Mission Secure rebrands as MSi
Charlottesville, VA-based Mission Secure, Inc. announced on August 11 that it has launched a new website and rebranding initiative. The company will now do business as “MSi” while retaining “Mission Secure, Inc.” for legal purposes. The branding initiative reinforces MSi’s unique value proposition and better aligns with the company’s expanded commercial footprint. In addition to its defense customers, MSi now serves a wide range of industries that depend on the safe and reliable performance of critical assets, infrastructure, processes and controls.
“MSi continues to advance rapidly in the cyber physical system security market and we’ve commercialized our innovative and patent pending technology for use in defense and industrial applications,” said David Drescher, chief executive officer. “Many industries rely on OT and control systems to run their operations. These systems were designed for efficiency and safety. They were not designed to defend against sophisticated cyberattacks that could cause severe physical damage. MSi is engaging with a number of diverse organizations that recognize the need to be better prepared for such attacks, including both military and commercial entities.
“Our new branding approach reflects the widespread commercial applicability for our product and our focus on providing innovative OT-focused cyber defense solutions to customers,” Drescher concluded.
MSi’s proprietary technology has been in development since 2010. Initially created to help protect critical military systems and platforms such as unmanned aerial vehicles and ships, the company’s “MSi Secure Sentinel Platform” is now available for use in oil and gas, power, chemicals, and a variety of defense assets. The Platform operates in the OT domain. It helps maintain safe and reliable performance for control systems and the critical processes they operate by providing visibility, protection, forensics and corrective action capabilities.
“This rebranding initiative was conducted with a resolute eye on the future,” said Honor Guiney, chief operating officer. “The cyber physical threat landscape is evolving quickly. MSi is a pioneer in the field and is well positioned to help our customers address the realities of this challenge and safeguard their operations. Our new branding aligns with our progressive model and conveys the rigor of our proven mitigation technologies and the energy and depth of our growth strategy.”
