In February 2022, SynSaber announced the general availability of its product, a small device that enables organizations to gain visibility into their OT environments and detect potential threats.

The vendor-agnostic threat sensor can be hosted on existing infrastructure and it relies on so-called ‘Sabers’ to continuously collect data from ICS, IIoT, and legacy computing systems to enable operators and analysts to monitor and secure their networks.
