Offering includes security solutions from Nozomi Networks and Cervello to deliver a comprehensive cybersecurity portfolio to better protect railway organizations, generate complete network visibility, detect threats and reduce overall risk.
SAN FRANCISCO and TEL AVIV, Israel, Sept. 22, 2021 — Nozomi Networks Inc., the global leader in OT and IoT security, and Cervello, the leading railway cybersecurity company, today announced they have partnered to provide the rail industry with comprehensive, end-to-end cybersecurity. The partnership combines Nozomi Networks’ industry-leading OT & Internet of Things (IoT) security, visibility, and scale with the strengths of Cervello’s security software and deep expertise in railway operation and safety. Together, Nozomi Networks and Cervello deliver superior visualization of the entire OT, IT, and IoT railway networks, early cyber threat detection, management of cybersecurity compliance, and efficient remediation to ensure operational continuity.
“Digital transformation of the world’s rail systems increasingly requires IoT and cloud-based solutions to improve railway safety, operational efficiency, and reliability. Of course, this purposeful proliferation and utilization of IoT opens the door to new cyber threats and increases the rail and transport attack surface,” said Chet Namboodri, Nozomi Networks Senior Vice President of Business Development and Alliances. “That’s why Nozomi Networks has partnered with Cervello to help railway operators ensure safe and reliable transportation, while avoiding operational disruptions. We have several joint projects underway with advanced rail systems in Europe, and this now formalized global partnership enables us to more rapidly expand our joint efforts worldwide.”
Rail organizations require a cybersecurity solution built specifically for their constraints, methodologies, and proprietary systems. Cervello’s railway threat detection complements the Nozomi Networks cybersecurity portfolio to simplify, scale and strengthen railway security operations, while helping customers identify and respond effectively to cyber threats before they penetrate their critical network and activities via Nozomi Networks’ converged OT/IT/IoT purview. The Cervello Platform connects seamlessly and protects rail communications, signaling, and control systems against potential or existing threats to both safety and security.
“As a growing number of transportation organizations embrace the benefits of digital convergence, the need to implement cybersecurity for their operational networks is paramount,” Chet Namboodri continued. “We are pleased to be partnering with a leader in the rail and transport industry to help secure critical transportation infrastructure systems with OT and ICS visibility and security.”
“Our partnership with Nozomi Networks will enable us to provide customers with a one-stop shop for best-in-class railway cybersecurity,” said Roie Onn, CEO and Co-Founder, Cervello. “With the continued rise of cyber threats facing rail organizations around the world, customers are looking for the best, easiest, and most efficient ways to protect operating environments and reduce cybersecurity risk.
