HOUSTON, June 2, 2022 — ABS Consulting Inc. (“ABS Consulting”), a leading global risk management company, and Nozomi Networks Inc. (“Nozomi Networks”), a leader in operational technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) security, today announced that ABS Consulting has been certified as a Nozomi Networks MSSP Elite Partner. With this certification, ABS Consulting joins an exclusive group of leading Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) who have passed Nozomi Networks’ most rigorous assessments.
The certification strongly aligns the two companies to meet the robust security needs of industrial clients. Nozomi Networks’ industry-leading solutions and expertise are now part of ABS Consulting’s managed security services offerings for industrial control systems (ICS) and OT environments. The industrial-heavy sectors of oil, gas, and chemical and marine and offshore, where ABS Consulting has a deep legacy now have access to Nozomi Networks solutions via a MSSP provider they trust.
“We look forward to continuing to expand our partnership with Nozomi Networks to make cyber-physical protection for critical infrastructure environments more accessible to customers across industrial sectors,” said Ian Bramson, Global Head of Industrial Cybersecurity at ABS Consulting. “As cyber-threats continue to emerge within the industry, ABS Consulting remains vigilant; continuously advancing our industrial cybersecurity solutions to provide unparalleled peace of mind for our clients as we implement OT threat monitoring, detection, and response services.”
With cyber-physical threats to OT increasing in frequency and scope, it is essential that MSSPs partner with market leaders to guide industrial enterprises as they address evolving threat landscapes and expanding attack surfaces. As a certified Nozomi Networks’ MSSP Elite Partner, ABS Consulting can help customers better thwart hackers and increase visibility and control by providing cybersecurity managed services that are purpose built to protect OT environments. Combining Nozomi’s state-of-the-art passive monitoring technology with ABS Consulting’s deep domain expertise in cybersecurity and industrial operations will help to safeguard individual customers and the industry at large from the rising threat of cyber attacks.
“ABS Consulting is filling an essential role as an industrial cybersecurity leader with deep expertise in the ongoing race to secure critical infrastructure,” said Chet Namboodri, Nozomi Networks Senior Vice President of Business Development and Alliances. “We are working together with a broad portfolio of OT cybersecurity services to close the gaps in cyber-physical security for industrial control systems.”
As a certified MSSP Elite Partner, ABS Consulting joins a select group of top-tier providers who are specially skilled and trained to manage Nozomi Networks products. It expands ABS Consulting’s partnership with Nozomi Networks. ABS Consulting will use this opportunity to fully utilize and build upon the existing capabilities of Nozomi Networks’ Vantage, Guardian, and Central Management Console (CMC) products.
