PAS, Part of Hexagon, Applauded by Frost & Sullivan for Protecting and Securing Operational Technology
14 December 2021
SAN ANTONIO, TX, Dec. 14, 2021 – Based on the findings of its recent analysis of the global critical national infrastructure cybersecurity market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes PAS, part of Hexagon, with the 2021 Global Company of the Year Award for critical national infrastructure cybersecurity. The company’s sophisticated cybersecurity technology enables organizations to prevent, detect, and remediate cyber threats; thus, allowing clients to increase safety and productivity significantly. Furthermore, the platform offers comprehensive inventory management, vulnerability management, risk analytics, compliance management, and backup and recovery.
The PAS Cyber Integrity platform has comprehensive cybersecurity features to help clients overcome the challenges linked to manual asset discovery and inventory management processes. Manual processes are prone to human error, offer outdated information, waste the security team’s time, and devour an organization’s budget. Furthermore, many Industrial Internet of Things cybersecurity solutions cannot detect and prevent all the endpoints in an organization’s environment due to infrequent system scans and device changes, such as onboarding and off-boarding. The platform’s automated inventory management feature discovers all Level 0 to Level 3.5 devices on an organization’s network in real-time, decreasing the security team’s manual inventory efforts by up to 90%. The solution also detects information technology and operational technology configuration data that competing platforms often miss, such as input/output cards and firmware updates.
Danielle Vanzant, an industrial analyst for Frost & Sullivan, stated, “PAS Cyber Integrity’s vulnerability management feature provides best-in-class network visibility by automatically detecting vulnerabilities and displaying them by risk severity level. The solution offers real-time comprehensive situational awareness and actionable intelligence, allowing security operators to remediate issues rapidly.”
The company works closely with clients to design technologies and customize its solutions to fit customers’ needs and requests. It develops its product roadmap based directly on client feedback. PAS offers training courses instructed by highly experienced industry professionals. It also provides subscription-based online training videos and cost-free resources, including blogs, webinars, and white papers. The top-notch industrial solution’s sophisticated cybersecurity technology also:
- Uses automated closed-loop patch management that enables security teams to assess patches before deployment to ensure the security resiliency and operability with the entire ecosystem, even across multiple sites.
- Displays vulnerabilities in an easy-to-read format, enabling a layperson to understand the organization’s security hygiene.
- Allows users to view real-time and historical data, enabling security teams and C-suite executives to view how their organization’s security posture changes over time.
“The company’s automated solution delivers revolutionary critical national infrastructure cybersecurity and compliance audit report generation, enabling security personnel to focus on more cognition-intense responsibilities,” Tara Semon, Best Practices Research Team Leader for Frost & Sullivan, noted. “Frost & Sullivan is recognizing PAS, part of Hexagon, as the 2021 Company of the Year in CNI cybersecurity due to the innovative, powerful capabilities of its PAS Cyber Integrity platform.”
