Ordr announces that it has experienced a significant increase in industry demand for its connected device security platform.

Ordr enables security and IT teams to discover and secure every connected asset across their whole organization—from laptops and traditional IT equipment, to especially vulnerable Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), Operational Technology (OT), and Cyber-Physical Systems.

“With industries as diverse as healthcare, manufacturing, financial services, smart cities, government and higher education coming to depend on connected devices to conduct their daily operations, it is no surprise that security has become a top priority,” said Jim Hyman, CEO of Ordr. “Organizations need the granular visibility that Ordr delivers, enabling teams to see what devices are connecting to their network, where they are connected, and what they’re doing when connected. It’s only with this real-time context that organizations can accurately identify their complete attack surface and mitigate risks via automated policies.”

Ordr’s AI-powered platform gives organizations a single source of truth for every connected device, revealing the entire attack surface, including vulnerabilities, exploits and anomalies. With the digital transformation-driven expansion of devices across industries, the number of connections that must be secured by an organization is always increasing. In industries such as healthcare and manufacturing, connected devices have a long lifecycle, often outliving the operating system and security software installed on it and creating an instant security issue, according to Ordr.

As a result, it has become harder and harder for resource-constrained IT and security teams to ensure they have a full understanding of their attack surface – and for them to have the proper policies in place to mitigate those situations. The visibility and control Ordr offers can help reduce risks, and decrease incident response by hours, particularly when context is used to enrich CMDB, SIEMs, XDRs and security operations tools.

“Enterprises today are embracing Zero Trust as a modern cybersecurity strategy, but extending it to connected devices including IT, IoT, IoMT and OT can be increasingly challenging,” says Mark Grassmann, Cybersecurity Practice Principal, Alchemy Technology Group. “We’ve been seeing great momentum bringing together our extensive cybersecurity experience with Ordr’s technology to discover every asset in the network, identify the attack surface, and automate the creation of segmentation policies to secure them.”
