Mansfield, MA Industrial Defender Inc. (previously known as Verano, Inc.) won recognition from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its Industrial Defender risk mitigation technology suite on July 17, 2007 (U.S. Patent No. 7,246,156). The platform mitigates increased cyber security threats, protects critical infrastructures, and meets regulatory compliance for organizations in the power, energy, transportation, water and chemical industries.

The company describes “the defense in depth” solution as the first and only fully integrated cyber risk solution, covering all seven layers of the process control environment– from perimeter protection and gateway virus filtering to network/host intrusion detection and security event management. The protection goes beyond solutions that stop at the enterprise firewall or host system. The end-to-end protection enables organizations to avoid engagements with multiple security vendors and point solutions. According to Industrial Defender CEO Brian Ahern, the company “protects critical infrastructures and process control systems from the vulnerability of growing cyber security threats by individuals bent on disruption and destruction, as well as from human error.”

Recently introduced, Version 3.0 of the technology adds support for third-party firewalls, intrusion detection for power substations and increased product scalability.
