Schneider Electric partners with Claroty on cybersecurity
Manufacturers will have access to real-time ICS/OT network monitoring.
MISSISSUAGA, Ont. — Claroty and Schneider Electric are partnering to address safety and cybersecurity challenges in Canada’s industrial infrastructure.
Claroty, a cybersecurity company headquartered in New York, will market its real-time OT/ICS network monitoring and detection product to Schneider Electric’s energy management and automation customers through the company’s Collaborative Automation Partner Program (CAPP).
Claroty says its platform protects industrial control systems and continuously monitors industrial networks for cyber threats. End users identify anomalies while protecting complex and sensitive industrial networks. Passive-monitoring safely inspects traffic without the disruption that can result from traditional IT security software that uses active queries or requires a footprint on the network.
The system secures remote employee and third party access to critical systems, and records the sessions.
Schneifer Electric, based in Mississauga, Ont., says the partnership adds a key component to its cybersecurity by protecting its connected and edge control products within EcoStruxure (its IoT-enabled, open and interoperable system architecture and platform).
The two companies have conducted rigorous testing to validate the interoperability of their products.
