This has been a rewarding week here at Industrial Defender.

In many ways, it’s the culmination of nearly a decade of thought leadership and innovation in the industrial control systems market. From SCADA control to security,
compliance and now change management, this company has a decade-long commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our market. So, I felt great pride and satisfaction when Pike Research this week ranked Industrial Defender #1 in Smart Grid security. Our dedication to addressing the critical security threats our customers face was recognized. It is the spirit of innovation and customer focus that earned us
the leadership position in Smart Grid security that was behind our announcement
this week of Automation Systems Manager (ASM). It provides the first unified approach to security, compliance, and change management for industrial control systems.

Our customers have been clear about their needs to reduce unplanned outages and lower costs across all their operational platforms. Our ASM solution answers that need. We’ve created one integrated solution that includes asset management, event management, configuration change management, policy compliance, endpoint security, and reporting in one powerful offering. ASM improves operational effectiveness and enhances security by reducing the manual tasks associated with change management and compliance activities, while significantly diminishing security vulnerabilities. To learn more about ASM, visit, or see it live at the SANS SCADA and Process Control Summit in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

So the market has spoken; we’ve earned industry recognition and introduced ASM. Now we begin our journey into the next decade of innovation and investment in automation systems management solutions. I hope you will join us for the ride.
