Fortress Information Security and NetRise form a partnership to extend XIoT offering
This partnership gives Fortress Information Security’s global customers access to the firmware binary analysis platform. The NetRise team’s experience in data science, machine learning; and software reverse engineering expands Fortress customers’ ability to identify and catalog risk across a much larger set of devices and images. NetRise gains access to a robust route to market for power, oil and gas and manufacturing clients that Fortress serves, a market that historically has proven difficult to tap into.
NetRise has developed an automated, cloud-based platform that provides insight into the many risks present in a XIoT device. These risks and associated artifacts are presented in a clear and concise manner allowing consultants, product security personnel and SOC analysts to take appropriate action and begin to address the risks presented by these devices in their environment.
Tony Turner, Vice President of Fortress had this to say, “We are excited to be working with the NetRise team and have been very impressed with the capabilities of their platform overall. Most impressive is the velocity at which new features and any fixes have been delivered, and the flexibility of the team in working to integrate our ideas into the solution so quickly. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the NetRise team.”
Thomas Pace, CEO of NetRise also commented: “This partnership represents an important milestone for our business. The team of world-class consultants and operational technology experts at Fortress have already brought great ideas to the table that are continually being integrated into our roadmaps. This partnership is a perfect example of why it is so important that technology startups find the right early design partners and customers to ensure they are building a great solution.”
