“TÜV Rheinland is a natural partner for SecurityMatters, with both companies having vast experience with industrial clients and global footprint,” said Damiano Bolzoni, chief executive at SecurityMatters. “This partnership will help our clients enhance their Industrial Control Systems (ICS) security monitoring and management capabilities and offer an end-to-end solution or building Industrial Cyber Resilience.”

Organizations operating industrial facilities have a responsibility to monitor, detect and mitigate cybersecurity attacks in order to maintain the safety, integrity and availability of their plant which, if compromised, could have a severe and detrimental impact.

Leading cybersecurity standards for industrial control systems emphasize that systems operators should have cybersecurity monitoring solutions in place.

Along those lines, TÜV Rheinland has decades of experience in testing and certifying industrial systems and has worked across some of the most challenging industries. Its services can provide end-to-end visibility, threat detection and continuous vulnerability assessment for OT and industrial cybersecurity risks.

“SecurityMatters has a global customer base, with partners and customers in all critical industries. Through the strategic partnership with SecurityMatters we will enhance our services to detect and monitor cyber threats in Industrial Control Systems and ultimately improve the safe operation of our clients’ most critical systems in North America,” said Anish Srivastava, president and chief executive at TUV Rheinland OpenSky.
