Schneider Electric Integrates Claroty Cybersecurity Platform

June 10, 2022
Schneider Electric and Claroty collaborate to enhance industrial cybersecurity.

Schneider Electric announces its collaboration with Claroty, the security company for cyber-physical systems across industrial, healthcare and commercial environments. Announced at ARC Forum Orlando, the agreement reportedly builds on an existing relationship between the two companies. Schneider Electric says it will now integrate The Claroty Platform into their offering, enabling them to better address new cybersecurity concerns, including protection, safety and insurance for industrial customers. 

Fueled by the competitive advantages of digital transformation, more industrial enterprises are connecting previously isolated operational technology (OT) to corporate IT networks, while also introducing new IoT and industrial IoT assets into these converged OT/IT environments, according to Schneider Electric. As a result, industrial systems have become more exposed to new kinds of cyber threats with serious implications for physical safety and the environment. The nature and scale of these threats must be a priority in every aspect of the industrial process, says Schneider Electric.

“We see cybersecurity as a key differentiator,” says Jay Abdallah, VP cybersecurity services, Schneider Electric, in a press release from the company. “Through our collaboration with Claroty, we are reinforcing its importance to the industrial process and taking active steps to mitigate new challenges. We are entering a new era of openness in the industrial world and the same is true for cybersecurity.”

The Claroty Platform reveals and protects all OT, IoT and IIoT assets while detecting and enabling response to the earliest indicators of potential threats, according to Schneider Electric. With flexible and rapid deployment options, a vast integration ecosystem and robust API, the platform integrates with customers’ existing technology stacks and is universally compatible with their existing workflows regardless of scale, architecture or programmatic maturity. The platform reportedly also offers fully integrated secure remote access and remote incident management capabilities spanning the entire incident lifecycle.
