Digital transformation provider, Atos, inked a partnership pact with operational technology visibility provider Nozomi Networks Inc.
The two firms will work together to provide industrial enterprises real-time operational technology (OT) network visibility, data analysis and cybersecurity protection.
The joint solution will help customers decrease total cost of ownership while implementing analytics and cybersecurity within industrial networks. It improves the time to results for critical infrastructure analytics to help drive business value and innovation across IT and OT environments.
Industry studies indicate the number of enterprise security breaches continues to grow. Globally, more than six out of ten enterprises have been breached in the past few years. Within ICS, three out of four customers expect a cybersecurity attack will happen to them.
“Industrial customers require big data analytics that can span both IT and OT to not only improve the security and safety of their critical operational infrastructure, but also to extend the value of those assets through predictive and prescriptive maintenance, said Jerome Sandrini, head of big data and security at Atos North America. “Working with Nozomi Networks allows us to take advantage of their artificial intelligence-powered software to map, monitor and identify threats in some of the largest industrial installations around the world.”
Now in its fourth generation of technology, Nozomi Networks’ SCADAguardian provides real-time ICS monitoring, industrial network visualization, hybrid ICS threat and anomaly detection, asset inventory and vulnerability assessment, all through a single solution.
Atos Codex analyzes structured and unstructured data from different sources, such as operational networks, and provides insight to users across the business.
Combined with Nozomi solutions, Codex will provide customers with real-time information.
“Atos is respected around the world for delivering technology that transforms business and drives a desired outcome that enables customer success,” said Edgard Capdevielle, chief executive of Nozomi Networks. “We are joining forces to tackle the cybersecurity challenges and data-powered business decisions that are surfacing as IT and OT infrastructures converge.”
