Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of advanced threat, security, and compliance solutions, and Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical manufacturing applications, today announced a new marketing initiative designed to improve critical infrastructure cybersecurity in manufacturing organizations.
Control systems used in manufacturing industries have special requirements not found in typical corporate IT environments. Industrial Control Systems, Distributed Control Systems, and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition devices gather, analyze, and monitor real-time data from power output to pipeline flow and pressure, enabling equipment and processes to run more safely and efficiently. Cyberthreats to manufacturing are so serious that the National Association of Manufacturers has called for legislation to help manufacturers protect themselves against cybercrime because successful cyberattacks threaten operational uptime and productivity.
“Belden and Tripwire share a common mission. We are both committed to the delivery of next generation cybersecurity solutions,” said Dhrupad Trivedi, president of industrial IT for Belden. “Our technologies are synergistic and this partnership will help us provide the kind of comprehensive cybersecurity solutions our customers need in the evolving landscape of increased connectivity.”
Belden is the industry leader in Industrial IT and is delivering the next generation of networking solutions. Together, Tripwire and Belden provide powerful cybersecurity solutions tailored to meet the unique demands of manufacturers. Belden has selected Tripwire as a cybersecurity partner because Tripwire solutions uniquely detect changes on critical systems, which can be early indicators of threat or compromise. Over half of Fortune 500 companies, including many of the largest and most sensitive networks in the world, rely on Tripwire. With over 9,000 customers worldwide, Tripwire technology is widely recognized as the most comprehensive cybersecurity solution for critical infrastructure protection.
“We’re excited about our partnership with Belden,” said Rekha Shenoy, vice president of corporate development for Tripwire. “We understand industrial manufacturers need robust cybersecurity tailored to their specific requirements. Together, Tripwire and Belden offer powerful solutions along with extensive experience and superior customer support.”
