Fortinet has welcomed four OT specialist firms into its Technology Alliance and Fabric-Ready Partner ecosystem to expand the range of solutions available for OT customers. Three new OT security specialists – RAD, Indegy and SecurityMatters – join with longstanding partner Nozomi Networks to provide advanced visibility into the OT-specific commands and protocols to better inform the Fortinet Security Fabric to secure the emerging cyber-physical domain of OT networks. These partners enhance the OT-specific capabilities within Fortinet’s portfolio by adding deep packet inspection and contextual analysis capabilities to Fortinet’s OT vulnerability scanning and policy enforcement.
Fortinet Security Fabric provides a unique centralized and integrated platform approach to security through purpose-built solutions designed for OT environments, combined with strategic partnerships with some of the industry’s leading OT security specialists. Unlike most security platforms, the Fortinet Security Fabric is flexible enough to easily accommodate and integrate with a large number of partners to provide truly comprehensive security coverage for this important segment.
Rajesh Maurya, Regional Vice President, India & SAARC at Fortinet said, “As OT networks embrace digital transformation, and physical and cyber domains continue to converge, sensitive production environments and critical infrastructures are increasingly being exposed to cyber risks. Fortinet is committed to protecting crucial and sensitive OT environments through the integrated power of the Fortinet Security Fabric, which includes advanced and specialized protections provided by our growing number of Fabric-Ready Partners.”
