Claroty and Yokogawa Engineering Asia Partner to Secure Process Operations
Partnership Delivers Industrial Cybersecurity Solutions and Expertise to Critical Infrastructure Organizations in Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand
SINGAPORE – 15 April 2021 –Claroty, the industrial cybersecurity company, and Yokogawa Engineering Asia Pte. Ltd., a leading provider of industrial automation and instrumentation solutions, today announced their partnership that gives Yokogawa customers in Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand access to the Claroty Platform as an added product or service, or embedded within Yokogawa’s managed security services. The two companies’ reseller agreement is designed to further secure process operations against cyber threats. The partnership expands upon Claroty and Yokogawa’s reseller agreement in Europe, established last year.
“Our software combined with Yokogawa’s expertise gives organizations like IRPC Public Company Limited Thailand deep visibility into their industrial environments, comprehensive security controls for those environments, and actionable insights that allow them to better assess and improve their security posture,” said Eddie Stefanescu, General Manager of APJ at Claroty. “We are delighted with the proven success of this collaboration with Yokogawa to date and look forward to its continued global expansion.”
Assets in industrial environments – including operational technology (OT), Internet of Things (IoT), and industrial IoT (IIoT) – are hard to detect, hard to manage, and even harder to secure. Adding to this challenge is the accelerating convergence of IT and OT networks, which enhances the efficiency of industrial operations, but also increases the attack surface available to adversaries. As a result, industrial enterprises and critical infrastructure providers need to be able to detect and respond to cyber threats more quickly and effectively than ever before.
“Yokogawa is continuously investing in secure products and services as part of our commitment to quality, safety, security, reliability, and sustainability, with highly competent and experienced resources in Asia,” said Charles Lim, Head of Digital Innovation & Security Solution at Yokogawa Engineering Asia. “Our partnership with Claroty further reinforces process operation cyber security protection and will deliver plant security lifecycle services based on the defence-in-depth approach corresponding to international standards for enhanced operational resilience.”
Available as an added product or service or embedded within Yokogawa’s managed security services, the Claroty Platform reveals 100% of OT, IoT, and IIoT assets on enterprise networks and protects them from vulnerabilities, emerging threats, malicious insiders, and unintentional errors. Its resilient threat detection model continually monitors the network for both known and unknown threats, automatically weeds out false positives, and gives clear direction on how to take action. This is all enriched by Claroty’s extensive ecosystem of third-party technical integrations, as well as the latest threat signatures and remediation guidance from the renowned Claroty Research Team.
