APERIO Systems, the company providing the last line of defense for protecting industrial control systems and increasing resilience against cyberattacks, today announced that it was selected to participate in the Free Electrons 2017 Cohort as one of the world’s most innovative energy startups. An alliance of eight international utilities, the Free Electrons global energy startup accelerator program, is committed to transforming the energy market with next-generation ideas. APERIO Systems was one of 12 companies (and the only cybersecurity company) selected from over 450 applications across 51 countries.
