Integration Provides Full-spectrum IT/OT Visibility and Threat Detection Coverage
COMPANY NEWS: Claroty, the global leader in operational technology (OT) security, today announced it is partnering with CrowdStrike, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint and workload protection, on an integration between The Claroty Platform and the CrowdStrike Falcon platform. This integration delivers comprehensive visibility into industrial control system (ICS) networks and endpoints, with a one-stop-shop for information technology (IT) and OT asset information directly within The Claroty Platform.
