Schneider Electric and Fortinet, a global player in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, have joined in a strategic partnership to provide cybersecurity solutions that address the specific needs of OT networks. Under the terms of the agreement, Schneider Electric will integrate Fortinet’s firewalls, secure access and other device protection solutions into its own cybersecurity solutions to help customers secure and protect their increasingly digital operations.
With threat vectors continuously changing and with the critical infrastructure and global manufacturing industries under increasing threat, cybersecurity is a continuous challenge. Because risks are dynamic, the approach to managing and mitigating cyber risks must also be dynamic. Different operations require different solutions, and their needs will change over time. By bringing together Schneider Electric’s technology, domain expertise and experience managing mission-critical IT and OT systems with Fortinet’s cybersecurity offers, the partnership’s objective is to deliver stronger cybersecurity and threat-prevention solutions that fit the specific and changing needs of businesses in most global manufacturing industries.
The agreement is structured to allow the companies to jointly develop cybersecurity solutions for specific industries and applications, meaning customers will have more access to major products and customized, flexible cybersecurity solutions, with Fortinet applications integrated with Schneider Electric offers.
