Claroty appoints Wavelink as sole distributor for entire Australian business

Wavelink has announced that cybersecurity solutions company Claroty has awarded Wavelink the sole distributorship of its entire Australian business.

In 2022, Wavelink was appointed as the distributor for Medigate by Claroty, a dedicated cyber-physical systems protection platform for healthcare environments. Now, Wavelink’s role expands to encompass commercial, industrial and healthcare business segments in Australia.

For customers of Claroty, this will mean more local support. In line with the Australian Government’s 2023–2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy released in 2023, the cyber risk facing Australian companies is only expected to grow in 2024. At present, one cybercrime is reported every six minutes, with ransomware alone causing up to $3 billion in damages to the Australian economy every year.1

As the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) continues to increase the prevalence and sophistication of cyber attacks, and digital transformation accelerates across all industries, the risk to Australian organisations has never been greater. This trend is further compounded by the current geopolitical environment, which is presenting the most formidable challenges in recent memory.

Claroty and Wavelink are committed to providing Australian companies with high-quality cybersecurity solutions and technical support to address the increasing risks associated with AI, ML and the ongoing digital transformation across industries.

“Claroty is delighted to expand its partnership with Wavelink, who has a proven track record in the enterprise technology space,” said Nick Nindra, Claroty’s regional vice president of channels and alliances, Asia-Pacific and Japan. “Through this ongoing partnership, Claroty will bring its strong capabilities in protecting the cyber-physical assets to more organisations in Australia.”

“Operational technology (OT) security is a major focus for Wavelink and the expanded relationship with Claroty enables Wavelink to deliver OT and Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) solutions to existing and new partners across a range of verticals,” said Ilan Rubin, chief executive officer, Wavelink. “Claroty’s alignment to the company’s existing vendors and its global leadership of the OT security space make Claroty a perfect and exciting addition to Wavelink’s portfolio.”
