Claroty Adds New Capabilities to Industrial Security Platform

Industrial cybersecurity firm Claroty on Tuesday announced significant enhancements to its threat detection product, along with technology integrations with several cybersecurity, network infrastructure and industrial automation providers.

Claroty provides an ICS security platform that includes real-time threat detection, continuous vulnerability monitoring, and secure remote access capabilities.

The latest release of the company’s Continuous Threat Detection product introduces virtual zones and OT network segmentation. This helps organizations automate the creation of virtual zones based on how their industrial automation systems are configured and how they are communicating. The new functionality also helps enforce network segmentation through firewall and network access control (NAC) policies.

Another enhancement is multispectral data acquisition, which provides organizations nearly 100% visibility into the assets on their OT network, including what those assets are, what they do, how they are configured, and how they communicate.

Claroty announced that its products can be integrated with technology from several other vendors, including network infrastructure providers (Cisco, Siemens, Palo Alto, CheckPoint), network access control providers (ForeScout, Cisco), SIEM and analytics providers (Splunk, IBM QRadar, RSA), and endpoint detection and remediation providers (TripWire).

“These enhancements to the Claroty Platform fill critical gaps in the industrial cybersecurity market, where industrial enterprises and critical infrastructure providers have been increasingly impacted by cyberattacks targeting OT networks and broad-based attacks which “spillover” from IT networks into the operational environment,” explained Patrick McBride, chief marketing officer at Claroty.

“As our customer base continues to grow very rapidly, we are listening to our customers, working alongside them and developing the innovative capabilities they need to safely, cost-effectively and rapidly develop a robust cybersecurity capability for their most critical, revenue generating systems,” McBride added.

Claroty has raised a total of $93 million, including $60 million in a Series B funding round in June.
