Belden/Tripwire and Claroty announce strategic partnership

October 1, 2018 –Belden and its Tripwire brand announced a strategic partnership with Claroty. This partnership will provide integrated top-floor to shop-floor cybersecurity solutions that address all aspects of an industrial cybersecurity strategy, providing visibility to all assets so that protective countermeasures can be implemented. The solutions will integrate governance and management of both IT and OT networks.

Tripwire Industrial Visibility is the first integrated solution between Tripwire and Claroty that will provide visibility, monitoring and threat mitigation across the complete OT landscape.

In addition to introducing the Tripwire Industrial Visibility Solution, the partnership between Belden and Claroty seeks to extend Tripwire’s automated asset discovery reach with visibility into industrial assets inclusive of their communication patterns, including, but not limited to programmable logic controllers (PLCs), remote terminal units (RTUs) and distributed control systems (DCS). The companies’ combined technologies will provide visibility into and threat monitoring across IP and non-IP network segments within industrial control system (ICS) networks.

Tripwire’s current data collection approaches for both IT and OT for asset discovery, configuration change detection, integrity monitoring, vulnerability management (VM), log management, and configuration assessment for ICS cybersecurity frameworks will be complemented by Claroty's passive data collection and threat monitoring approach. This will enable full visibility for all OT related assets from field process/safety instrumented systems to plant-wide operational supervisory control levels (levels 0 to 3.5 of the Purdue model).

Claroty's capabilities will extend Tripwire’s Industrial Suite, providing increased visibility into the field control and I/O levels of OT networks by pinpointing which industrial assets have known vulnerabilities and pinpointing potentially malicious behavior that can leave networks exposed.

Using Claroty’s virtual zones capability, which automatically creates logical groups of industrial assets based on the communications patterns between assets, customers can implement virtual segmentation and will have the information to create advanced ICS protocol specific deep packet inspection rules for Belden firewalls required for simplified micro-segmentation.
