Nozomi Networks Celebrates 10 Years of Innovation in OT and IoT Cybersecurity

Extensive history of successful innovation continues to challenge the norm and drive better cybersecurity for industrial and critical infrastructure worldwide

SYDNEY, October 19, 2023 — Nozomi Networks Inc., the leader in OT and critical infrastructure security, today announced it has reached a record milestone as it marks 10 years of innovation in operational technology (OT) and IoT cybersecurity. In 2013 Nozomi Networks brought the first AI-powered industrial control systems (ICS) visibility and cybersecurity solution to market with its launch of Guardian. A decade later, the company continues to build on its solid track record of innovation, market leadership and unmatched product excellence.

Nozomi Networks’ ability to excel in innovation, combined with its deep expertise in OT and ICS security have played an instrumental role in changing the industry’s mindset when it comes to embracing new ways to secure the cyber and physical worlds of OT and ICS. Nozomi Networks was the first to:

  • Introduce artificial intelligence (AI) in threat detection to a poorly instrumented OT/ICS world;
  • Combine multiple single purpose security functions into a robust unified platform;
  • Incorporate granular active scanning to a world that was passive only;
  • Deliver a cloud-based security solution to a world that was reluctant to embrace the cloud;
  • Offer an endpoint security solution to meet the requirements for OT/IoT.

“Over the years our customers have relied on Nozomi to help find solutions for their most critical cybersecurity challenges, said Nozomi Networks Co-founder and CPO Andrea Carcano. “We’ve been the first to introduce some of the most significative innovation in the OT space. It’s been amazing seeing how our customer have embraced our ideas around AI-powered asset management, controlled active monitoring in OT networks and cloud considerations for greater scale and efficiently. Today our customers continue to play a critical role in helping us identify and innovate new solutions for better security, resiliency, and operational efficiency.”

“Nozomi Networks exists because our founders believed there was a better way to solve the cybersecurity issues facing industrial networks and critical infrastructure,” said Nozomi Networks CEO Edgard Capdevielle. “It’s that visionary mindset and an insatiable appetite for helping customers protect their most valued business processes and operations that continue to drive our success. Ten years later, Nozomi has never been more committed to helping our customers solve their most daunting cybersecurity challenges.”
