Ampex Data Systems (Ampex), a Delta Information Systems Company, announced a signed teaming agreement with Mantix4 to provide enhanced cyber threat intelligence and monitoring across critical operational technology (OT) networks.
In this collaboration, Ampex and Mantix4 will deliver unparalleled cyber resiliency across information technology (IT) and operating technology (OT) environments. Additionally, this partnership will offer emphasized vulnerability research on critical operating technologies, resulting in peak security and protection for customer’s business and associated technologies.
For over 75 years, Ampex has been innovating solutions for data management and data storage with recent cutting-edge developments in cyber security technologies for operational technology. Jim Orahood, Vice President and General Manager of Ampex stated, “We look forward to working together with Mantix4 to provide customers a complete cyber security solution that focuses on the myriad of threats facing often-overlooked OT networks.”
From critical infrastructure and military installations to manufacturing and the energy sector, OT and IT domains are becoming more integrated. Unlike IT, OT networks include unique protocols and support devices that control physical processes like electric power generation or fuel flow. Mantix4’s award-winning M4 Cyber Threat Hunting Platform reduces the complexity of typical IT cyber security infrastructure and offers users actionable information about their network traffic patterns through a highly-visual display engine. “This partnership allows us to meet the needs of both Federal Government and Commercial entities with a complete solution for the IT and OT (SCADA and ICS) space” said John Stubbs, CEO and co-founder, Mantix4.

Mantix4’s M4 Cyber Threat Hunting Platform was originally developed in 2011 by a team of defense intelligence, cyber security, and military experts. Mantix4 leverages advanced threat intelligence, big data analytics, and behavior anomalies, to give users context-based threat intelligence through a highly-visual platform. The system can even detect and neutralize sophisticated breaches, including advanced viruses that can ‘play dead,’ and lie dormant in a company’s systems for months. The solution is delivered over the cloud in a Tier III Gold Certified Data Center, and also through MSP/MSSPs with security operations centers throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Within 24 hours, the platform is proactively collecting and displaying actionable information about inbound, outbound and lateral traffic. For more information, visit www.mantix4.com.
