CybersecAsia Readers Laud Claroty As Best In IoT & Supply Chain Security

Claroty, the industrial cybersecurity company, has been voted as the Best in IoT & Supply Chain Security solution in the 2021 CybersecAsia Readers’ Choice Awards.

The annual awards programme showcases cybersecurity solutions and service providers that have made the most impact on their organisations in the course of the last 12 months.

In early 2020, enterprises faced the unanticipated challenge of quickly pivoting to remote operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time, many organisations lacked secure remote access capabilities, especially in relation to operational technology (OT). For those operators, Claroty filled the gap.

The company’s Secure Remote Access (SRA) solution helps to safeguard OT networks from threats introduced via unmanaged and unmonitored access by remote users and minimises delays when repairs are made that can increase a company’s exposure to risk.

For example, an oil and gas company in Thailand was able to significantly reduce the number of onsite personnel required to maintain critical industrial systems at each plant with Claroty SRA.

As a core component of The Claroty Platform, Claroty SRA delivers frictionless, reliable, and highly secure remote access to OT environments. Unlike traditional remote access solutions—most of which are designed exclusively for IT networks—Claroty SRA is purpose-built for the specific operational, administrative, and security needs of industrial networks.

“We are deeply honoured to receive this recognition from our customers and peers. Winning this award is a true testament to Claroty’s expertise in securing our customers OT, IoT, and IIoT assets in the region,” said Eddie Stefanescu, general manager of Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) at Claroty.

As critical infrastructure organisations continue to modernise their production sites by introducing more internet-connected devices into them, these devices can also serve as new entry points for ransomware and other threats that could disrupt operations.

Claroty addresses these challenges by giving customers unparalleled visibility, threat detection, risk and vulnerability management, and secure remote access capabilities for their industrial sites.
