Tempered Networks and Nozomi Networks today announced a new partnership and product integration to deliver a full-featured industrial security solution for network visibility, threat detection and remediation. The joint offering integrates Nozomi Networks’ leading network visibility, threat detection and incident response system with Tempered Network’s Zero Trust policy enforcement and centralized software-defined perimeter management console. Today’s sophisticated security threats are driving requirements for not only extreme visibility and intelligent threat detection, but also automated remediation that can lock-down vulnerable systems while ensuring continued availability for authorized access and continuity of business.
“As the leader in OT and IoT security visibility and threat detection, Nozomi Networks gives us a powerful partner to deliver greater insight and remediation capabilities to our customers,” said Jeff Hussey, Founder and CEO of Tempered Networks. “The AI-powered network analysis and anomaly detection that they provide can drive more accurate micro-segmentation and security policy enforcement into our Airwall platform, providing a more secure, rapid response approach against industrial-grade network attacks.”
“Tempered Airwall delivers the military-grade encryption and secure access policy enforcement that many of our joint customers rely upon to quickly remediate anomalies and threats in their networks,” said Chet Namboodri, Nozomi Networks Senior Vice President of Business Development and Alliances. “The combination of threat visibility and automated enforcement significantly improves security response. Ubiquitous threats like the SolarWinds attack continue to emerge and industrial connectivity for remote work and connected smart devices continue to accelerate. Our combined offerings provide strong detection and defense against the rapid proliferation of advanced persistent threats, actively buttoning down attack surfaces.”
The product integration includes the ability of Tempered to mirror secure traffic to Nozomi Networks solutions through a fully encrypted overlay for greater analysis and insight. Armed with AI-driven insights from Nozomi Networks, Airwall customers can take remediation steps or refine Tempered security policies through the Airwall Conductor management console API. The Nozomi Networks solution and Tempered Networks Conductor work in concert to refine Airwall zero trust policies and address identified threats, going beyond the capabilities of traditional network security devices like firewalls or remote access solutions.
"A two-way integration of network monitoring of IoT devices and secure, zero-trust, communications is brilliant," said Richard Stiennon, industry analyst with IT-Harvest and author of Security Yearbook 2020. "Ensuring that all communications is stealthed and encrypted while preserving visibility into traffic is a winning combination."
The joint solution is available today with the release of Tempered Networks Airwall 2.2.11. Contact the respective vendors for platform pricing details.
