Gartner includes Positive Technologies' MaxPatrol, PT Industrial Security Incident
Manager, and PT SS7 Attack Discovery in its Market Guide for Operational Technology
Positive Technologies, a leading global provider of enterprise security solutions for
vulnerability and compliance management, incident and threat analysis, and application
protection, confirms it has been included in the Gartner Market Guide for Operational
Technology (OT) for the first time. Security decision makers can use Gartner's research
to identify and evaluate OT security products.
Speaking about the report, Dan Tara, VP of Sales at Positive Technologies explained,
"Organizations face a daily struggle to comprehend the complex web of legacy and
emerging infrastructure and devices used within industrial control systems. Historically,
operational technology products were used to monitor how these systems and devices
performed, identify weaknesses, and make adjustments where necessary. However,
cybersecurity wasn't always foremost with Operational Technology products, and so
they were inadequate to the task. An increasing frequency of attacks, with complex
infrastructure that continues to evolve beyond the direct control of the IT team,
means organizations need to not only determine what is being used, but its security
posture. We're thrilled to have Gartner recognize and include Positive Technologies in
its research into Operation Technology, confirming our solutions' ability to help with
tackling this challenge."
In its report, Gartner predicts that spending on OT security will double by 2020, due
to increasing attacks on critical industrial infrastructure and subsequent regulatory
Gartner describes Positive Technologies' MaxPatrol as an assessment product for
OT networks; PT Industrial Security Incident Manager (PT ISIM) as an OT incident
monitoring and analysis component; and PT SS7 Attack Discovery (PT SS7 AD) as a
component that provides anomaly detection and response over SS7 networks.
With features not found in other solutions, Positive Technologies' MaxPatrol, PT Industrial
Security Incident Manager, and PT SS7 Attack Discovery provide a comprehensive
and modern answer to today's operational technology security challenges. Working
seamlessly across the entire business, organizations can use Positive Technologies'
solutions to identify and address vulnerabilities and configuration defects within
applications, databases, networks, and industrial control systems to strengthen the
organization's security posture and prevent cybercriminals finding a way in.
