Xage, the zero trust real-world security company, was recently cited as a Representative Vendor among CPS Protection Platforms in Gartner 2022 Innovation Insight for Cyber-Physical Systems Protection Platforms report. The company was also named in Gartner 2022 Market Guide for Operational Technology Security.
“As organizations connect operational or mission-critical systems, or deploy automation and digital transformation technology, they create cyber-physical systems (CPS) that security and risk management leaders must accommodate. Enter cyber-physical systems protection platforms — new solutions for a new security reality,” said Gartner analysts Katell Thielemann. “The changing technology and threat landscape is forcing security and risk management leaders to think about security differently when it comes to CPS. A new discipline of CPS asset-centric security is evolving, anchored by a new set of CPS protection platform vendors.”
Asset-centric security allows operators to move beyond the old network-centric security model – aiming to keep hackers off the network – to a modern security architecture that protects access to each asset individually regardless of who has network-level presence. In fact, Gartner predicts that through 2025, 70% of companies will deploy CPS protection platforms as the first step in their asset-centric journey.
“An asset-centric approach to access management – implementing strong credentials, password rotation, multi-factor authentication (MFA) and asset-by-asset access control – is critical to protect assets from attack. “Xage has seen in our customer deployments how an asset-centric security approach enables strong zero trust protection which can be achieved without ripping and replacing existing systems and infrastructure.”
Duncan Greatwood, CEO of Xage
Xage helps operators protect their assets using an identity-centric, asset-centric zero trust architecture.
