Indegy, a leader in industrial cyber security, today announced it has received patent #10,261,489 from the United States Patent & Trademark Office for software technology that detects misconfigurations and hostile attacks in industrial control networks using active querying.
The patented invention is part of the Indegy Industrial Cybersecurity Suite, which is the first product to provide active and passive detection of threats in industrial control system (ICS) based environments.
Industrial Control Systems use Programmable Controllers (PLC and DCS) to manage processes. Any changes to the firmware, application logic or configuration parameters of a controller, whether caused by human error or intentionally by a hostile attacker, can result in potentially life threatening physical and environmental damage.
