IBM Security partners with Nozomi Networks to further strengthen its managed security services offering with expertise for OT and industrial IoT cybersecurity.

“Managing escalating cyber threats and risks to critical infrastructure and industrial operations is a top priority for a growing number of our security services clients,” said Chris McCurdy, vice president, GM IBM Worldwide Security.

Operational asset management is making its way to the Security Operations Center (SOC) and customers are turning to IBM Security for comprehensive IT and OT managed threat detection and response (MTDR) and platform management. Nozomi Networks’ MSSP Elite Program helps IBM Security successfully operationalise, maintain and optimise OT and IoT security services over time. Customers benefit from highly scalable industry-proven solutions, said a press release.

“IBM Security is filling a vital role as CISOs look for cost-effective ways to strengthen their security postures across IT and OT while juggling resource constraints and skills gaps,” said Chet Namboodri, Nozomi Networks Senior Vice President of Business Development and Alliances.

Going beyond basic OT and IoT security integrations for converged network SOC environments, the new partners consider themselves to be fully equipped to integrate, sell and support Nozomi Networks’ solutions as part of a comprehensive managed services offering for mutual customers.
