Nozomi and Chinook team to deliver OT and IoT security for industrial and critical infrastructure facilities

Chet Namboodri of Nozomi Networks

Nozomi Networks Inc., a specialist in operations technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT) security, and Chinook Systems, Inc a provider of building automation and facilities consulting and commissioning services, have partnered to provide advanced cybersecurity solutions. The goal is to protect industrial and critical infrastructure facilities across North America.

By offering Nozomi Networks’ complete portfolio of OT and IoT security solutions, Chinook expands its cybersecurity technology offering with a focus on network visibility, threat detection and operational insights for effective prevention and faster responses to operational threats.

“Facilities that fully leverage their OT (BAS, Fire Alarm, Security, SCADA, etc.) systems deliver tremendous returns when it comes to energy and operational savings, the safety and comfort of occupants, and lower total cost of ownership,” says Chinook’s president, Wanda Lenkewich. “At the same time, the network connectivity that enables these systems, also introduces new and growing cyber threats. Partnering with Nozomi Networks allows Chinook to support clients with an integrated, comprehensive cybersecurity solution that ensures cyber threats are actively discovered, monitored and managed.”

Recognised as the market provider in OT and IoT security, Nozomi Networks is valued for superior operational visibility, advanced OT and IoT threat detection and strength across deployments. Nozomi Networks solutions support more than 17 million devices in thousands of installations across energy, manufacturing, mining, transportation, utilities, building automation, smart cities and critical infrastructure.

Nozomi Networks products are deployable onsite and in the cloud and span IT, OT and IoT to automate the hard work of assessing, visualising and monitoring industrial control networks through the innovative use of artificial intelligence. Use cases stretch beyond cybersecurity and include troubleshooting, asset management and predictive maintenance.

Chinook is at the forefront of cybersecurity for industrial and facility-related control systems, delivering operational strategies and solutions for critical infrastructure sectors including government, healthcare, data centres, airports, higher education, energy, and defence industrial base. Chinook specialises in lifecycle solutions providing whole building commissioning, facility engineering, system upgrades and replacement, facilities management, energy optimisation, cybersecurity and advanced technology.

Chinook’s Cyber Commissioning program (CyberCxTM) helps owners of mission-critical infrastructures reduce their threat landscape, preserve availability, and maintain safe and reliable functionality of their operational technology.

“We are absolutely delighted to team with Chinook to help industrial and critical infrastructure facilities meet new requirements for secure connectivity across OT, IT and IoT networks,” says Chet Namboodri, vice president, worldwide business development & channel sales at Nozomi.

“We’ve already worked together to deliver on a number of joint customer engagements in both the government and commercial sectors. Partnering with Chinook accelerates our joint efforts to make sure facility-related control and building management systems are safe from cyber threats.”
