Industrial Defender Ranked As Leader In Smart Grid Security By Independent Market Analyst

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

In a new report announced by independent market analyst firm, Ovum (News - Alert)©, Industrial Defender was rated as a market leader offering the most comprehensive solutions in Smart Grid security. The Company was ranked highly for its innovative technology solutions, deep understanding of the operational and business needs of utilities, and strong customer satisfaction in this market.

According to Ovum, "With high scores for market impact, customer satisfaction, and technology, and a focus on the utility industry, Industrial Defender is rated a leader in smart grid security. The vendor has an impressive array of technology capabilities, particularly in monitoring security and compliance for operational, non-IT components of the grid and in securing legacy SCADA systems. Industrial Defender's customer satisfaction scores demonstrate its appeal to utilities and its success in establishing strong relationships with its customers."

The recognition from Ovum adds to the Company's #1 ranking from Pike Research for its expertise in Smart Grid cyber security in a report published last year.
