Bayshore Networks® Named a 2015 Cool Vendor by Gartner

Leading Analyst Firm Selects Four Vendors in the New Category "Managing OT in a Digital Business"

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2015) - Bayshore Networks, the cybersecurity leader for the Industrial Internet of Things, has been named by Gartner as a 2015 Cool Vendor. The Gartner report, titled "Cool Vendors in Managing OT in a Digital Business, 2015," recognizes four vendors in the new space. 

Gartner designates the "Cool Vendor" distinction annually to companies that are breaking new ground in their industry with innovative solutions. The report recognizes that the drive toward integrated IT and Operational Technology (OT) systems is creating challenges and opportunities, and that new vendors are emerging, particularly in the areas of monitoring and cybersecurity.

"We believe being named a Cool Vendor by Gartner during our break-out year is further validation of the power of our patented content-aware inspection and filtration technology in both IT and OT environments," said Francis Cianfrocca, Founder & CEO of Bayshore Networks. "The Bayshore cybersecurity platform provides machine-specific protection down to the transaction level of industrial protocols and applications. The granularity of this inspection enables content-based network segmentation and isolation, which delivers the scalability required in machine-to-machine environments."
