Nozomi Networks partners with BT

OT and IoT security solutions provider Nozomi Networks has announced a new partnership with BT.

As a member of Nozomi Networks’ MSSP Elite Partner Program, BT will resell Nozomi Networks solutions as part of its Operational Technology Threat Management portfolio.

Deployable onsite and in the cloud, Nozomi Networks’ products and solutions support more than 57 million devices in installations across energy, manufacturing, mining, transportation, utilities, building automation, smart cities and critical infrastructure.

Many companies globally are seeing new threats to the security of their operational infrastructure as they digitally enhance production facilities. Given this infrastructure’s criticality, it’s increasingly becoming a target for organised cybercrime and state-sponsored actors looking to disrupt operations and extort payments.

By incorporating Nozomi Networks’ solutions into its portfolio, BT will allow customers to monitor their industrial equipment and processes, providing full asset visibility and the ability to rapidly detect and remediate cyber threats.

These capabilities can be integrated into BT’s existing Security Operations Centre (SOC) and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems, to provide customers with a single pane of glass view over their entire IT and OT estate.

“We have chosen to work with Nozomi Networks as they are a proven leader in OT and IoT security, whose solutions will help our customers accelerate and secure their digital transformation,” said David Stark, security portfolio director at BT. 

Nozomi Networks’ chief revenue officer Stephen Driggers added: “As OT and IT worlds converge and remote work scenarios expand, the attack surface is suddenly larger and securing it more complex.

“We are pleased to team with BT to provide customers with the best possible solution for OT and IoT security and resilience, with the assurance of delivery through a highly respected partner.”
