Nozomi Networks, the leader in operational technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) security, will be participating at the upcoming Gulf Information Security Expo & Conference (GISEC) from 14-16 March 2023 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. At the exhibition, the company will highlight how its extensive suite of leading OT and IoT security solutions can be leveraged to protect critical infrastructure, industrial networks, and government organizations from cyber threats, all while maximizing operational resilience.
2022 was another unprecedented year for OT, IoT and ICS security, with news-making attacks such as Industroyer2 and INCONTROLLER causing turbulence worldwide. Ransomware, threats to OT/ICS settings, and vulnerability disclosures remain at large. The latest OT/IoT security report from Nozomi Networks Labs finds that oil and gas, healthcare, transportation, and retail are just a few examples of industry verticals where attacks have significantly increased over the past year, as most IoT and OT (industrial) networks lack adequate cyber security control, an area that attackers are taking full advantage of. Currently, OT and IoT networks in the Middle East are more vulnerable to cyberattacks across all industries.
“We’ve observed an increase in demand for OT and IoT solutions in the Middle East, and both the public and private sectors are stepping up to strengthen defenses. Robust cybersecurity is of top priority as OT and ICS systems embrace new technologies to stay ahead of the competition,” comments Bachir Moussa, Regional Director – MEA, at Nozomi Networks. “This is where Nozomi Networks step in. Our solutions deliver exceptional network and asset visibility, threat detection, and insights for OT and IoT environments, allowing organizations to reduce risks and build cyber resilience. We are at GISEC 2023 to engage with companies facing similar challenges, existing and prospective customers, partners, and visitors from all around the world.”
Launched this January, Nozomi Arc, the latest addition to Nozomi Networks’ product portfolio, will make its debut at GISEC 2023. Nozomi Arc is the industry’s first endpoint security sensor that now complements previous Guardian and Vantage deployments with more visibility into a host’s attack surfaces and anomalies, offering a more detailed view of an organization’s complete OT/ICS environment. Built to automatically deploy across large numbers of sites and devices anywhere an organization needs visibility, Nozomi Arc adds crucial data and insights about key assets and network endpoints. This data is used to better analyze and deter threats, as well as correlate user activity, all without putting a strain on current resources or disrupting mission-critical networks.
Nozomi Networks’ team of senior executives and cybersecurity experts will be available onsite at Stand B75, Hall 6 to share insights on solving emerging OT and IoT security challenges, tell visitors more about Nozomi Arc, and demonstrate how its range of technologies can benefit and be leveraged within visibility and security markets.
