NEW YORK – November 4, 2021 – Claroty, the industrial cybersecurity company, today announced that Forrester Research named the company as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security Solutions, Q4 2021. According to the report, Claroty received the top score in the current offering category of all 12 vendors evaluated by Forrester, as well as the top score in the Market Presence category among the three Leaders. Claroty received the top score possible in 12 of 27 criteria, including ICS protocol support, asset discovery and identification, secure remote access, and partner ecosystem.
According to the report, "ICS/operational technology (OT) security is an emerging technology category that is growing in importance, as evidenced by several high-profile breaches to industrial companies in 2021 that affected fuel and food supplies." The report advises ICS security solutions customers to look for providers that "prioritize delivering operational benefits to the industrial asset owners," "have a heritage grounded in control systems," and "offer broad out-of-the-box integrations with ICS OEMs and other security controls."
The report states, "Claroty leads with ICS visibility and striving to protect emerging technologies," and "excels at handling the myriad of proprietary industrial protocols and asset identification." It continues, "A big differentiator for Claroty is its secure remote access solution that helps ICS asset owners to control, monitor, and audit contractors and consultants maintaining sensitive control systems. Claroty is great for ICS asset owners worldwide seeking best-of-breed visibility into their operational technology environments."
