Network monitoring provider, SecurityMatters, inked a strategic partnership with Yokogawa Electric Corporation in an effort to boost cyber resilience for global industrial and critical infrastructure.

Progressive adoption of operational technology (OT) is expanding the need for manufacturers to adopt greater levels of protection. Lack of visibility is undermining the effectiveness of established defenses. Weak boundaries between information technology (IT), operational technology (OT) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) are increasing the need for more integrated and effective cybersecurity solutions.

Yokogawa is a supplier in the industrial automation and control (IA), test and measurement, and aviation and other businesses segments. The IA segment plays a vital role in a wide range of industries including oil, chemicals, natural gas, power, iron and steel, and pharmaceuticals.

After a competitive review process, Yokogawa selected SecurityMatters as their partner to incorporate its technology into their Industrial automation portfolio of products.

SecurityMatters’ SilentDefense is an industrial control system (ICS) network monitoring and situational awareness platform. SilentDefense passively analyzes industrial network communications, provides information about network assets and alerts in real-time for any threat to operational continuity.

This strategic partnership will provide Yokogawa users with a solution, designed to empower industrial operators with unrivaled visibility, threat detection capability and control of their network.
