Delivering world-class security to some of the globe's leading industrial, healthcare, and commercial enterprises is only one facet of Claroty's mission to secure the technology that sustains our lives.
Another equally important aspect to our mission is our commitment to not only support and advise customers and partners, but also to contribute to the community at large. To that end, in the past year alone, Claroty has been an integral part of a number of initiatives:
We are a founding member of the Operational Technology Cyber Coalition, whose purpose is to promote vendor-neutral cybersecurity standards to help lock down critical infrastructure in the U.S.
Claroty was also in the first group of industrial cybersecurity vendors to be part of CISA's expanded Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative for Industrial Control Systems (JCDC-ICS).
Our Team82 researchers have contributed a number of freely available security tools to the community, in addition to disclosing more than 300 vulnerabilities that have been patched or mitigated; these disclosures have made the overall Extended Internet of Things (XIoT) domain safer for all.
Today, I am excited to share that Claroty is now a formal member of the IT Sector Coordinating Council (IT-SCC), an entity that coordinates with the U.S. government to enhance critical infrastructure cybersecurity. Claroty will be working alongside other industry partners, as well as the Department of Homeland Security and key government agencies to improve the cybersecurity resilience of the 16 critical infrastructure sectors.
Relentless cyberattacks have targeted organizations of all sizes across the 16 sectors. Ransomware has continued unabated, as criminals and some nation-states use it not only as a means of profit, but as a shield for deeper network incursions that involve data theft and access to sensitive systems on the network. Supply chain attacks have also threatened businesses worldwide; one successful supply chain breach may collaterally impact thousands of enterprises.
Within organizations where downtime is intolerable, such as healthcare or manufacturing, resilience against these disruptive and sometimes destructive attacks is a mandate. Claroty's expertise and participation in these industry coalitions serves to strengthen the overall security posture of the companies and people we serve.
