Claroty joins World Economic Forum as Global Innovator

Claroty, the cyber-physical systems protection company, has announced it has joined the World Economic Forum's Global Innovators Community, an invitation-only group of the world's most promising start-ups and scale-ups at the forefront of ethical technological and business model innovation. 

As a Global Innovator, Claroty will engage with the Forum’s Centre for Cybersecurity, and the company’s CEO Yaniv Vardi will attend the annual meeting in Davos in January 2023.

The World Economic Forum provides the Global Innovators Community with a platform to engage with the public- and private-sector leaders. Companies invited to become Global Innovators will engage with relevant Forum platforms to help define the global agenda on key issues. By contributing to the Centre for Cybersecurity platform, Claroty and other partners are leading the global response to overcome the current crisis and build future resiliency.

“We are pleased to have Claroty join the Global Innovators Community and we look forward to the team’s contributions to the Centre for Cybersecurity,” says Verena Kuhn, Global Innovators Community Head, World Economic Forum. 

“Claroty will be engaging in several workstreams that look to enhance cyber resilience by developing and scaling forward-looking solutions and promoting effective practices across digital ecosystems.”

The World Economic Forum is an international organisation which engages the foremost political, business, cultural, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas. It was established in 1971 as a not-for-profit foundation and is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. 

At the annual meeting in Davos, Vardi will join leaders from government, business, and civil society to address the state of the world and discuss priorities for the year ahead. 

Earlier this year, Claroty was one of 18 companies that came together to take a Cyber Resilience Pledge, which aims to mobilise global commitment towards strengthening cyber resilience across industry ecosystems.

Claroty empowers organisations to secure cyber-physical systems across industrial, healthcare, and commercial environments: the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT). The company's unified platform integrates with customers' existing infrastructure to provide a full range of controls for visibility, risk and vulnerability management, threat detection, and secure remote access. 

“We are honored to join the World Economic Forum’s Global Innovators Community and partner with world leaders to address systemic security risks and threats, especially those facing critical infrastructure,” says Vardi. 

“Our industry is at a pivotal juncture, as the world has woken up to the staggering financial and societal repercussions that can occur when critical infrastructure is disrupted. On top of this, business leaders continue to deal with the impact of the pandemic, the economic recession, and geopolitical tensions, while determining how to operate efficiently and securely. It is against this backdrop that organisations must strive to remain resilient despite unprecedented and unpredictable issues."
