Claroty and Yokogawa extend cybersecurity partnership

Claroty and Yokogawa Engineering Asia Pte. Ltd. have announced a partnership that gives Yokogawa customers in Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand access to the Claroty Platform as an added product or service, or embedded within Yokogawa’s managed security services. The two companies’ reseller agreement is designed to further secure process operations against cyber threats. The partnership expands on Claroty and Yokogawa’s reseller agreement in Europe, established last year.

“Our software combined with Yokogawa’s expertise gives organisations … deep visibility into their industrial environments, comprehensive security controls for those environments and actionable insights that allow them to better assess and improve their security posture,” said Eddie Stefanescu, General Manager of APJ at Claroty. “We are delighted with the proven success of this collaboration with Yokogawa to date and look forward to its continued global expansion.”

Assets in industrial environments — including operational technology (OT), Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial IoT (IIoT) — are hard to detect, hard to manage and even harder to secure. Adding to this challenge is the accelerating convergence of IT and OT networks, which enhances the efficiency of industrial operations, but also increases the attack surface available to adversaries. As a result, industrial enterprises and critical infrastructure providers need to be able to detect and respond to cyber threats more quickly and effectively than ever before.

“Yokogawa is continuously investing in secure products and services as part of our commitment to quality, safety, security, reliability and sustainability, with highly competent and experienced resources in Asia,” said Charles Lim, Head of Digital Innovation & Security Solution at Yokogawa Engineering Asia. “Our partnership with Claroty further reinforces process operation cybersecurity protection and will deliver plant security lifecycle services based on the defence-in-depth approach corresponding to international standards for enhanced operational resilience.”

Available as an added product or service or embedded within Yokogawa’s managed security services, the Claroty Platform is claimed to reveal 100% of OT, IoT and IIoT assets on enterprise networks and protect them from vulnerabilities, emerging threats, malicious insiders and unintentional errors. Its threat detection model continually monitors the network for both known and unknown threats, automatically weeds out false positives and gives clear direction on how to take action. This is all enriched by Claroty’s ecosystem of third-party technical integrations, as well as the latest threat signatures and remediation guidance from the Claroty Research Team.
