Gemina will resell Nozomi Networks Solutions as a preferred provider for OT and IoT security and visibility
São Paulo, April 25, 2022 – Nozomi Networks, the leader in OT and IoT security, and Gemina Threat Intelligence, a managed security services provider (MSSP), today announced they have partnered to broaden Gemina’s portfolio of security solutions available for industrial and critical infrastructure organizations in Brazil. Gemina works with and resell Nozomi Networks solutions as part of its Operational Technology Threat Management portfolio. Together, they transform the industry model, offering security and business continuity as a service, supporting the reduction of costs and response time to cyber incidents or anomalies.
According to Nycholas Szucko, Sales Director, Nozomi Networks Brazil, this sector is still known for hardware acquisition, with challenges of sizing it in the right way, due to lack of up-to-date inventory or documented architecture. With the advent of digital transformation, industry 4.0 and hyper connectivity, these environments are seeking modernization and are on the way to operate with virtual machines and SaaS.
In line with this trend of migration from hardware to services, Nozomi Networks launched Vantage, an industry-first cloud-based SaaS offering that consolidates data aggregation, analysis and operations across OT, IoT and IT assets. Designed to meet the rapidly evolving requirements of IoT-enabled infrastructures, the Vantage platform equips security professionals and industrial operators with actionable, AI-driven insights to identify and manage risks and speed precise remediation. It is a solution that follows the multi-tenant concept, which means that it promotes the management of multiple clients from a single provider, maintaining the security, reliability, and privacy of the environment. Furthermore, the solution is very flexible, promoting gains in scale, in addition to providing licensing for ranges of devices, unlimited virtual machines and, when necessary, also the hardware.
“In order for the monitoring and detection solution to be used in its entirety, it is necessary to have specialists who have extensive knowledge both on the industrial environment, its needs, and vulnerabilities, and on information security. Gemina has a multidisciplinary team such as chemists, engineers and experts in data protection, aligning technical and cyber security knowledge to help ensure that customers choose the right solution for their environment and deploy a solution for long term success,” explains Szucko.
In critical infrastructure, cyber impacts materialize, with more visible consequences, which can cause physical damage or even life losses. To avoid this scenario, Nozomi Networks was chosen to provide Gemina with security technology, with operational environment specific telemetry, visibility, inventory, and anomaly control. All this, with the aim of strengthening the safety of workers to reducing risks and supporting the perpetuity and financial health of customers.
Ricardo Tavares, managing partner, Gemina, explains that the alliance has brought new business opportunities to the company. “In a short period of time, we have already won three large critical infrastructure clients in Brazil, and we are on the way to new projects,” Tavares said.
Recognized as a market leader in OT and IoT security, Nozomi Networks is valued for superior operational visibility, advanced OT and IoT threat detection and strength across deployments. Nozomi Networks solutions support more than 57 million devices in thousands of installations across energy, manufacturing, mining, transportation, utilities, building automation, smart cities and critical infrastructure. Nozomi Networks products are deployable onsite and, in the cloud, and span IT, OT and IoT to automate the hard work of inventorying, visualizing and monitoring industrial control networks through the innovative use of artificial intelligence. Use cases stretch beyond cybersecurity, and include troubleshooting, asset management and predictive maintenance.
