Secure-NOK announces partnership with Siemens, integrating Secure-NOKs cybersecurity solutions with the Siemens Ruggedcom portfolio of rugged network components.

Secure-NOK, a Norwegian cybersecurity company specializing in industrial cybersecurity, and Siemens have partnered to integrate Secure-NOK’s innovative cybersecurity solutions into Siemens portfolio of rugged industrial network components.

Today, industries such as power grids, hydropower plants, oil & gas installations, manufacturing facilities, transportation systems and many more are becoming increasingly digital, automated and interconnected. This makes them vulnerable to cyber-attacks (once a concern exclusive to IT infrastructure). Such cyber-attacks cause disruption and can potentially have catastrophic consequences.

Secure-NOK provides cutting edge solutions, helping owners of industrial assets and installations protect against the growing risk of cyber-attacks. Built into the Siemens portfolio of rugged network components, Secure-NOK’s innovative SNOK technology is now available to the market supplementing the Siemens’ Industrial Security portfolio. SNOK is a scalable, distributed, small data solution designed to perform local detection of malware, espionage, sabotage or other harmful cyber-events. SNOK is designed to be implemented on industrial sites, running on hardware with limited computing power.

“This partnership agreement represents a milestone for Secure-NOK” says Dr. Siv Hilde Houmb, Secure-NOKs CEO and Founder. “As a result, our solutions are now widely available through Siemens distribution channels globally. Also, through this agreement, Secure-NOK strengthens its position as a leader in providing cybersecurity solutions uniquely designed to fit industrial needs.”
