Nozomi Networks Named a 2017 Gartner Cool Vendor

Recognition from world’s leading research and advisory firm comes as the company announces strong customer growth and strategic hires.

SAN FRANCISCO, June 14, 2017 – Nozomi Networks Inc., the pioneer in real-time cyber security and operational visibility for industrial control systems (ICS), today announced that it has been selected by Gartner, Inc., as a 2017 Cool Vendor*. Cool Vendor reports identify companies who are recognized for their innovation, impact and intrigue in the markets they serve.

“It’s an honor for us to be a Gartner Cool Vendor. We are proud of our innovation and its positive impact on our global customers,” said Nozomi Networks CEO Edgard Capdevielle. “We believe this is strong validation of the strength of our product and it’s proven value to customers around the globe. Our employees are gratified to see Nozomi Networks recognized by Gartner and know technology executives and boards can rely on Gartner for valuable insights.”

Leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning, Nozomi Networks has created a single platform for comprehensive ICS cyber security with tens of thousands of industrial devices secured around the world. It combines anomaly detection, vulnerability assessment and asset inventory into one solution that secures critical infrastructure operations amid rising global threats.

In addition to the Gartner news, the company today announced it has added Global Chief Marketing Officer Kim Legelis and Vice President of Business Development Chet Namboodri to the company’s management team. Both bring deep experience and valuable business relationships in industrial networking and ICS security forged during their previous tenures with Cisco Systems, GE, Lockheed Martin, Industrial Defender and Symantec.

Since announcing a $7.5 million series A funding round in October, Nozomi Networks has seen better than expected market growth in both North America and Europe. In March Nozomi Networks announced a new release of SCADAguardian, delivering the industry’s most comprehensive solution for both operational visibility and ICS cyber security. The company exceeded its Q1 forecast for customer growth, strengthened key partnerships with Fortinet and Check Point and expanded its overall partner program to more than a dozen integrators. The company has deployed its technologies globally to leaders in key industries such as oil, power generation, nuclear energy and manufacturing. Beyond customer expansion, industry accolades continue to accumulate. Nozomi Networks was recognized at the RSA Conference as Cyber Defense Magazine’s Cutting Edge ICS/SCADA Security Solution Winner. The company won the popular vote in this year’s Cyber security Excellence Awards; and just last week Nozomi Networks was named a Red Herring Top 100 North America Finalist.

“When we moved corporate headquarters to San Francisco and added Edgard (Capdevielle) to the team in October we expected it to be a solid year for Nozomi Networks,” said Co-founder and Chief Product Officer Andrea Carcano. “The progress we’ve made so far has exceeded our expectations. I believe this latest recognition from Gartner, as well as significant customer growth and the industry talent joining our team, is a testament to the strength of our company, our product and our vision; and an indicator of much more to come in the months ahead.”
