Gartner® Report: Innovation Insight for Cyber-Physical Systems Protection Platforms

According to Gartner “A new discipline of cyber-physical systems (CPS) asset-centric security is evolving, anchored by a new set of CPS protection platform vendors”  

Gartner states that security by obscurity mindset is no longer acceptable for operational security as ransomware attacks now bring entire plants or pipelines down. And traditional IT security tools do not work in environments with unique protocols where safety and resilience are paramount. 

Key findings highlighted in this report: 

  • “The changing technology and threat landscape is forcing security and risk management leaders to think about security differently when it comes to cyber-physical systems. 
  • Beyond “security by obscurity” and network-centric security based on firewalls and segmentation, an asset-centric view of CPS security is emerging.
  • This new view is enabled by a new type of security solution that starts with asset discovery and wraps additional security features around these assets. This is all deployed in a platform environment that can feed other enterprise security tools.”
