Tesserent and Claroty partner to secure ANZ OT environments

ASX-listed cybersecurity company Tesserent has signed a non-exclusive reseller partnership with Claroty, the industrial cybersecurity company, strengthening security in utilities, critical national infrastructure and manufacturing environments.

The partnership will help Tesserent deliver strong cyber resilience by protecting customers’ critical systems from cyber threats and downtime, while also improving overall productivity with safer connections and deeper insights into industrial assets. 

Kurt Hansen, Co-CEO of Tesserent, said the Claroty capability will be delivered by Tesserent’s cyber analytics practice, Rivium, which presently provides extensive security monitoring and threat intelligence capability using Splunk.

“We are delighted to add Claroty to Rivium’s portfolio, deepening our capabilities in the operational technology (OT) sector and providing enhanced opportunities for both new and existing customers in Australia and New Zealand,” said Hansen. 

“Additionally, Claroty’s seamless integration with Splunk enables our team of consultants to broaden their capabilities with this new toolset.”

The Claroty Platform reveals 100% of OT, Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial IoT (IIoT) assets on enterprise networks and protects them from vulnerabilities, emerging threats, malicious insiders and unintentional errors. Its resilient threat detection model continually monitors the network for both known and unknown threats, automatically weeds out false positives, and gives clear direction on potential actions. This is all enriched by Claroty’s extensive ecosystem of third-party technical integrations, as well as the latest threat signatures and remediation guidance from the Claroty Research Team.

“Powered by its Continuous Threat Detection (CTD) and Secure Remote Access (SRA) solutions, the Claroty Platform further enhances our strong portfolio by providing a full range of industrial cybersecurity controls that connect seamlessly with customers’ existing infrastructure,” said Hansen. “These technologies will enable Tesserent and Rivium to broaden our OT and Smart Cities cybersecurity services.”

Commenting on the announcement, Nick Nindra, Head of Channels and Alliances, APJ at Claroty, said the industrial economy requires a strong ecosystem of partners in order to secure, detect and manage assets in critical infrastructure environments. 

“Working together, we will protect our mutual customers from attacks on their industrial environments and deliver effective, high-value solutions and services that address their industrial cybersecurity needs,” he said.
