GUEST RESEARCH: The SolarWinds and Kaseya attacks were devastating intrusions at the heart of IT and network management supply chains. In each case, alleged state actors were able to infiltrate the mechanisms used by the vendors to ship software updates to customers, and infect those updates with malware, including ransomware, according to industrial security company Claroty.
GUEST OPINION by Guilad Regev, SVP Customer Care, Claroty: Whenever there is any discussion around cybersecurity in manufacturing facilities, some common themes emerge. The first is that operational technology (OT), once isolated from the global internet and all its cyber threats, is now increasingly interconnected with IT systems, and therefore exposed to a host of new dangers.
COMPANY NEWS Claroty, a leader in industrial cybersecurity, launches Team82, its new research arm dedicated to threat research reports, policies, and disclosures. It recently published a report that details vulnerabilities in cloud-based management platforms and the need to secure implementations.
Industrial cybersecurity company Claroty has secured $140 million in funding. Claroty plans to use the funding to develop its portfolio and expand into new verticals.
Cybersecurity company Claroty has unveiled a solution that provides customers OT, IoT, and IloT global asset inventory, and manages vulnerabilities affecting those assets, while enhancing its continuous threat detection solution to address cybersecurity needs.
Claroty says the vulnerability in Siemens PLCs may allow an unauthenticated attacker to write arbitrary data and code to protected memory areas or read sensitive data to launch attacks. As a response, Siemens rolls mitigation measures to reduce risks.
Tesserent's partnership with Claroty will help organisations strengthen their security and protect systems from cyber threats and downtime, and at the same time, improve their overall productivity.
Claroty’s Biannual ICS Risk & Vulnerability Report identifies critical infrastructure sectors most at risk and increased attention on security of industrial networks
