CounterCraft Named 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor

CounterCraft Named 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor

Gartner recently named CounterCraft a 2021 Cool Vendor in the Gartner Cyber-Physical Systems Security report. Being recognized as a Cool Vendor in this sector is a huge validation for the CounterCraft technology and team.

Gartner Cool Vendor Reports highlight interesting and innovative vendors, products, and services.

Cyber-physical systems are truly one of the most challenging systems to protect in the realm of cybersecurity. Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) are integration of computation, networking and physical process and are very complex, especially when several CPS need to be combined. That is the case for example in an airport or a large factory, where many machines have to work together to achieve a common goal.

The Gartner report, whose full title is Cyber-Physical Systems Security: Novel Approaches Enter the Scene Report, recognizes CounterCraft alongside a handful of other vendors as offering innovative solutions for this challenging security space. A Gartner Cool Vendor is chosen thanks to their innovation, impact, and also whether their product piques the interest of industry expert analysts. Gartner’s expertise puts them in a unique position to identify and evaluate up and coming vendors across markets, topics, and industries.

Cyber-physical systems, whether born out of OT/IT convergence,IoT, IIoT or smart cities/buildings/grids efforts, are found in sectors as diverse as aerospace, automotive, chemical processes, civil infrastructure, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, entertainment, and consumer appliances.

CounterCraft’s deception-powered solution delivers threat intelligence that is both timely and specific to an organization. The ability to simulate real environments and processes gives CounterCraft a unique edge when it comes to defending these infrastructures. Real systems are protected as the threat actor is pulled into deception environments to carry out their malicious actions. Deception environments can even be deployed externally, to great effect.

Watch our founders talking about the role deception can play in protecting operational technology. Find out more about boosting OT cybersecurity with deception in this blogpost, including three different scenarios in which we explain how deception can create credible environments and even simulate real processes in order to turn the tables on attackers.

Deception technology is maturing as a market, and some of the world’s most demanding customers are using it. The potential it has to identify attackers quickly and enable organizations to adjust their security response. Contact us for a demo.
