“The free flow of connections and data between OT, Internet of Things (IoT) and information technology (IT) is driving organisations to look for better ways to holistically monitor and manage their security defences across the entire attack surface,” says Chet Namboodri, Nozomi Networks senior vice president of alliances & channel sales.
Nozomi Networks and NetWitness are partnering to deliver what they claim is unified security and visibility across OT and IT solutions. Integrating operational technology (OT) data greatly improves the effectiveness of the security operations centre (SOC).
“A key differentiator for NetWitness is its radical visibility into an organisation’s data, no matter what type – logs, network, or endpoints -- or where it resides – on-premises, in the cloud, or hybrid,” said
From a security perspective, Tod Ewasko, chief product officer for NetWitness, says integrating critical OT and IoT data into the threat detection, investigation, and response functions increases the effectiveness of the SOC and protects an increasingly important avenue for attacks.
