Industrial Networks Secured

Our Mission

Claroty bridges the industrial cybersecurity gap between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) environments. Organizations with highly automated production sites and factories that face significant security and financial risk especially need to bridge this gap.

Armed with Claroty’s converged IT/OT solutions, these enterprises and critical infrastructure operators can leverage their existing IT security processes and technologies to improve the availability, safety, and reliability of their OT assets and networks seamlessly and without requiring downtime or dedicated teams. The result is more uptime and greater efficiency across business and production operations.

Industrial Networks Secured

Our Mission

Claroty was conceived to secure the safety and reliability of industrial control networks that run the world from cyber-attacks. 

The Claroty Platform is an integrated set of cyber security products that provides extreme visibility, unmatched cyber threat detection, secure remote access, and risk assessments for industrial control networks (ICS/OT).

We’re Native OT Speakers

At Claroty we’re not just ICS cybersecurity experts. We’re native OT speakers and fluent in every protocol.

We were born and raised in the world of Modbus, Profibus and DeviceNet. We think in S7 and dream in DNP3. We go beyond Ethernet/IP into the realms of the most arcane fieldbus and serial protocols. No corner of the ICS network is dark to us and no event remains misunderstood.
