Industrial Defender and Waterfall Security Solutions Partner to Safely Transmit Cybersecurity Data in Operational Technology Environments

This partnership combines Industrial Defender’s deep expertise in operational technology (OT) data collection and normalization with Waterfall’s industry-leading Unidirectional Gateways to secure OT environments.

Foxborough, MA, October 22, 2020 Industrial Defender, a market leader in OT security management, and Waterfall Security Solutions, the OT security company, today announced a new partnership to secure OT networks, industrial operations, and critical infrastructures.
