Blue Cube Security, a leading cyber security provider, today announced that it has achieved OT Specialization as part of the Fortinet Engage Partner Program.
In a fast-moving industry, specializations focused on market opportunities enabled by the Fortinet Engage Partner Program help partners be recognised and valued by current and potential customers as trusted partners who have the expertise, services, and technologies they need to fulfill their business needs.
“It’s been over a decade since Stuxnet made us realise that OT environments could be corrupted to cause damage in the physical world. We’ve seen this type of threat starting to be taken seriously by our customers and have been fielding requests to help minimise the risks they face from this” said Nick Munro, Technology Services Director at Blue Cube Security.”
“We felt we were best able to contribute, with our long history of IT security expertise, by learning about the OT domain and partnering with vendors that have offerings in that domain. With their long list of alliances and product features specific to OT, Fortinet were naturally at the top of that list. We elected to pursue the OT specialization with Fortinet, with technical training specific to integrating into OT environments, and sales training to understand what’s important and appropriate to those use cases.”
With the Operational Technology Specialization, partners are validated with deep expertise about how the convergence of OT and information technology (IT) impacts the security of OT and critical infrastructure environments. These partners can deliver the level of protection these unique networks require, whether combining new and existing solutions, or building a comprehensive cybersecurity mesh architecture designed to span hybrid IT and OT environments.
