Claroty equips pharma & biotech companies with the industrial cybersecurity controls needed to protect their OT, IoT, IIoT, and BMS assets and all other cyber-physical systems (CPS) against threats ranging from ransomware, to IP theft, and more.
The COVID-19 pandemic, widespread supply chain disruptions, frequent M&A activity, evolving regulatory and policy landscapes, and rising life expectancies are among the factors driving digital transformation for pharma & biotech companies. From new advancements that expedite vaccine production and distribution, to sensors that share real-time data across storage silos, processing tanks, and ERP platforms to optimize supply chain management, to robotic CIP and container handling systems that reduce resource waste and regulatory complexity while enhancing sanitation and safety — the benefits of automation, IT/OT connectivity, and cyber-physical systems (CPS) are why their once-manual, analog counterparts are becoming relics of the past.
However, for many pharma & biotech companies, these benefits are outpaced by industrial cybersecurity risks. This unfortunate reality has repeatedly manifested as ransomware and other cyber attacks that exploit security weaknesses in the CPS on which the availability, integrity, and safety of pharma & biotech operations and products rely. Mitigating these risks to, ultimately, gain cyber and operational resilience requires a new approach that extends far beyond traditional, IT-oriented security solutions.
Securing the OT environments that underpin pharma & biotech development, production, storage, packaging, and distribution operations requires that companies follow three key principles:
A comprehensive inventory of all OT, IoT, IIoT, and BMS assets — and all other CPS — that underpin your OT environment across each plant is the foundation of effective industrial cybersecurity. It’s also why Claroty has long prioritized our ability to deliver the industry-leading visibility that our pharma & biotech customers need to secure their most critical assets and operations.
Since most CPS use proprietary protocols and legacy systems, they are simply incompatible with traditional IT solutions — but that doesn’t mean they have no place in OT. Rather than urge customers to expand their already-extensive tech stacks, Claroty integrates with them. As a result, our pharma & biotech customers can simply extend their existing tools and workflows from IT to OT.
Unlike their IT counterparts, most OT environments lack essential cybersecurity controls and consistent governance. Claroty eliminates this gap. After providing visibility into all CPS and integrating your IT tools and workflows with OT, Claroty extends your IT controls to OT — unifying your security governance and driving all use cases on your journey to cyber and operational resilience.
The Claroty journey to cyber resilience empowers pharma & biotech companies to extend — and further optimize — the following cybersecurity use cases and governance areas from IT to OT:
Claroty’s automated asset discovery capabilities create a centralized inventory that serves as the foundation for all cyber resilience use cases, empowering pharma & biotech companies with real-time visibility into all OT, IoT, and BMS assets and all other CPS throughout your OT environment.
Claroty extends your IT vulnerability & risk management controls to OT by automatically identifying, assessing, and recommending remedial actions for all CPS vulnerabilities in your manufacturing environment, enabling you to prioritize and implement mitigations to minimize lateral risk transfer.
Claroty hardens the critical OT environments in pharma & biotech against threats by automatically defining network segmentation policies to be easily enforced by your firewall and NAC solutions, as well as providing secure remote access purpose-built with controls for internal and third-party OT users.
Claroty enables pharma & biotech companies to continuously monitor for and respond to the earliest indicators of threats — ranging from ransomware, to IP theft, to equipment failures, to malicious insiders — before they impact production, safety, sanitation, compliance, or other assets.
The Claroty journey to operational resilience empowers pharma & biotech companies to extend and optimize the following security and operational use cases and governance areas from your IT to OT environments:
Operational resilience requires full visibility into all CPS in your OT environment. Our automated asset discovery capabilities deliver just this — empowering pharma & biotech companies with the complete, real-time visibility you need as the foundation for all operational resilience use cases.
Change management is essential to governance, compliance, maintenance, and procurement decisions enterprise-wide. Claroty empowers MoC programs across IT and OT with continuous asset and operational monitoring and flexible reporting to inform these and related decisions.
Claroty helps pharma & biotech companies optimize asset management by leveraging in-depth asset insights and an enriched CMDB via ready-made integrations to monitor for asset updates, enable SLA compliance, and optimize supply chain management and procurement.
Claroty Secure Remote Access (SRA) enables pharma & biotech plant staff and vendors to access and service OT assets remotely, easily, and securely. SRA also enforces role-based controls and proactive monitoring, among other best practices, minimizing risks posed by remote users.
Complying with recommended standards and required regulations is a notoriously complex, ever-evolving endeavor for pharma & biotech companies. Claroty simplifies compliance not only with respect to cybersecurity but also in adjacent areas — from safety, to sanitation, to quality assurance, to supply chain, and more. Highlights include:
Claroty’s support for the full cyber-physical systems security journey supports and simplifies compliance with the requirements set forth by FSMA, NIS 2.0, RCE, SOCI/SLACIP, FDA cGMPs, and many more.
Compliance with the following recommended practices and standards is enabled by the controls offered by Claroty’s portfolio: CISA CGPs, NIST CSF, ISO 27001, CIS, NIPP, U.S. Bioeconomy Executive Order, and many more.
