Claroty partners with Global Resilience Federation to help ISAC members strengthen their Operational Technology (OT) security
Claroty, the global leader in industrial cybersecurity, today announced that it has partnered with Global Resilience Foundation (GRF) to provide its members access to original threat research, best practices, and strategic content to help guide them as they converge their information technology (IT) security and operational technology (OT) security strategies. Claroty will share security information with Operational Technology Information Sharing and Analysis Center (OT-ISAC), and other GRF affiliated ISACs leveraging operational technology.
“We are pleased to work with Claroty, our first OT focused security partner, to help advance security for critical infrastructure sharing communities,” said Mark Orsi, President of GRF. “Our members are very aware of how important it is to secure their OT environments, and how the increasing connectivity between IT and OT systems translates to greater threats to physical processes and systems.”
GRF is a hub for sharing communities to protect industries and critical infrastructure through operational cross-sector sharing of cyber threat information and physical security risks. GRF offers member communities numerous benefits, including discounts on vendor tools and training, along with access to GRF’s automated, cross-industry, multidirectional data sharing program allowing for the real-time distribution and consumption of threat information.
Claroty improves the availability, safety, and reliability of OT assets and networks within industrial enterprises and critical infrastructure. The Claroty Platform provides comprehensive OT asset and network visibility, segmentation, vulnerability management, threat detection, risk assessment, and Secure Remote Access capabilities (SRA) —all within a single, agentless solution.
Unique to Claroty, SRA provides a single, secure, and clientless interface through which all external users connect prior to performing software upgrades, periodic maintenance, and other support activities on assets within OT networks. This is all enriched by the company’s award-winning OT security research department.
“Information sharing is a critical tool for empowering OT cyber defenders, and partnerships like ours with the Global Resilience Foundation are a trusted, collaborative, and efficient way to help organisations get the guidance they need to better secure their OT environments,” said Dave Weinstein, Chief Security Officer at Claroty.
“Claroty possesses a privileged perspective of the OT threat landscape, and we are very much looking forward to sharing it with GRF and its members across multiple sectors to bolster their collective cybersecurity for both OT and IT infrastructure.”
Claroty bridges the industrial cybersecurity gap between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) environments. Organisations with highly automated production sites and factories that face significant security and financial risk especially need to bridge this gap. Armed with Claroty’s converged IT/OT solutions, these enterprises and critical infrastructure operators can leverage their existing IT security processes and technologies to improve the availability, safety, and reliability of their OT assets and networks seamlessly and without requiring downtime or dedicated teams. The result is more uptime and greater efficiency across business and production operations.
Backed and adopted by leading industrial automation vendors, Claroty is deployed on all seven continents globally. The company is headquartered in New York City and has received $100 million in funding since being launched by the famed Team8 foundry in 2015. For more information, visit www.claroty.com.
