Leidos Partners with Claroty for Passive Monitoring of Cyber Threats to Industrial Control Systems Networks

Claroty’s Passive, Continuous Threat Monitoring, Detection and Response, and Secure Remote Access Solutions Now Available to Leidos Customers around the Globe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. and NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leidos (NYSE:LDOS), a FORTUNE 500® science, information technology, and engineering company and Claroty, an innovator in operational technology (OT) network protection, announced today that Leidos has partnered with Claroty to provide passive monitoring capabilities to its Industrial Defender Automation Systems Manager® (ASM) solution for industrial control systems (ICS) networks. Leidos customers will immediately gain enhanced cybersecurity for industrial and critical infrastructure networks by integrating the Claroty Platform for continuous threat monitoring, detection and response. The offering will be available through resale by Leidos to both current and future Leidos Industrial Defender ASM® customers.

/EIN News/ -- The Claroty Platform is an award-winning suite of integrated products specifically designed for OT or ICS environments. It provides comprehensive protection, detection and response capabilities – yielding unmatched cyber risk management for OT or ICS networks. The platform proactively protects and continuously monitors ICS networks in a passive manner for cyber threats. This approach ensures no interruption to critically important industrial processes. With secure remote access, asset owners can employ policies to control remote employee and third-party access to critical systems, and record the sessions. Continuous threat detection creates a detailed inventory of industrial network assets, identifies misconfigurations, monitors traffic between assets, and finds anomalies that may indicate the presence of a malicious actor. Context-rich alerts provide plant and security personnel with actionable insights for efficient investigation, response, and recovery.

Leidos’ Industrial Defender ASM solution addresses the overlapping requirements of cybersecurity, compliance, and change management for ICS. Industrial Defender ASM is the industry standard for maintaining availability and reliability of critical infrastructure amid escalating cyber threats, increasing regulatory burdens, and accelerating ICS management challenges.

“Leidos has long helped customers gain better visibility into their industrial networks and control their extensive base of installed assets and manage vulnerabilities,” said Bob Meindl, President of Leidos Cyber, Inc. “Claroty is recognized as a market leader in their segment with deployments across six continents and nine industry verticals. Partnering with Claroty is a logical step as we strive to help our customers better manage and secure these critical networks.”

“I have said in the past that nothing will deter us from our mission of bringing rapid and long overdue change to the cybersecurity of industrial control networks,” said Amir Zilberstein, Chief Executive Officer of Claroty. “In addition to direct activity, we have employed a strategy of working with key partners around the globe to accomplish this mission. Working with Leidos is the latest demonstration of our partner-focused mindset and another great step forward for ICS security. Not only does the relationship mean that existing Leidos customers will be better protected – it opens new avenues to helping customers across the globe.”
