Nozomi Networks and The Missing Link team up to deliver industrial cybersecurity solution

19 Sep 2018

Cybersecurity and operational visibility company Nozomi Networks and The Missing Link have announced they have partnered to broaden The Missing Link’s delivery of services to customers in critical infrastructure, energy, manufacturing, mining and transport in Australia and New Zealand.

The Missing Link will work with and resell the Nozomi Networks solution. 

The Missing Link chief information security officer Aaron Bailey says, “Malicious individuals or groups, including state actors, are increasingly targeting industrial control systems (ICS) in manufacturing and critical infrastructure to disrupt operations or extort money from businesses.”

“More and more customers in these sectors are asking us to help secure their systems. 

Bailey adds, “To meet these requests, we decided to partner with a vendor with expertise in industrial network cybersecurity.”

“We completed a market review and selected Nozomi Networks due to its products, its investments and expansion in this region, and its partnerships with other vendors we work with.”

Now in its fourth generation of technology, and with offices around the world including a new office located in Sydney, Nozomi Networks supports hundreds of thousands of devices in more than 500 installations spanning energy, manufacturing, mining, transportation, utilities and critical infrastructure.

Nozomi Networks integrates and shares ICS information with large-scale IT/OT environments.

Established in 1997, The Missing Link provides infrastructure, resilience, cloud, communications, managed services, consulting services and cybersecurity solutions.
