© Frost & Sullivan 2021 The Growth Pipeline Company™ Best Practices Criteria for World-Class Performance Frost & Sullivan applies a rigorous analytical process to evaluate multiple nominees for each award category before determining the final award recipient. The process involves a detailed evaluation of best practices criteria across two dimensions for each nominated company. PAS, part of Hexagon, excels in many of the criteria in the critical national infrastructure cybersecurity space. Cyber Integrity: Protecting and Securing Critical Infrastructure With the increased usage of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies comes an expanding threat landscape, which easily enables cyber threats to permeate an organization's network; thus, they must secure their environments. Operational technology (OT) utilized in critical national infrastructure (CNI) and industrial environments are complex to secure due to their age (designed and manufactured before IoT emergence), requiring organizations to deploy sophisticated cybersecurity technology that protects the industrial IoT (IIoT) environment. Information technology (IT)-based cybersecurity solutions cannot handle OT ecosystems' complexity as they detect and protect less than a quarter of all OT equipment. Organizations can face severe consequences for inadequately secured systems, including fines, job losses, brand damage, and customer distrust. Furthermore, to avoid ramifications, CNI organizations must remain compliant with strict industry standards, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC CIP). "Cyber Integrity's compliance management feature uses process automation and standard, customized, and location-based reporting to produce automated industry standard compliance audit documentation quickly and easily, decreasing security teams' compliance efforts by up to 90%." - Tara Semon, Best Practices Research Team Leader
