Eindhoven, The Netherlands and Saarbrücken, Germany – July 2, 2018 – SecurityMatters, a global leader in industrial control systems (ICS) network assessment and protection, and KORAMIS GmbH, one of the leading providers of holistic solutions in the area of industrial IT security, have announced a strategic partnership today. Together, they will enable industrial automation customers to immediately detect and respond to increasing cyber security threats.
In the last two decades, technology has massively evolved, transforming the nature of industrial and manufacturing operations. The opportunities offered by digitization and the Internet of Things (IoT) in industrial automation represent a competitive advantage in today's industrial landscape. However, for asset owners, this also means that they are facing new challenges. Current information technology (IT) security practices, such as network segmentation and usage of security information and event management (SIEM) platforms, need to be complemented with technologies that enable real-time asset visibility and advanced threat detection to operational technology (OT).
SecurityMatters’ mission is to provide ICS asset owners with best-in-class industrial cyber resilience technology, through the most advanced and mature OT network monitoring and intelligence platform, SilentDefense.
KORAMIS GmbH offers cross-industry, customer-specific solutions for industrial security processes, automation, process and network control. The bundling of competencies in industrial automation and industrial software, taking into account the requirements of industrial security, make KORAMIS a leader in the ongoing process of digital transformation to provide holistic market solutions for Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.
“Through this partnership we are expanding our portfolio with a market leading solution that will enable us to strengthen the cyber resiliency of our industrial customers. Our customers will have access to advanced threat analysis, network monitoring and integrated visualization behind a single pane of glass”, said Michael Krammel, CEO at KORAMIS GmbH.
