Acquisition or Partnership

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced that it has reached agreement with Nozomi Networks Inc, a developer and distributor of operational technology security solutions, to jointly pursue OT security initiatives including marketing and technical development. As part of the agreement, Mitsubishi Electric has acquired an equity stake in Nozomi Networks.

Operational Technology Security

Mitsubishi Electric will integrate its factory-automation (FA) equipment and OT security solutions with Nozomi Networks' OT network-visualization and intrusion-detection technologies to create OT security solutions that enhance both security and continuous system operation. In addition, comprehensive OT security measures ranging from visualization/intrusion detection to network defense and remote access will be realized by incorporating the products and technologies of Mitsubishi Electric partners TXOne (since December 2023) and Dispel (since February 2024).

By providing more secure environments for the use of OT data, Mitsubishi Electric aims to accelerate digital manufacturing using data throughout entire product lifecycles, from design and installation to operation and maintenance, and thereby strengthen the company's Circular Digital-Engineering business.
