CyberX, the IIoT and industrial control system (ICS) security company, announced yesterday that it whas been awarded a patent (US Patent 10, 015 188) by the US Patent and Trademark Office for its innovative, ICS-aware risk analytics and machine learning technology.
As industrial and critical infrastructure organisations look to safeguard their IIoT and ICS networks from cyberattacks that can result in costly production downtime, catastrophic safety failures, and environmental incidents, they are looking for new ways to rapidly detect and respond to advanced zero-day threats that can easily bypass conventional perimeter and endpoint security solutions.
The CyberX patent covers unique methods and systems for learning ICS network behaviour and accurately identifying anomalous activities. It relies on a new and innovative way of using finite-state machine (FSM) modelling techniques to analyse ICS environments and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. CyberX is the only ICS security company to have been awarded a patent for its threat detection analytics, which are embedded in its industrial cybersecurity platform that has been commercially available since early 2015.
“CyberX was founded in 2013 with the mission of reducing ICS risk for industrial and critical infrastructure organizations,” said Omer Schneider, CEO and co-founder of CyberX. “Our technology is now safeguarding production operations for some of the world’s largest and most complex organizations, across all industry sectors worldwide. This patent is further recognition that we’re delivering highly differentiated technology to support our customers’ business objectives.”
“Rising threats to IIoT and ICS environments demonstrate that threat actors such as nation-states and cybercriminals are not standing still in the cyber arms race,” said Nir Giller, CyberX CTO, EMEA GM and co-founder. “We’re committed to hiring the best and brightest people to continue our groundbreaking innovation in this domain.”
