Viakoo Named a 2021 Gartner® Cool Vendor
November 2021 by Marc Jacob
Viakoo announced that it has been included in the list of Cool Vendors™ based on the September 2021 Gartner report titled “Cool Vendors in Cyber-Physical Systems Security: Novel Approaches Enter the Scene” by analysts Katell Thielemann, Ruggero Contu, and Wam Voster.
According to the report’s key findings, “Security and risk management (SRM) leaders who fail to expand their risk lens beyond IT-centric concerns will be blindsided when operational and mission-critical assets are disabled and they are blamed. Successful security approaches for CPS mirror the features and behaviors of the cyber-physical environments in which they operate.”
IoT systems provide an attack surface for bad actors to gain a foothold into critical operational devices, networks, applications, and sensitive organizational data across the enterprise. Currently serving and protecting some of the world’s largest multi-national organizations, the company’s flagship Viakoo Action Platform™ automatically indexes and assesses IoT devices and implements security fixes via firmware, password enforcement, and zero-day certificates, at enterprise scale. The platform delivers remediation and repatriation of IoT devices, enabling them to join or rejoin as a full network citizen replete with an audit trail for governance and compliance.
