Industrial cybersecurity firm Claroty has launched a new platform for industrial operational systems. Claroty xDome is a SaaS system designed to provide cybersecurity protection to operational technologies and networks, including protecting interfaces and integrations with enterprise and edge IT systems.

Claroty xDome provides broad asset discovery, including both passive and active monitoring; vulnerability and risk management support – correlating assets with findings from its research arm Team82 and its database of known flaws and providing custom risk scoring and remediation guidance allowing risk prioritisation and mitigation; network segmentation controls that protect against escalating risks – with defined segmentation policies that can be automatically and safely enforced via existing infrastructure.

xDome is a product of Claroty’s acquisition of Medigate in January 2022 and combines Claroty and Medigate’s technologies for industrial and healthcare environments into a single platform. It is designed to allow users to quickly pinpoint and remediate attack vectors, identify and respond to early indicators of both known and unknown threats, and integrate these capabilities with existing SOC tools and workflows.

“While asset discovery is an urgent need and how every enterprise starts their security journey, an asset inventory by itself is not a source of value,” said Yaniv Vardi, CEO of Claroty. “By supplementing asset information with vulnerability and risk management, organisations can pivot to a much more advantageous position: from reacting to cyber threats and incidents that already exist in the network, to proactively preventing them from ever taking hold in the first place. Making this shift is critical for achieving cyber and operational resilience, and xDome empowers our customers to do so. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

“When we had the chance to look at Claroty’s new xDome solution, we were very excited by what we saw,” said Ivan Low, general manager of SecureCraft Singapore. “xDome is a complete solution for many customers who are embracing Industrial 4.0, moving to Industrial 5.0, as well as adopting smart building solutions for their building management systems. Marrying OT with IoT, IoMT, and IIoT truly brings out the strength of Claroty xDome for the XIoT.”
