ABS Consulting, a subsidiary of class society ABS, has announced a strategic partnership with Nozomi Networks to improve its operational technology (OT) network monitoring and managed cyber services.
ABS Consulting will join Nozomi Networks’ MSSP Elite Partners programme under the deal, which allows managed security service providers (MSSPs) to leverage the existing capabilities of the Nozomi Networks Vantage, Guardian and Central Management Console (CMC) products in serving their customers.
“(Recent) high-profile attacks on critical infrastructure demonstrate the divide between how organisations prepare for and manage the cybersecurity threats facing their OT and IT,” said Ian Bramson, Global Head of Industrial Cybersecurity at ABS Consulting.
“The IT cybersecurity pace is much more advanced, while OT is an emerging target. This, combined with increased digitalisation and connectivity, is creating an ever-expanding risk gap that requires specialised domain expertise to address.”
“Through our collaboration with Nozomi Networks, our clients will now have access to OT-specific managed services, including 24/7 monitoring as well as asset and vulnerability management.”
