Ordr Redefines IoMT and Enterprise IoT Security with Broader, Deeper Classification and Insights
Thursday, July 9, 2020

Enhancements in Ordr SCE 7.2 Give Enterprises Additional Capabilities to Manage and Secure Unprecedented Growth of Connected Devices

SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ordr, the leader in security for enterprise IoT and unmanaged devices, today announced new capabilities in the company's Systems Control Engine (SCE) 7.2 software. This release further extends IoT and unmanaged device visibility and classification, enabling organizations to monitor for risks and proactively strengthen infrastructure via automated segmentation policy generation and enforcement. Enhanced analytics also provide organizations with insights into device utilization to inform budgetary and maintenance decisions, allowing for better management of capital resources. The 7.2 release also addresses and mitigates risks from Ripple20 vulnerabilities.

IDC predicts that there will be 41.5 billion connected IoT devices by 2025. The diversity of IP-enabled devices includes everything from vending machines and printers, to mission-critical MRI machines and security cameras. However, these devices can be difficult to secure as they often run old or obsolete operating systems, cannot support corporate endpoint security agents, or cannot be taken offline to be patched. Device ownership and utility is split among diverse groups, which exacerbates this problem as most organizations are not aware of all of the devices connected to the network. These challenges underscore the need for a platform that brings together IT, Security, and IoT Operational owners.

"With this latest version of the Ordr Systems Control Engine, we are further delivering on our promise of providing the most comprehensive enterprise IoT security platform in the market," said Gnanaprakasam Pandian, co-founder and Chief Product Officer, Ordr. "We've expanded our device classification capabilities, enriched our device insights, and extended our integrations. Networking teams, security teams, lines of business owners, facilities teams, and IoT device owners can standardize on the Ordr platform while addressing specific IoT device security needs."

Ordr SCE discovers every connected device, maps communications patterns, and assesses risks. Based on sanctioned device communications patterns, segmentation policies can be created and enforced across networking and security infrastructure to isolate mission-critical devices - those that share protected confidential information or run vulnerable operating systems. Ordr SCE allows for an agentless deployment, which can be delivered at scale via the cloud or as an on-premise solution.

"Vulnerabilities such as the recently discovered Ripple20 reinforce the challenges organizations face with connected IoT and OT devices. In response, we've incorporated a Ripple20 active scanner into the Ordr SCE to help organizations accurately identify, or verify, if a device is at risk. We can also detect exploits of Ripple20 and isolate impacted devices," said Jeff Horne, CSO, Ordr. "These continuing threats validate the need for proactive protection based on rich visibility into the behavior of connected devices to combat current and future vulnerabilities."

Key highlights of Ordr SCE 7.2 include:

    --  Broader and Deeper Visibility and Classification for Internet of Medical
        Things (IoMT)Ordr further extends its understanding of millions of IoMT
        devices. SCE 7.2 adds visibility and context for critical medical
        devices - such as blood analyzers, patient monitors, protocol analyzers
        - as well as unmanaged endpoints and workstations, including those that
        may be deployed behind existing network gateways.

    --  New Visibility and Classification for Building Automation and Control
        SystemsFacilities managers in enterprises including healthcare,
        manufacturing, and retail organizations have adopted IoT for physical
        security of critical infrastructure, energy efficiency, and employees'
        comfort and convenience. These controllers manage access, energy, and
        environmental air quality, which are critical to business operations.
        SCE 7.2 adds support for smart building systems including Honeywell,
        Johnson, Tridium, and Lutron BACnet controllers to ensure facilities
        teams can operate state of the art systems without compromising

    --  Enhanced Device Insights IT and OT teams need access to rich device
        insights to identify underutilized high-capital equipment, to ensure the
        longevity of certain devices, or to address compliance. SCE 7.2 enhances
        the solution's already strong device and utilization insights:
        --  Device utilization - During the COVID-19 surge, customers used Ordr
            to identify and quickly repurpose underutilized devices and track
            high demand devices such as ventilators. In this release, Ordr
            enables enhanced utilization insights for additional devices such as
            Hospira, Braun, and Smiths Medical infusion pumps.
        --  Device user mapping - Ordr can extract the latest authentication
            information via Active Directory/LDAP, WinRM/WMI, and Kerberos to
            identify device users. Such information is critical to locate
            devices associated with a specific owner or to identify the most
            recent authenticated login during a security incident.

    --  Extended list of integrations Ordr has one of the most comprehensive
        sets of product integrations in the market. Ordr provides value to
        networking, security, and device owners via built-in integrations that
        can mitigate organizational risks and increase efficiency. Integrations
        in this release include:
        --  Discovery: Computer maintenance management systems (CMMS) including
            enhanced integration with Nuvolo.
        --  Risk: Vulnerability management solutions such as Rapid7 and Tenable
            to inform an overall risk posture but also enable vulnerability
            identification in networks with sensitive devices that cannot
            withstand active scans.
        --  IT and SecOps: Security operations center (SOC) and IT service
            management (ITSM) tools such as Splunk, ServiceNow, and LogRhythm.
        --  Networking and Infrastructure: Check Point, Palo Alto Networks,
            Cisco ISE, Aruba ClearPass, and Infoblox.
        --  Additional information can be found in the latest Integrations
    --  Ripple20 solution(1) - JSOF recently published information on 19
        vulnerabilities they found in the Treck TCP/IP software used by many
        device manufacturers. Ordr SCE can detect devices impacted using a
        built-in Ripple20 scanner as well as detect active exploitation using
        the Ordr intrusion detection engine. Ordr then proactively isolates
        impacted devices by dynamically generating policies and enforcing them
        on network devices or next-generation firewalls. For more information on
        how Ordr can help detect and mitigate these vulnerabilities, see the
        latest Ordr Security Bulletin.
