Company and Product News

Rockwell Automation announced new Threat Detection Services powered by the Claroty threat detection platform.  These services are designed to help industrial companies better manage cyber risk in their operations and prevent a cybersecurity breach at their industrial facilities, as well as combat the unpredictable threats that cause them.  Rockwell Automation expanded these services globally to help more companies better combat the unknown nature of today’s rapidly evolving industrial cybersecurity threats.

The Threat Detection Services help to safeguard connected operations in three key ways:

  • Identify and Protect: Identifying all industrial control networked assets, and their vulnerabilities, to help companies know what to protect
  • Detect: Monitoring networks for not only known threats but also anomalous traffic or behaviors to alert companies of a security incident,  possibly before it even happens
  • Response and Recovery: Developing plans for containing, eradicating and recovering from attacks to keep operations running or more quickly return to a fully operational state

Companies that use the Threat Detection Services can also realize additional operational benefits.  For example, collected asset data can help uncover risks, such as obsolete technology, outdated firmware, and spare parts shortages. 

The Claroty threat detection platform helps to create an inventory of a user’s industrial network assets, monitors traffic between them, and analyzes communications at a deep level.  Detected anomalies are reported to plant and security personnel with actionable insights. 

Claroty is a Rockwell Automation Encompass Product Partner in the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork program.
