Exclusive Networks: New OT Security Agreement with Radiflow in Italy

   Apr 18, 2024 | Radiflow team

Exclusive Networks, a global cybersecurity specialist for trusted digital infrastructure, announces a new distribution agreement with Radiflow, a global leader in Operations Technology (OT) cybersecurity and risk management solutions.

Radiflow’s solutions are designed to defend critical networks in industrial and manufacturing settings. Its solutions protect more than 8,000 critical facilities worldwide.

The digital transformation is evolving at a rapid pace in the industrial sector, blurring the boundary between Information Technology (IT) and OT. The widespread use of IIoT devices and connected machinery poses an increasing risk of vulnerability to cyberattacks. This risk is further exacerbated by the need to maintain uninterrupted business operations, making it difficult and costly to upgrade or replace machinery with a long lifecycle. For all these reasons, industrial cybersecurity is a challenging field.

With a view to offer cybersecurity solutions designed specifically to solve OT security needs to system integrators and resellers, Exclusive Networks Italia has chosen to introduce Radiflow’s solutions for threat detection, centralized security, and cyber risk management in ICS/SCADA systems to its solutions catalog.

Commenting on the new distribution agreement, Augusto D’Antinone, CEO of Exclusive Networks Italia, said, “Operational Technology (OT) represents a specialized sector that requires specific skills and solutions. Radiflow’s experts have considerable experience in the OT world and our partnership agreement represents an added value for our customers, who can count on technologies and services of the highest level which have already been adopted by other enterprises in the industry around the world. This is another crucial element in fortifying cyber resilience for Italian manufacturing companies, which are facing escalating threats from cybercriminals.”

“OT security plays a crucial role in safeguarding the operational continuity of networks governing diverse production facilities, including pharmaceutical, chemical, transportation, energy, and oil & gas. In critical infrastructure scenarios, cyberattacks have the potential to cause severe damage, disrupt essential services, and result in significant economic loss or even human lives,” said Mark De Simone, Sales and Business Development Senior Director, Italy at Radiflow. Investment in OT security has become a much more present issue on the tables of corporate boards. Our solutions and Exclusive Networks’ expertise can help channel partners enable digital transformation in the industrial world safely without stopping productivity.”

According to Luca Balzola, Technical Director of Exclusive Networks, “the partnership with Radiflow will empower our customers to navigate the escalating threat of cyberattacks in the manufacturing sector. Serious attacks affecting this sector are surging in Italy faster than in the rest of the world: the latest data from the Clusit Report 2024 show a 65% increase in 2023 compared to 2022, compared to 12% increase worldwide. This underscores the urgent need for manufacturing companies to assess their risk exposure and bolster their technological infrastructure.”

“With the digitization of industrial environments, cyber security can no longer be considered as a purely IT issue,” stressed Mario Esposito, Technical Leader Italy at Radiflow. “OT environments also need platforms that help monitor and protect machinery, infrastructure, and connected devices. Radiflow’s offering, which consists of an OT visibility suite and a risk assessment platform, enables enterprises to protect production processes and their critical infrastructure.”
