A Tall 'Ordr' for IoT: Industry Demands for Connected Device Security Rise


Right away, let’s get the pun out in the open: “Ordr” is more than “Order” with unusual spelling; Ordr is a company focused on making connected device security in IoT much simpler through zero-touch agentless deployment, a single platform for the multitude of stakeholders, and smart automation of policies for responsibly secure devices. Ordr works to “bring Ordr” to the chaotic complexities of securing devices in today’s world. From traditional IT devices to newer and more vulnerable ones, across traditional IoT, IIoT, IoMT and more.

The long story short? Whatever’s connected must be protected. Eliminating security black holes in organizations’ infrastructures is the key, and Ordr seeks to unlock the door.

"With industries as diverse as healthcare, manufacturing, financial services, smart cities, government and higher education depending on connected devices to conduct daily operations, it’ no surprise that security has become a top priority," said Jim Hyman, CEO of Ordr. "Organizations need the granular visibility that Ordr delivers, enabling teams to see what devices are connecting to their network, where they are connected, and what they're doing when connected. It's only with this real-time context that organizations can accurately identify their complete attack surface and mitigate risks via automated policies."

This leads us to the news: In a statement shared yesterday, the team Ordr describes a “significant increase” in industry demand for intuitive, connected device security. This is notable for Ordr especially, given the company’s annual revenue growth from the first half of 2022 through the first half of 2023 jumped by – wait for it – 249%. Also, earlier this year, Ordr’s platform was awarded the 2022 IoT Excellence Award, as well as additional recognitions from Gartner, KLAS Research, EMA, and others.

Suffice it to say, Ordr might know a thing or two about this space.

AI-powered connected device security platforms (not unlike Ordr’s) give organizations a single source of truth for every device, revealing entire attack surfaces (i.e. including harder-to-spot vulnerabilities, exploits and anomalies). With the ongoing everything-is-digital expansions and transformations that industries are seeing, it’s more important than ever to secure connected devices. (Particularly those with longer lifecycles, as they often outlive the OS and security software installed on them in the first place, creating instant security issues.)

“We’re seeing great momentum for enterprises today,” Mark Grassmann, Cybersecurity Practice Principal, Alchemy Technology Group, stated. “It’s momentum that’s bringing together extensive cybersecurity reexaminations and overhauls, and Ordr’s technology works for every asset on a network.”

Companies like Alchemy Technology Group – who, noteworthily, inked a partnership with Ordr – understand that strengthening security postures is no small task. There’s currently zero shortage of devices being added to networks as connectivity demands spike, and resource-constrained IT and security teams need fuller understandings of proper policies, plus deeper security and visibility control mechanisms to get handles on current developments (and to future-proof what’s to come).

Reestablishing order in IoT through tightly secure operational flows. That sounds like a good start.
