The original pioneers of ICS/SCADA visualization and monitoring, US-owned and operated NexDefense empowers industrial control system operators with the real-time knowledge needed to improve the system and process integrity and combat cybersecurity threats. Through Integrity, engineers, security, and control system operators can covertly maintain direct visibility, insight, and awareness over risks to the resiliency of engineered networks without sacrificing productivity or performance. Their technology predates the company, as they DOE-funded and originally developed the software in 2010/2011. Later, the Battelle Energy Alliance signed a Patent and Copyright License giving NexDefense exclusive rights to commercialize its patent-pending Sophia software. Integrity is the next evolution of Sophia, and the NexDefense Integrity product suite can be found in utilities, oil & gas, defense & critical infrastructure (incl. water/wastewater), manufacturing & mining, transportation, and building automation.
