Nozomi Networks has announced an expanded global strategic partnership with Mandiant to help industrial and enterprise customers anticipate, diagnose and respond to IT and OT cyber threats in their critical business operations.
As part of the strategic partnership, Mandiant expanded the number of certified Nozomi Networks experts on its global OT incident response team and will utilise Nozomi Networks’ solutions to further forensic analysis and incident assessments. The companies are also investing in a new initiative that will include threat intelligence sharing and joint security research, and plan to introduce custom-designed incident response and assessment programs for joint customers. These new efforts reinforce a trusted partnership that began in 2016 and continues to expand with the shared mission to strengthen the security of industrial control systems.
