Claroty and Schneider Electric are partnering to address safety and cybersecurity challenges for the world’s industrial infrastructure. Under the terms of the agreement, Claroty will market its real-time OT/ICS network monitoring and detection solution to Schneider Electric’s customers through the company’s collaborative automation partner programme (CAPP).
The Claroty platform proactively protects industrial control systems and continuously monitors industrial networks for cyber threats. With secure remote access, asset owners can employ policies to control remote employee and third-party access to critical systems, and record the sessions. Continuous threat detection creates a detailed inventory of industrial network assets, identifies misconfigurations, monitors traffic between assets, and finds anomalies that may indicate the presence of a malicious actor. Context rich alerts provide plant and security personnel with actionable insights for efficient investigation, response, and recovery.
This partnership adds to Schneider Electric’s end-to-end cybersecurity offerings by protecting its connected products and edge control offerings within the company’s EcoStruxure architecture.
“At Schneider Electric, we recognise the urgent need to assist our customers in enhancing their safety and cybersecurity programmes,” said David Doggett, senior director cybersecurity, industry business, Schneider Electric. “One way we are addressing this need is through partnering with Claroty to provide real-time network monitoring and anomaly-detection.”
Schneider Electric and Claroty have conducted rigorous testing to validate solution interoperability. Claroty is a key partner for network security monitoring system within CAPP. CAPP enables Schneider Electric to offer complete business solutions by integrating innovative technologies developed by its partner ecosystem into its own offerings.
“Passive network intrusion detection techniques are critical for applications where system availability is paramount,” continues Doggett. “Claroty’s platform can strengthen solutions against known cyber-attacks that have bypassed existing boundary protections. The technology can also alert network operators about novel attack vectors or attacks initiated by rouge insiders using existing tools and credentials.”
