Industrial Cybersecurity for the Chemical Industry

Claroty provides chemical companies with the comprehensive industrial cybersecurity controls needed to safeguard their OT, IoT, IIoT, and BMS assets, as well as all other cyber-physical systems (CPS) that underpin their OT environments.

The Industrial Cybersecurity Challenge facing Chemical Companies

Escalating competition, sky-high inflation, increasingly varietal demand, ample M&A activity, and greater prioritization of sustainability are among many factors fueling digital transformation in the chemical industry. From new innovations that optimize mixing and cooling, to cloud connectivity that integrates ERP and MES data across enterprise and plant networks for production and cost efficiencies, to robotic controllers and container handling systems that boost throughput while enhancing safety — the benefits of automation, IT/OT connectivity, and CPS are why their manual, analog counterparts are now relics of the past.

Unfortunately, for many chemical companies, these benefits are being outpaced by industrial cybersecurity risks. This harsh reality has repeatedly manifested as ransomware and other attacks that exploit security weaknesses in the CPS on which production availability, integrity, and safety rely. Mitigating these risks and, ultimately, gaining cyber and operational resilience requires a new approach that extends beyond traditional, IT-oriented security solutions. Enter Claroty.

Key Principles for Securing OT in the Chemical Industry

Securing the OT environments that underpin chemical manufacturing requires that companies follow three key principles:

1. Gain visibility into all CPS in your OT environment

A comprehensive inventory of all OT, IoT, IIoT, and BMS assets — and all other CPS — that underpin your OT environment across each plant is the foundation of effective industrial cybersecurity. It’s also why Claroty has long prioritized our ability to deliver the industry-leading visibility that our chemical customers need to secure their most critical assets and operations.

2. Integrate your existing IT tools & workflows with OT

Since most CPS use proprietary protocols and legacy systems, they are simply incompatible with traditional IT solutions — but that doesn’t mean they have no place in OT. Rather than urge customers to expand their already-extensive tech stacks, Claroty integrates with them. As a result, our chemical customers can simply extend their existing tools and workflows from IT to OT.

3. Extend your IT security controls & governance to OT

Unlike their IT counterparts, most OT environments lack essential cybersecurity controls and consistent governance. Claroty eliminates this gap. After providing visibility into all CPS and integrating your IT tools and workflows with OT, Claroty extends your IT controls to OT — unifying your security governance and driving all use cases on your journey to cyber and operational resilience.

Driving Cyber Resilience from IT to OT with Claroty

The Claroty journey to cyber resilience empowers chemical manufacturers to extend — and further optimize — the following cybersecurity use cases and governance areas from your IT to OT environment:

Asset Discovery

Claroty’s automated asset discovery capabilities create a centralized inventory that serves as the foundation for all cyber resilience use cases, empowering chemical companies with real-time visibility into all OT, IoT, and BMS assets and all other CPS throughout your OT environment.

Exposure Management

Claroty extends your IT exposure management controls to OT by automatically identifying, assessing, and recommending remedial actions for all CPS exposures in your manufacturing environment, enabling you to prioritize and implement mitigations to minimize lateral risk transfer.

Network Protection

Claroty hardens OT environments in the chemical industry against threats by automatically defining network segmentation policies that can be easily enforced by your firewall and NAC solutions, as well as providing secure access purpose-built with controls for internal and third-party OT users.

Threat Detection

Claroty enables chemical companies to continuously monitor for and respond to the earliest indicators of threats — ranging from ransomware attacks, to equipment failures, to malicious insiders — before they impact production, safety, regulatory compliance, or other critical assets.

Extending Operational Resilience from IT to OT with Claroty

The Claroty journey to operational resilience empowers chemical companies to extend and optimize the following security and operational use cases and governance areas from your IT to OT environments:

Asset Discovery

Operational resilience starts with gaining full visibility into all CPS in your OT environment. Claroty’s automated asset discovery capabilities deliver just this — empowering chemical companies with the complete, real-time visibility you need as the foundation for all operational resilience use cases.

Change Management

Change management is essential to governance, compliance, maintenance, and procurement decisions enterprise-wide. Claroty empowers MoC programs across IT and OT with continuous asset and operational monitoring and flexible reporting to inform these and related decisions.

Asset Management

Claroty makes it easy for chemical companies to optimize asset management by leveraging in-depth asset insights and an enriched CMDB via ready-made integrations to monitor for asset updates, enable SLA compliance, and optimize supply chain management and procurement.

OT Remote Access

Claroty xDome Secure Access offers highly secure and granularly controlled remote access that is frictionless to use and administer and supports all OT remote access use cases key to chemical manufacturing: from OT remote maintenance, to auditing, to vendor management and more.

Simplifying Compliance for Chemical Companies

Complying with recommended standards and required regulations is a notoriously complex, ever-evolving endeavor for chemical companies. Claroty simplifies compliance not only with respect to cybersecurity but also in adjacent areas — from physical safety, to quality assurance, to supply chain, and more. Highlights include:

Regulations & Legislation

Claroty’s support for the full cyber-physical systems security journey supports and simplifies compliance with the requirements set forth by CFATS, TSA, NIS 2.0, RCE, FSMA, SOCI/SLACIP, FDA cGMPs, and many more.

Recommended Practices & Standards

Compliance with the following recommended practices and standards is enabled by the controls offered by Claroty’s portfolio: CISA CGPs, NIST CSF, ISO 27001, NIPP, CIS, U.S. Bioeconomy Executive Order, and many more.
