ATLANTA, Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sophia, a patent-pending, passive, real-time Industrial Network Anomaly Detection (INAD) system, is currently available for testing and deployment planning through its Sophia Beta II Testing and Planning Program.
To date, program participation has been very strong. End-users in the power, oil & gas and defense markets, industrial control system (ICS) vendors and integrators, as well as ICS risk assessment and auditing organizations, have enrolled in the Program. Beta participants see immediate benefits in the fingerprinting process and longer-term benefits in whitelisting, monitoring, securing, troubleshooting and reconfiguring ICS.
"Cyber security threats continue to evolve and threaten critical infrastructure systems, so hardening control systems is very important," says Mike Assante, Co-Founder & Chief Security Strategist for NexDefense. "ICS users need insight into their systems and the ability to monitor and compensate for known and unknown vulnerabilities. The Sophia INAD system provides continuous real-time monitoring of the communications in your ICS and alerts you of new devices communicating with your network, as well as changes in existing device communications. Sophia was designed to deliver insight and real-time monitoring to quickly spot errors and unexpected communication attempts."
Current and future active participants in the Beta II Program before Sophia's commercial release early in the fourth quarter of 2014 will receive special incentives for being among the first to order commercial Sophia licenses and support. This will be a limited time offer.

When your signup is complete, you will receive access to the NexDefense Users Forum, where you can download the Sophia software, Quick-Start Guide and full User Guide, as well as receive peer and NexDefense program support.
