Tesserent, Australia’s largest ASX-listed cybersecurity company (ASX:TNT), becomes reseller partnership with Claroty, the industrial cybersecurity company, strengthening security in utilities, critical national infrastructure and manufacturing environments.
The partnership will help Tesserent deliver strong cyber resilience by protecting customers’ critical systems from cyber threats and downtime, while also improving overall productivity with safer connections and deeper insights into industrial assets.
Kurt Hansen, Co-CEO of Tesserent, said the Claroty capability will be delivered by Tesserent’s cyber analytics practice, Rivium, which presently provides extensive security monitoring and threat intelligence capability using Splunk.
“We are delighted to add Claroty to Rivium’s portfolio, deepening our capabilities in the OT sector and providing enhanced opportunities for both new and existing customers in Australia and New Zealand. Claroty provides the leading industrial cybersecurity platform driving visibility, continuity and resiliency in the industrial economy. Additionally, Claroty’s seamless integration with Splunk enables our team of consultants to broaden their capabilities with this new toolset,” he says.
The Claroty Platform reveals 100% of operational technology (OT), Internet of Things (IoT), and industrial IoT (IIoT) assets on enterprise networks and protects them from vulnerabilities, emerging threats, malicious insiders, and unintentional errors. Its resilient threat detection model continually monitors the network for both known and unknown threats, automatically weeds out false positives, and gives clear direction on how to take action. This is all enriched by Claroty’s extensive ecosystem of third-party technical integrations, as well as the latest threat signatures and remediation guidance from the renowned Claroty Research Team.
“Powered by its Continuous Threat Detection (CTD) and Secure Remote Access (SRA) solutions, the Claroty Platform further enhances our strong portfolio by providing a full range of industrial cybersecurity controls that connect seamlessly with customers’ existing infrastructure. These technologies will enable Tesserent and Rivium to broaden our OT and Smart Cities cybersecurity services and provide world-class security monitoring and threat detection services,” says Mr. Hansen
Commenting on the announcement, Mr. Nick Nindra, Head of Channels and Alliances, APJ at Claroty, says, “The industrial economy requires a strong ecosystem of partners in order to secure, detect, and manage assets in critical infrastructure environments. We are delighted to partner with Tesserent, Australia’s largest ASX-listed cybersecurity company, who will be pivotal to our success in bringing our strong capabilities in OT visibility, threat detection, risk and vulnerability management, and secure remote access to Australian and New Zealand customers.
“Tesserent’s Rivium team are experts in cyber analytics, machine generated data analysis and threat intelligence. Working together we will protect our mutual customers from attacks on their industrial environments and deliver effective, high-value solutions and services that address their industrial cybersecurity needs,” he says.
Tesserent’s security analytics practice, Rivium has developed extensive capabilities in security monitoring and threat detection with Splunk Enterprise Security (SIEM), Splunk User Behaviour Analytics (UBA) and Splunk Phantom (SOAR).
The integration between Claroty and Splunk extracts OT baselines, events, and alerts identified by Claroty CTD and populates them within Splunk Enterprise Security (ES). This approach will help customers gain unified visibility across an organisation’s entire IT and OT portfolio, and manage alerts from a single viewpoint within Splunk ES and extend existing SOC workflows and capabilities into OT.
