Claroty, an industrial cybersecurity company, announced it will be implementing its Continuous Threat Detection (CTD) solution with Siemens Mobility Data Capture Unit (DCU). The collaboration introduces a combination of hardware and software that delivers a secure, one-way data flow from industrial networks to corporate Information Technology (IT) networks and cloud services.
Claroty CTD's deep packet inspection provides asset discovery and continuous security monitoring for Operational Technology (OT) networks. CTD maintains a high Safety Integrity Level (SIL) to lower the possibility of risk in the OT environment. When combined with Siemens DCU for industrial applications, Claroty passively collects, aggregates, and analyzes asset and communications data from OT networks and securely transmits it to the corporate network via Siemens' DCU.
The DCU from Siemens Mobility is a small hardware implementation of its data diode technology designed for Industrial security and connectivity to eliminate vulnerabilities due to mismanagement and web-based cyber-attacks. Typically located on the edge of the network, the DCU provides boundary protection for the OT network, and a secure bridge when connected to the IT network.
