Claroty, an industrial cyber security company, and Yokogawa Engineering Asia have entered a partnership to provide further secure process operations against cyber threats for Yokogawa customers in Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
Assets in industrial environments – including operational technology (OT), Internet of Things (IoT), and industrial IoT (IIoT) – are hard to detect, hard to manage, and even harder to secure.
Adding to this challenge is the accelerating convergence of IT and OT networks, which enhances the efficiency of industrial operations, but also increases the attack surface available to adversaries, both companies said in a media release.
As a result, industrial enterprises and critical infrastructure providers need to be able to detect and respond to cyber threats more quickly and effectively than ever before.
“Our software combined with Yokogawa’s expertise gives organisations like IRPC Public Company in Thailand deep visibility into their industrial environments, security controls for those environments, and actionable insights that allow them to better assess and improve their security posture,” said Eddie Stefanescu, General Manager of APJ at Claroty.
Available as an added product or service, or embedded within Yokogawa’s managed security services, the Claroty Platform reveals 100% of OT, IoT, and IIoT assets on enterprise networks and protects them from vulnerabilities, emerging threats, malicious insiders, and unintentional errors.
Its resilient threat detection model continually monitors the network for both known and unknown threats, automatically weeds out false positives, and gives clear direction on how to take action.
“Our partnership with Claroty further reinforces process operation cyber security protection and will deliver plant security lifecycle services based on the defence-in-depth approach corresponding to international standards for enhanced operational resilience,” said Charles Lim, Head of Digital Innovation & Security Solution at Yokogawa Engineering Asia.
