Garland Technology and Nozomi Networks united to unify visibility and security across managed and unmanaged IoT devices for crucial industrial networks worldwide.

FREMONT, CA: Garland Technology is a prominent network TAP provider, packet broker, and cloud visibility solutions, and Nozomi Networks, is the leader in OT & IoT security. The two companies have announced a collaboration to unify visibility and safety across managed and unmanaged IoT devices for crucial industrial networks all over the world.

The Industrial operational technology (OT) networks are exposed to cyberattacks through connections to the Internet of Things (IoT) and the convergence with traditional IT networks. Therefore, the joint venture will enable complete connectivity, visibility, and cyber resilience across distributed systems. Before disrupting operations, transformation in the network is rapidly discovered to respond to cyber threats, risks, and anomalies.

"Getting packets from OT networks to security tools like Nozomi Networks' Guardian starts with connectivity. OT environments are different from IT networks, requiring specialized network TAPs and accessories connecting tools to the network," states Chris Bihary, CEO Garland Technology. "Our OT solutions are ideal for networks prone to small spaces, vibration, extreme temperatures, DC power, data diode requirements, and fast Ethernet connections. We understand these distinct infrastructures and we are excited to work with Nozomi Networks to secure global industrial networks."

The implementation of Nozomi Networks and Garland Technology improves the visibility and security for innovative utilities, oil and gas facilities, automotive, and other industrial infrastructures. With the capability of accumulating data across every location, the joint solution delivers a central source of aggregated networking information from Garland's solutions. Nozomi Networks Guardian provides network visualization, asset inventory, vulnerability assessment, and threat detection in a single application to achieve efficient connectivity across OT and IT teams.

"Protecting your operation from threats and process anomalies requires deep packet-level visibility and accurate, real-time analytics," said Chet Namboodri, Nozomi Networks Vice President, Worldwide Business Development & Channel Sales. "We're excited to work with Garland Technology so customers can easily leverage our combined solutions for visibility and complete packet information continuity and connectivity in OT and IoT environments."
