Nozomi Networks & NetWitness partner for advanced cyber security solutions
Thu, 14th Dec 2023

Nozomi Networks and NetWitness are teaming up to offer advanced cybersecurity solutions for Operational Technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) environments across critical infrastructure systems. As leaders in OT, IoT, and critical infrastructure security, as well as enterprise-grade cyber threat detection and response, Nozomi Networks and NetWitness aim to deliver improved security and heightened visibility across OT and IT solutions.

The integration of OT data within their combined solutions will not only enhance the security operations centre's (SOC) efficacy but also reinforce protection against nuanced cyber threats. "A key differentiator for NetWitness is its radical visibility into an organisation's data, no matter what type logs, network, or endpoints -- or where it resides on-premises, in the cloud, or hybrid," says Tod Ewasko, Chief Product Officer for NetWitness. He further notes that incorporating OT and IoT data into their threat detection, investigation, and response functions procures a fortified defence against attack avenues of growing significance.

Nozomi Networks, recognised as the market frontrunner in OT and IoT security, supports over 102 million devices across a multitude of installations, including energy, manufacturing, mining, transportation, utilities, building automation, smart cities, and critical infrastructure. Noted for its superior operational visibility and advanced threat detection, the company's products, available for on-site deployment or cloud-based application, utilise AI to automate inventorying, visualising, and monitoring of industrial control networks.

NetWitness, a protector of some of the world's largest and most security-conscious organisations, provides an extensive and flexible platform capable of pinpointing sophisticated attacks. The consolidated visibility, robust contextualisation, and automated insights granted via NetWitness assist security teams in navigating any complex threats.

The burgeoning flow of connections and data between OT, IoT and IT channels is pushing organisations to seek more effective methods of managing and monitoring their security defences holistically. Chet Namboodri, Nozomi Networks Senior Vice President of Alliances and Channel Sales, states, "We're excited to partner with NetWitness to extend their customers’ access to broader-reaching solutions for detection and response across their IT, IoT networks and OT/operational systems."
