Claroty has partnered with Deloitte to boost cybersecurity in industrial technology systems across Asia Pacific including Australia, China, Hong Kong SAR, and Singapore. The partnership was established to enable industrial enterprises to manage and secure their operational technology (OT) environments.
“Our software coupled with Deloitte’s expertise gives our customers across mining, manufacturing and utilities deep visibility into their OT networks and a full assessment of their cyber posture. We are delighted with the success of this partnership that started in Australia and continues to expand globally,” said Emanuel Salmona, Vice President of Global Partnerships at Claroty.
“Industrial organisations, particularly in the power and water sectors, are keen to transform themselves into digital utilities, but often security can be an obstacle rather than an enabler of digital transformation,” said David Owen, Australia Energy, Resources & Infrastructure Industry Cyber Leader at Deloitte Risk Advisory.
“We are working with one of the largest utilities in Australia at present deploying Claroty, and its key driver has been digital transformation and securing their traditional OT and industrial control system (ICS) assets. Converging their digital platforms with IT becomes necessary and the security that our partnership provides ultimately enables them to successfully transform into digital utilities,” added Owen.
According to Claroty’s recent global survey of 1,000 IT security professionals, 90 percent of respondents from Australia believe that their country’s critical infrastructure is properly secured against cyber-attacks, compared to just 60 percent of respondents globally. At the same time, 91 percent of respondents from Australia are more concerned about cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure than an enterprise data breach, compared to only 74 percent of respondents globally. These findings show that while professionals in Australia are highly confident in their ability to protect the country’s industrial networks, they also believe that the need to protect them is paramount.
