We’re Native OT Speakers

At Claroty we’re not just fluent in every protocol, we’re OT native speakers.

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.
