SAN FRANCISCO, February 26, 2018 — Nozomi Networks Inc., the leader in real-time cybersecurity and operational visibility for industrial control systems (ICS) announced today that it will be at Fortinet Accelerate this week to show how Nozomi Networks and Fortinet are working together to deliver advanced cybersecurity solutions for Industrial IoT.
The increased connectivity of ICS and OT (Operations Technology) applications have helped drive optimization of automation and critical networks across various industries. However, the trend of connectivity has also exposed these critical networks to new operational risks and cyber threats. Such attacks as Industroyer/CrashOverride and Triton underscore the vulnerable nature of the ICS and the need for OT networks to increase their security posture.
At Fortinet Accelerate, Chet Namboodri, Nozomi Networks Vice President of Alliances and Business Development will lead a special breakout session to demonstrate how Fortinet and Nozomi Networks are working together to address this need with an innovative approach to OT/IT cybersecurity. With Nozomi Networks SCADAguardian, Fortinet’s Security Fabric has been extended to offer increased visibility and operational intelligence for ICS and OT applications. The session will give participants a chance to see first hand how these two technologies are working together to deliver detailed behavior-based anomaly detection, comprehensive IT/OT threat detection and better-informed policy enforcement.
