Zscaler is proud to announce a new partnership with OT/IoT security leader Nozomi Networks to address the emerging cyber threats to industrial infrastructure and remote connectivity challenges for the manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and energy industries. Our joint solutions extend zero trust to OT and IoT environments with a complete set of industrial cybersecurity controls, including network visibility, threat detection, remote access, and operational insights.
Solving the OT remote access challenge
Today, plant operations and OT system owners are transforming their networks to modernize operations and provide seamless and secure connectivity for their remote workforce. In the traditional approach, employees and third parties are connected to OT environments via virtual private networks (VPNs), which introduce significant security risks and complexity. In addition, unplanned downtime from cyber security incidents or network outages can cause serious harm to plants and personnel, resulting in revenue loss and reputational impact.
As today’s work-from-anywhere world reshapes companies and industries in lasting ways, the old paradigm of building castle walls and a moat around your resources with legacy technology will soon become obsolete. Our new reality calls for a zero-trust approach when modernizing cybersecurity and accelerating the move to more secure remote access implementations for OT.
Preventing operational disruption and downtime
Together, Zscaler and Nozomi Networks provide OT security teams with highly secure remote access to their industrial networks for employees and third-party users, maximizing productivity and uptime. With Zscaler Private Access, you can remotely access the full Nozomi Networks solution including Guardian sensors and Vantage cloud-based management console. Choosing fully cloud-delivered OT security monitoring and zero trust network access solutions provides seamless, easy access from anywhere in the world, while eliminating the attack surface and significantly reducing the risk of a cyberattack.
