The company stated that the partnership enables Schneider Electric to respond more aggressively to the immediate demand for effective, operational technology cybersecurity services, solutions and expertise in oil and gas, power, building automation and other industrial sectors.

It will offer Nozomi Networks’ advanced solutions for industrial control system cyber resilience and real-time operational visibility to customers worldwide.

Nathalie Marcotte, senior vice president, Industry Services and Cybersecurity, Schneider Electric, said, “The industry-wide transformation taking place today enables our customers to improve their business performance in ways they never imagined, but it requires them to expand connectivity across their operations, so they can extract, contextualise and apply new levels of rich data.”

“However, extending connectivity also extends the attack surface for would-be cybercriminals. Therefore, cybersecurity can no longer be an afterthought. There’s too much at stake, financially and operationally. By adding Nozomi Networks to our family of partners, we strengthen our ability to help customers understand and eliminate risks and threats to their operations and assets while reducing potential impact on their business success,” she added.

The company will combine its EcoStruxure IIoT process automation and industrial control solutions with Nozomi’s SCADAguardian platform for real-time operations visibility.

EcoStruxure is Schneider Electric’s open, interoperable, IoT- enabled system architecture and platform that delivers enhanced value for customers in terms of safety, reliability, efficiency, sustainability and connectivity, the company added.

Edgard Capdevielle, chief executive officer at Nozomi Networks, commented, “Years of multi-industry experience discerning the complexities of industrial control system networks, continuous innovation and expertise in artificial intelligence and machine learning have made Nozomi Networks SCADAguardian the most comprehensive, scalable and mature product in its category.”
