Nozomi Networks Inc. released Guardian Community Edition, a tool designed to help security and risk management teams take the first step in expanding their visibility to include OT and IoT cybersecurity.
Leveraging the technology used in Nozomi Networks’ cybersecurity platform, Guardian Community Edition (Guardian CE) gives users visibility into OT and IoT assets.
By 2021, 70 percent of OT security will be managed directly by the CIO, CISO or CSO, according to Gartner Research. By 2023, 75 percent of organizations will restructure risk and security governance to address new cyber-physical systems (CPS) and converged IT, OT, Internet of Things (IoT) and physical security needs.
From traditional industrial and OT operators to airports, sports entertainment venues and smart cities, organizations across a broad range of industries are consolidating their IT, OT and IoT efforts.
“Organizations across a spectrum of industries are converging IT, OT and IoT efforts to improve business processes, deliver better customer experiences and gain a competitive edge,” said Nozomi Networks Co-founder and Chief Product Office, Andrea Carcano. “Cybersecurity executives and their teams are challenged to gain visibility into these networks. But having visibility is the first step to securing them. We developed Guardian Community Edition to give the community a safe way to begin expanding their security footprint to include OT and IoT assets in their networks.”
The functionality offered within the free Guardian Community Edition represents a subset of the full technology suite available from Nozomi Networks. As a free tool, it is designed to help organizations take the first step of gaining visibility into their OT and IoT networks without disrupting their operational networks.
