Oylo is dedicated to providing a wide range of cybersecurity services and solutions to the industrial control system (ICS) including assessment, turnkey implementation, managed services and incident response.

“As connected smart devices are introduced into the plant floor, a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy that encompasses industrial operating technology (OT) and information technology (IT) is more critical than ever before. We are committed to the success of our customers on their Connected Enterprise journey, and the deep domain expertise that Oylo brings to Rockwell Automation will further accelerate our ability to deliver this expertise globally,” said Frank Kulaszewicz, senior vice-president, lifecycle services at Rockwell Automation.

Oylo’s acquisition demonstrates Rockwell Automation’s commitment to providing best-in-class cybersecurity services and solutions. Oylo’s cybersecurity OT expertise complements the cybersecurity IT expertise gained through the recent acquisition of Avnet Data Security. The addition of Oylo further accelerates the company’s global delivery capability in this rapidly developing market and expands the offering of cybersecurity services to the industrial market.

“We look forward to continuing to serve our loyal customers and partners while expanding our services to organisations around the globe,” said Eduardo Di Monte, founder and CEO of Oylo.
