In today’s complex landscape and in a rapidly evolving digital world, intruders have moved passed simply the “visible attack.” Sophisticated attackers are exploiting any vulnerabilities, including operational technology. Once the attackers enter systems, they stay in to further compromise systems. Mission Secure, Inc. (MSi)’s innovative technology gives customers “military strength” cyber security visibility and protection 24/7 365 days a year.
MSi, a participating company in the Macquarie Capital Venture Studio, is a leading provider of control system cybersecurity to some of the world’s largest organizations in the defense, energy, and transportation industries. The MSi Platform takes operational technology cybersecurity to all levels of control systems while maintaining the benefits of a networked environment which can be deployed and managed by a non-IT professional. The results bring cyber visibility and end point protection to operational technology and control systems in an easy to deploy and manage platform.
