Rockwell Automation and Claroty announce partnership to build cybersecurity solutions

February 15, 2017 — Known industrial security weaknesses are increasingly turning into actual attacks, causing producers around the globe to search for solutions to help protect operations. To meet this need, industrial security software provider Claroty and Rockwell Automation will work together to combine their security products and services into future, packaged security offerings.

After a competitive review process, Rockwell Automation selected Claroty for the company’s anomaly-detection software purpose built for industrial network security. The software creates a detailed inventory of an end user’s industrial network assets, monitors traffic between those assets, and analyzes communications at their deepest level. Detected anomalies are reported to plant and security personnel with actionable insights to help enable efficient investigation, response and recovery.

A key characteristic of the Claroty software is its ability to explore the deepest level of industrial network protocols without adversely impacting the system. This enables end users to identify even the smallest anomalies while protecting complex and sensitive industrial networks. Traditional IT security software often uses active queries and requires a footprint on the network, which can ultimately disrupt operations. However, the Claroty platform uses a passive-monitoring approach to safely inspect traffic without the risk of disruption. 

Additionally, Claroty has joined the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork Encompass program. The Encompass Partner program is a product reference program that helps customers quickly locate products that solve their application challenges.
