Claroty extends platform to include IoT device security

Claroty has upgraded Continuous Threat Detection to include support for IoT device security, keeping pace with the proliferation of IoT devices in the enterprise.

Claroty has released enhancements to its Continuous Threat Detection offering that it claimed can enable enterprises to discover and monitor IoT devices, provide customers with greater network visibility, reduce deployment time and eliminate noise to identify critical alerts.

Claroty, an industrial cybersecurity provider, included support for IoT device security in Continuous Threat Detection (CTD) version 3.5 to keep pace with the role IoT devices are playing in digital transformation and operational efficiency, according to the vendor.

Gartner predicted, by 2020, more than 65% of enterprises will adopt IoT products.

Continuous Threat Detection 3.5 brings Claroty's deep packet inspection technology to IoT and operational technology (OT) devices. The offering automatically discovers and classifies IoT devices on the network, identifies known vulnerabilities and risks, and continuously monitors the environment for threats and policy violations.

Other updates to the OT security offering include the following:

  • A machine learning alert algorithm optimizes signal-to-noise ratio and prioritizes high-fidelity alerts for investigation.
  • Root cause analytics illustrates the chain of events that triggered an alert and improves speed and accuracy of incident response and threat hunting.
  • Claroty Threat Intelligence uses zero-day vulnerability research and IoT- and OT-specific indicators of compromise to augment CTD.
  • Virtual Zones+ automatically groups network assets with similar behaviors and attributes for CTD to identify the relationship and generate granular communication policies.
  • An expanded technical ecosystem includes integration with Aruba's ClearPass network access control platform and Fortinet FortiGate next-generation firewalls.

Continuous Threat Detection is Claroty's flagship product, providing visibility, threat and vulnerability monitoring, and deep internet connection sharing network insights. Claroty claimed the offering prevents impact to physical processes and is easy to deploy and scale.

In addition to including IoT device security offerings in Continuous Threat Detection, Claroty also joined the Industrial Internet Consortium, a group dedicated to delivering trustworthy industrial internet of things in which all systems and devices are securely connected and controlled. Claroty intends to help drive a common security framework and a rigorous assessment of industrial internet system security.
