Collaboration Incorporates Airbus CyberSecurity’s Security Operations Centre 4.0 Managed Security Services with Claroty’s Industrial Cybersecurity Platform

Airbus CyberSecurity and Claroty, have teamed up to strengthen the security of manufacturing environments in critical national infrastructure (CNI), government, and defence organisations. The partnership delivers strong cyber resilience by protecting customers’ critical systems from cyber threats and downtime, while also improving overall productivity with safer connections and deeper insights into their industrial assets.

Industry 4.0 is driving manufacturing environments to be more interconnected than ever before, in the pursuit of production efficiencies to save costs and increase output. As a result, previously isolated operational technology (OT) networks have become directly or indirectly connected to the internet, which increases the attack surface available to adversaries. European legislation such as the NIS Directive – which sets a range of cybersecurity requirements for operators of essential services in manufacturing, space, energy, water utilities and other sectors – as well as country- and industry-specific standards are driving organisations to implement strategies and solutions that address these new cyber risks.
Additionally, securing industrial assets is increasingly seen as a business enabler, as it allows for trusted connections and deeper analytics. To this end, Airbus CyberSecurity and Claroty’s partnership will help customers address rising security challenges and gain new insights into how security can increase manufacturing productivity even further.

“We always endeavour to develop our cyber capability to best protect our customers and working with technology partners is a key element to our success,” said Phil Jones, Head of Services at Airbus CyberSecurity. “Our goal is to continue to defend OT environments against cyberattacks and reduce breaches and downtime of critical systems. Claroty’s market-leading industrial cybersecurity platform can help us achieve our vision in this area.”

Airbus CyberSecurity has developed a Security Operations Centre (SOC) 4.0 offering utilising the Claroty Platform, which has been successfully implemented. With this managed service, industries can safely detect connected manufacturing assets, determine inherent risks and detect anomalies, which are then handled in the SOC.

“Partnering with Airbus CyberSecurity allows us to deliver our market-leading platform within a full set of SOC services for manufacturers,” said Keith Carter, Vice President of Worldwide Channels & Alliances at Claroty. “The combination of Claroty technology and Airbus CyberSecurity services is what makes cybersecurity a business enabler rather than a roadblock. It is therefore essential to our customers’ ability to fully protect their industrial assets, as their manufacturing environments become increasingly interconnected and newly exposed to a wide range of cyber threats.”

To find our more about the partnership, on Monday, 26th April 2021 at 1:30pm CET, Airbus CyberSecurity and Claroty will host a webinar: “Airbus CyberSecurity SOC 4.0: A hands-on Demo- Utilising Claroty CTD for protective OT security monitoring as a Service”
