“The industry-wide transformation taking place today enables our customers to improve their business performance in ways they never imagined, but it requires them to expand connectivity across their operations, so they can extract, contextualize and apply new levels of rich data,” said Nathalie Marcotte, senior vice president of Industry Services and Cybersecurity at Schneider Electric.

“However, extending connectivity also extends the attack surface for would-be cyber criminals. Therefore, cybersecurity can no longer be an afterthought. There’s too much at stake, financially and operationally. By adding Nozomi Networks to our family of partners, we strengthen our ability to help customers understand and eliminate risks and threats to their operations and assets, while reducing potential impact on their business success,” Marcotte added.

Nozomi is not the only cybersecurity solutions provider that has teamed up with Schneider Electric. The list also includes Entrust Datacard, Claroty, McAfee, and Waterfall Security.
