APERIO Systems, developer of software that protects critical infrastructure, will represent Israel at the prestigious RSA Conference, taking place next week in San Francisco. APERIO won two tickets to the big cyber event upon being crowned most innovative startup in cybersecurity at CyberTech in Tel Aviv.

YL Ventures selected APERIO Systems as winner of its Startup Competition at CyberTech.

“APERIO Systems passively plugs into the plant’s historians and PI servers and collects data from it. These systems are built for the purpose of allowing external analytic products to access the plant’s production data and are deployed in the vast majority of critical utilities around the world,” reads the company’s mission statement.

APERIO beat out finalists Cybellum, which developed a zero-day prevention platform to protect companies from zero-day attacks; Sepio Systems, which aims to protect critical infrastructure against threats on supply chains without degrading performance; Cymulate, a SaaS based cyber-attack simulation company; and Intezer, which developed a virtual security camera for enterprises’ cyberspace.
