will provide the in-depth asset data the company needs to strengthen its overall corporate risk management strategy and also help the security team reduce the mean time to respond (MTTR) to a potential intrusion within their OT systems.

“Industrial Defender’s third layer of protection on Rand McNally’s corporate network helps ensure that we are effective in battling the growing threats of hacking and unwanted intrusions,” said Joseph Roark, Chairman of Rand McNally.

“With the recent uptick in cyber threat activity, manufacturing companies should be prioritizing cybersecurity, and Rand McNally is leading the pack,” said Jim Crowley, CEO at Industrial Defender, “We’re honored to partner with them to secure their Industrial Internet of Things.”

Rand McNally selected Industrial Defender because of its comprehensive asset management and threat detection capabilities, flexible service packages, proven pedigree in the OT security space, and commitment to supply chain security for their customers. Industrial Defender develops 100% of its software in the United States and enforces stringent cybersecurity standards for its development team.
