Greek security VAD Inter Engineering and Nozomi Networks, a leader in OT and IoT security, have unveiled their collaboration to increase awareness of OT and IoT security importance. Inter Engineering will work with Nozomi Networks, to highlight the significance of network security and visibility with the proliferation of IoT devices across the world and throughout networks. IoT endpoints and systems have become targets for attackers who want to compromise industrial control processes, and maximise the economic benefits of a cyberattack. The impact on large industrial environments can be devastating.
“Cybercriminals are looking to expand their business”, comments Josmaarten Swinkels, Inter Engineering’s CEO. “OT and iOT represent a huge attack surface for them in environments where Cybersecurity awareness is often really just now developing. Together with Nozomi Networks we will be working on exactly that awareness as well as providing the tools to effectively protect the industries involved such as manufacturing, energy provisioning, public infrastructure, health and many more.”
Recognised as the market leader in OT and IoT security, Nozomi Networks is valued for superior operational visibility, advanced OT and IoT threat detection and strength across deployments. Nozomi Networks solutions support more than 57 million devices in thousands of installations across energy, manufacturing, mining, transportation, utilities, building automation, smart cities and critical infrastructure. Nozomi Networks products are deployable onsite and in the cloud and span IT, OT and IoT to automate the hard work of inventorying, visualising and monitoring industrial control networks through the innovative use of artificial intelligence. Use cases stretch beyond cybersecurity, and include trouble shooting, asset management and predictive maintenance
“The attack surface area continues to increase with the explosion of IoT devices and OT networks, so addressing the ever-growing threats targeting OT as well as securing critical infrastructure has never been a higher priority”, said Sergio Leoni, Nozomi Networks Regional Sales Director. “We are pleased to collaborate with Inter Engineering to to bring awareness to OT and IoT security and resilience, with a strong and knowledgable partnership.”
