Aug. 15, 2017 – A new partnership between Claroty and Schneider Electric aims to address safety and cybersecurity challenges for the world’s industrial infrastructure.

Under the terms of the agreement, Claroty will market its real-time OT/ICS network monitoring and detection solution to Schneider Electric’s customers through the company’s Collaborative Automation Partner Program (CAPP).
 
The Claroty platform strives to protect industrial control systems and monitor industrial networks for cyber threats. With secure remote access, asset owners can employ policies to control remote employee and third party access to critical systems and record the sessions.

“Continuous threat detection creates a detailed inventory of industrial network assets, identifies misconfigurations, monitors traffic between assets and finds anomalies that may indicate the presence of a malicious actor. Context rich alerts provide plant and security personnel with actionable insights for efficient investigation, response and recovery,” explains Claroty.
 
According to the parties, the deal adds a “key” component to Schneider Electric’s end-to-end cybersecurity offerings by protecting its connected products and edge control offerings within the company’s EcoStruxure architecture. EcoStruxure is Schneider Electric’s IoT-enabled, open and interoperable system architecture and platform.

“At Schneider Electric we recognize the urgent need to assist our customers in enhancing their safety and cybersecurity programs,” said David Doggett, Senior Director Cybersecurity, Industry Business, Schneider Electric. “One way we are addressing this need is through partnering with Claroty to provide real-time network monitoring and anomaly-detection.”   
 
“We have set off on a mission to bring rapid and long overdue change to the cybersecurity of industrial control networks,” said Amir Zilberstein, Claroty CEO. “Partnering with Schneider Electric and delivering our solutions within its comprehensive approach to cybersecurity through its EcoStruxure architecture will help drive the broadest reach and most immediate impact to industrial companies.”
