Ordr Unveils Cybersecurity Innovations and Ransom-Aware Rapid Assessment Service to Expand Its Leadership In Connected Device Security

Written by

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – October 28th, 2021 – Ordr, the leader in connected device security, announced new cybersecurity features along with a Ransom-Aware Rapid AssessmentTM service to help security teams accelerate their response to ransomware and other advanced attacks.
Ransomware attacks have accelerated in the past year, due to the ready availability of ransomware as a service, the expansion of the attack surface from connected devices and remote work, and the ease of ransomware payments using cryptocurrency. Enterprises are recognizing that in order to move quickly from threat detection to response, security teams need context on the device that is under attack – what it is, where it is located, whether they can act upon the device and exactly what mitigation steps are possible.
Ordr provides these answers via comprehensive visibility into devices, their corresponding network flows, risks, and anomalous behaviors, along with automated policies to proactively, reactively and retrospectively respond to attacks.
Highlights of the new cybersecurity features and benefits in the latest Ordr Hydrangea Fall 2021 Release include:
“As threat actors continue to target organizations around the world with ransomware, security teams need to understand where their risks lie. Ordr helps organizations understand their ransomware exposure and readiness. This will be invaluable to every organization trying to prepare against this imminent threat, “ said Frank Rondinone, President and Founder, Access2Networks.
“The enhancements in this release further bolster what is the most complete agentless device security platform in the industry. We’re making it easier than ever for enterprises to customize their risks, detect threats specific to their industry, continuously manage risks and secure every connected asset everywhere,” said Pandian Gnanaprakasam, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Ordr.
The Ordr platform is already helping security teams reduce their time to detect and respond to attacks. In a KLAS Research customer interview, one Chief Information Security Officer said Ordr had reduced their incident response time by hours:
The biggest outcome is a significant decrease in the amount of incident response time. We have used Ordr Platform as part of our incident response with ransomware. Because we couldn’t run our antivirus on our machines, we were able to go in and identify the specific machine on the Ordr Platform and provide a picture to the field support. The network engineers had already logged into the Ordr Platform, saw the traffic and killed the port so that it couldn’t communicate. That was very handy so that when a field support person walked into the room, they knew exactly where they were going. We were able to get the medical devices back up and running on our network and segmented really quickly. Ordr made that quick turnaround happen. We have factored the utilization of Ordr platform into our incident response plans. We have been able to reduce our response time by hours. We already had a really robust response time and plan, and the system sped things up significantly.”
