Extreme Visibility Down to the I/O Level: Claroty

thesiliconreview-amir-zilberstein-founder-ceo-claroty-18Claroty was conceived to secure the safety and reliability of industrial control networks that run the world from cyber-attacks. The Claroty Platform is an integrated set of cybersecurity products that provides extreme visibility, unmatched cyber threat detection, secure remote access, and risk assessments for industrial control networks (ICS/OT).

Claroty is a completely passive monitoring system and imposes zero impact on the OT network. No active scanning is required and there’s no need to install software on endpoint devices. It is not just ICS cybersecurity experts. The company is native OT speakers and fluent in every protocol.

Advanced CoreX Technology

Claroty's advanced CoreX engine powers the Claroty Platform and is the foundation on which it’s integrated a suite of products is built on. It was specifically designed to ensure safe, secure and reliable operations in large, complex industrial networks. It is fully tuned to support limited computing power, smaller physical footprint, and specific scenarios requiring communication over low bandwidth.


Behavioral Analysis: CoreX employs advanced, behavior-based anomaly detection and sophisticated pattern matching for early identification of malicious activity.

Visualization: Correlate data and visually depict the complexity of communications pathways down to the lowest levels of the network.

Dissectors: Proprietary dissectors for all major IT and industrial network protocols, leveraging deep packet inspection to safely extract information from both serial and IP-based networks.

Products and Services

Continuous Threat Detection: Claroty’s flagship product, Continuous Threat Detection, provides extreme visibility, continuous threat and vulnerability monitoring, and deep insights into ICS networks.

Secure Remote Access: Claroty Secure Remote Access minimizes the risks remote users, including employees and 3rd parties, introduce to OT networks. It provides a single, manageable interface that all external users connect through, prior to performing software upgrades, periodic maintenance, and other support activities on assets within industrial control system networks.

Enterprise Management Console: Claroty Enterprise Management Console is a centralized management interface that consolidates data from Claroty products across multiple sites, and displays a unified view of assets, activities, and alerts, making it highly suitable for security operations center (SOC) deployments.

Security Posture Assessment: Claroty provides security teams with insights into the security risk posture of your OT network by running a comprehensive analysis of a packet capture (PCAP) file. With a detailed analysis of the assets and network communication patterns discovered and deep insights about weaknesses in your OT network, your teams have the information they need to fix hidden issues that may give an attacker a foothold or impact critical processes.
