Rockwell Automation Expands Its Threat Detection Services Globally

Cybersecurity services powered by Claroty protect supply chains from unknown threats and provide operational benefits

MILWAUKEE, June 27, 2019 — More than half of all respondents to an LNS Research survey said their industrial facility has experienced a cybersecurity breach. To help prevent such incidents and combat the unpredictable threats that cause them, industrial companies around the world can now manage cyber risk in their operations using the Rockwell Automation Threat Detection Services powered by the Claroty threat detection platform. 

Rockwell Automation recently expanded the services globally to help more companies combat the unknown nature of today’s rapidly evolving industrial cybersecurity threats.

“A scary aspect of security threats is what you don’t know about them – what techniques they’ll use, what attack vector they’ll leverage, what vulnerabilities they’ll exploit,” said Umair Masud, manager security services portfolio, Rockwell Automation. “Our Threat Detection Services combine our innate understanding of industrial automation with Claroty’s trusted OT network visibility. The services can give companies peace of mind by protecting not only one facility but their entire supply chain from unpredictable threats.”

The Threat Detection Services help safeguard connected operations in three key ways:

  • Identify and Protect: Identifying all industrial control networked assets, and their vulnerabilities, to help companies know what to protect
  • Detect: Monitoring networks for not only known threats but, more importantly, anomalous traffic or behaviors to alert companies of a security incident – possibly before it even happens
  • Response and Recovery: Developing plans for containing, eradicating and recovering from attacks to keep operations running or more quickly return to a fully operational state

Companies that have used the Threat Detection Services have also discovered operational benefits. For example, collected asset data can help uncover risks like obsolete technology, outdated firmware and spare parts shortages.

The Claroty threat detection platform creates an inventory of a user’s industrial network assets, monitors traffic between them and analyzes communications at their deepest level. Detected anomalies are reported to plant and security personnel with actionable insights.

“The Claroty platform, used within the Threat Detection Services, can accelerate a company’s journey to more connected and digitally driven operations,” said Amir Zilberstein, co-founder and CEO, Claroty. “Most critically, the platform can help companies detect and quickly respond to threats that bypass their security controls. But it can also give companies a deeper understanding of their industrial assets and improve their ability to keep operations running.”

Claroty is a Rockwell Automation Encompass Product Partner in the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork program.
