Industrial Cyber Security Worldwide
Challenges are faced by the industrial automation cybersecurity community. Progressive adoption of operational technology (OT) is expanding the use cases requiring protection. Lack of visibility is undermining the effectiveness of established defenses. Weak boundaries between information technology (IT), operational technology (OT) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) are increasing the need for more integrated and effective cybersecurity solutions.
This strategic partnership will provide Yokogawa Electric Corporation’s global customers with a fully integrated solution, designed to empower industrial operators with unrivaled visibility, threat detection capability and control of their network.
Yokogawa is the leading and world-class solution provider in the industrial automation and control (IA), test and measurement, and aviation and other businesses segments. The IA segment plays a vital role in a wide range of industries including oil, chemicals, natural gas, power, iron and steel, and pharmaceuticals.
CEO of SecurityMatters, Damiano Bolzoni said that this agreement with Yokogawa will create an important strategic partnership in the industrial automation industry, strengthening both companies’ leadership in the global market. Together they will accelerate a cyber-resilience industrial revolution, bringing their powerful cyber security solution worldwide.
