Nozomi Networks

Nozomi Networks accelerates digital transformation by protecting the world’s critical infrastructure, industrial facilities and government organizations from cyber threats.

Global leader in industrial cyber security

Nozomi Networks is a leader in industrial cyber security, delivering the best solution for real-time visibility to manage cyber risk and improve resilience for industrial operations and critical infrastructure. Innovating the use of artificial intelligence, the company helps the largest infrastructure facilities around the world see and secure their critical industrial control networks. Nozomi Networks supports critical infrastructure sectors such as energy, manufacturing, mining, transportation and utilities, making it possible to tackle escalating cyber risks to operational technology (OT) networks.

Over the past few decades, the shift to smart grid electrical infrastructure and industrial internet of things (IIoT) technologies has been transformational in driving operational excellence but has come at the expense of opening operational and information networks to cyber threats. As a result, cyber security solutions, particularly those focused on protecting Industrial Control Systems, are critical to the reliability and safety of infrastructure and industrial assets and play an outsized role in the transition to a more intelligent, connected and decarbonized future.
