Greenville, S.C. (January 30, 2019) – Elliott Davis, a leading business solutions firm with nine offices across the Southeast, announces that the company’s Risk Advisory and Cybersecurity practice has established a partnership with Nozomi Networks, the leader in industrial cybersecurity and operational visibility. The agreement allows Elliott Davis to leverage Nozomi Networks’ industrial control systems (ICS) capabilities for clients in the manufacturing, energy, mining, transportation and utilities industries to actively monitor and secure their operational technology (OT) networks.
“With the advancement of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), the attack surface for cybercriminals is expanding and putting more companies at risk,” says Jimmy Buddenberg, director of Elliott Davis’ Risk Advisory and Cybersecurity practice. “The first step to better cybersecurity—particularly in industrial facilities, which often don’t have up-to-date lists of assets or network diagrams—is better visibility of OT infrastructure. The Elliott Davis/Nozomi Networks partnership provides a turnkey solution to quickly achieve that visibility and implement best-in-class threat detection.”
Designed specifically for ICS and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) environments, SCADAguardian provides real-time cybersecurity and operational visibility by detecting cyberattacks and process anomalies. Up-to-the-minute visualization of a company’s industrial network, including its components, connections and topology, allows companies to integrate their OT and IT (information technology) network monitoring with existing SIEM (security information and event management) solutions. This, in turn, enables internal IT and OT teams to focus on preempting or mitigating issues that could impact security or availability.
“Elliott Davis has a deeply established reputation of trust and a proven track with companies across the Southeast,” says Chet Namboodri, vice president of Alliances and Business Development for Nozomi Networks. “Their trusted advisor role and consultative solution delivery expertise complements the technology advantages, OT insights and cybersecurity enablement that Nozomi Networks delivers. Our combined strengths provide a value proposition to an impressive base of customers who are turning to the firm to overcome industrial cyber threats that companies face today.”
