Operational technology and Internet of Things security company Nozomi Networks announced a new partnership to provide advanced cybersecurity solutions for industrial and critical infrastructure facilities.
“Facilities that fully leverage their OT (BAS, Fire Alarm, Security, SCADA etc.) systems deliver tremendous returns when it comes to energy and operational savings, the safety and comfort of occupants, and lower total cost of ownership,” said Chinook’s President, Wanda Lenkewich, in a press release. “At the same time, the network connectivity that enables these systems, also introduces new and growing cyber threats. Partnering with Nozomi Networks allows Chinook to support clients with an integrated, comprehensive cybersecurity solution that ensures cyber threats are actively discovered, monitored and managed.”
Chinook Systems specializes in building automation and facilities consulting and commissioning services. As part of the new partnership, Chinook will provide advanced cybersecurity solutions with network visibility, threat detection, and operational insights for enhanced prevention and response to operational threats.
“We are absolutely delighted to team with Chinook to help industrial and critical infrastructure facilities meet new requirements for secure connectivity across OT, IT and IoT networks,” Chet Namboodri, Vice President, Worldwide Business Development & Channel Sales, said in the release. “We’ve already worked together to deliver on a number of joint customer engagements in both the government and commercial sectors. Partnering with Chinook accelerates our joint efforts to make sure facility-related control and building management systems are safe from cyber threats.”
Nozomi Networks solutions support more than 17 million devices across energy, manufacturing, mining, transportation, utilities, building automation, smart cities and critical infrastructure. Chinook specializes in lifecycle solutions for whole building commissioning, facility engineering, system upgrades and replacement, facilities management, energy optimization, cybersecurity and advanced technology. Together, the two will help owners of mission critical infrastructure reduce their threat landscape, preserve availability, and maintain safe and reliable functionality of their operational technology.
