Emerson has recently entered an agreement with Nozomi Networks to fulfil the rising need for OT cybersecurity services and solutions in the markets that both the companies serve. In accordance with the agreement, Emerson will make Nozomi Networks’ cutting-edge solutions for industrial control system cyber resilience and real-time operational visibility available to customers worldwide.

Following this integration, the OT & IoT security and visibility features from Nozomi Networks will be combined with Emerson’s DeltaV distributed control system (DCS), consulting, and professional services. The companies claim that by doing this, they will give comprehensive solutions that improve cybersecurity outcomes and lower the possibility of downtime brought on by cyberattacks or operational problems.

Alexandre Peixoto, Cybersecurity Business Director of Process Systems and Software Business, Emerson, said, “By teaming with Nozomi Networks, Emerson is enhancing our customers’ immediate access to OT network visibility, security and asset intelligence that integrates seamlessly with our DeltaV DCS and is fully supported by the Emerson Cybersecurity Services organization. Together, we are delivering the deepest possible industrial process expertise, a superior solution, and a proven track record serving the most demanding industrial customers.”

Utilizing the DeltaV suite of software and technologies, the new product can provide improved plant performance with intelligent control that is simple to use and maintain. Additionally, responsive to customer needs and goals, the DeltaV DCS can scale without adding more complexity.

In addition to optimizing overall business processes, vulnerability assessment tools will assist clients in identifying OT devices that can be used in cyberattacks. Utilizing both active and passive methods, Nozomi Networks’ asset discovery capabilities will be able to securely identify OT and IoT assets.

Edgard Capdevielle, CEO, Nozomi Networks, commented, “We are teaming with Emerson to address the growing cybersecurity concerns that are an everyday reality for modern automation processes. Industrial organizations rely on Emerson for its innovative technologies and solutions. This agreement furthers our joint commitment to help protect critical infrastructure around the world.”
