Ordr – Making IoT device security simple through zero touch agentless deployment for multiple stakeholders


With the increasing reliance on technology, it is becoming more and more essential to secure every aspect of online information and data. As the internet grows and computer networks become bigger, data integrity has become one of the most important aspects for organizations to consider. Network security is one of the most important aspects to consider when working over the internet, LAN or other method, no matter how small or big your business is. While there is no network that is immune to attacks, a stable and efficient network security system is essential to protecting client data. A good network security system helps business reduce the risk of falling victim of data theft and sabotage. Network security helps protect your workstations from harmful spyware. It also ensures that shared data is kept secure. Network security infrastructure provides several levels of protection to prevent MiM attacks by breaking down information into numerous parts, encrypting these parts and transmitting them through independent paths thus preventing cases like eavesdropping.

Ordr is one such firm that provides enterprises with complete visibility and exhaustive control over every unmanaged device IoT, IoMT, and OT. The Ordr Systems Control Engine is the only purpose-built solution to discover and classify all devices, fully profile device behavior and risks at massive scale, and automate a variety of actions. Ordr is unique in its ability to automatically generate policies that enable only "sanctioned" device communications, and enforce policies for every class of device directly through the organization’s network and security infrastructure. The firm is focused on making IoT device security simple through zero touch agentless deployment, one common platform for multiple stakeholders, and enabling the complete device security lifecycle. Discover all devices, profile device behavior and risks, and automate response for any connected device.

Reliable IoT solutions

Ordr Healthcare: The healthcare industry is continuously on the leading edge of innovation, significantly improving the quality and delivery of care at an accelerating pace. An accelerated development pace means a growing number of devices in the network, all of which must be secured. Ordr is the leader in IoT security for Healthcare. The firm offers a “whole hospital” approach that secures all connected devices IoT, IoMT, and operational technologies that are critical to the patient care experience. The firm offers one platform with comprehensive features that serves security teams, networking teams and clinical technicians. Its platform can identify high-risk devices with vulnerabilities and legacy operating systems. It identifies active exploits using integrated intrusion detection engine and alert on malicious device communications. Use the Ordr Policy Generator to proactively create segmentation policies to isolate high-risk devices.

Ordr Enterprise: IoT devices are proliferating in the modern, high-tech enterprise. Traditional endpoint security agents cannot be deployed on these devices. The company discovers, classifies and then profiles and analyzes these devices for risks and anomalous behaviors. The Ordr Policy Generator then dynamically generates policies to segment vulnerable devices to help ensure their security. IP-enabled smart devices like speakers and displays are used to enable employee productivity but can bring risks to the organization such as eavesdropping and recording sensitive conversations.

Ordr Manufacturing: Manufacturing companies are embracing IoT devices to improve operational efficiencies, locate tools, inventory equipment and finished goods, and enhance productivity. Ordr provides the ability to discover, assess risk, and secure these devices without impact to manufacturing operations. IP-enabled manufacturing devices monitor and enhance manufacturing efficiency. Cyberattacks on these devices will have a detrimental impact on revenue and manufacturing operations. IoT devices are used to locate tools and equipment and track finished goods inventory on the manufacturing floor. These devices are critical for business operations and need to be secured.

The pre-eminent leader behind the success of Ordr

Greg Murphy is the President and serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Ordr. Previously; he was VP Business Operations for the HPE Aruba Group, the 4,000 person networking and IoT business unit of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. In that role, Mr. Greg was responsible for leading the business integration of Aruba and HP Networking following HP’s $3 billion acquisition of Aruba Networks in 2015. He held multiple prior senior executive positions within Aruba, including SVP Business Operations, GM of network management software, and GM of outdoor and mesh products and VP of Marketing. Mr. Greg joined Aruba in 2008 through its acquisition of AirWave Wireless, a network management software provider that Greg founded and led. Greg received his M.A. from Stanford University and his B.A. from Amherst College.
