August 11, 2020 Perry Cohen

Claroty, an operational technology (OT) security company, announced a new partnership with Check Point Software Technologies. The partnership was sparked to integrate Claroty’s Continuous Threat Detection (CTD) and Check Point’s IoT Protect solution.

Check Point’s new solution, which was released just recently, prevents IoT cyber attacks by adapting protections to any IoT or OT devices. As a new partner, Claroty will assist in finding and classifying OT devices.

“We are excited to bring Claroty to our customers as part of Check Point’s IoT Protect Discovery program,” said head of product marketing at Check Point Russ Schafer, in a press release. “The combination of Claroty’s Continuous Threat Detection (CTD) and Check Point’s IoT Protect threat prevention solution provides our industrial customers the visibility, security, and automation to protect networks from emerging IoT threats.”

Per the release, aggregated security alerts from The Claroty Platform are sent to Check Point’s advanced IoT Protect Controller Manager, which sets the security policy that is enforced through Check Point’s Quantum Security Gateways.

The companies also announced a joint webinar titled: “Preventing Cyber Attacks on Industrial OT Networks and IoT Devices.” The webinar will take place Thursday 13, August.
