The partnership enables customers to gain access to a full-scope of cybersecurity defense portfolio via Valmet’s Cybersecurity Services. This is not limited to protecting only Valmet’s products and systems, but the whole customer OT (operational technology) landscape.

Valmet has signed a partnership with TXOne Networks, a global leader in ICS and industrial IoT (IIoT) security. Together they will better equip joint industrial automation customers with the protection they need for today’s vulnerable OT environments. The combination of TXOne Networks’s solutions for security inspection, endpoint protection, and network defenses with the leading Valmet’s automation and Industrial internet solutions, enhances the ability of industrial customers to better protect, respond, and recover from a cybersecurity incident with Valmet’s Cybersecurity Services. 

To maximize cybersecurity in a production environment, you need today's technologies that have been especially designed to be used in OT environments. We have identified TXOne solutions from all different OT security solutions to match the needs of providing network and endpoint protection and services. For example, applying security patches to OT systems is difficult and takes much more time than in IT systems. The TXOne Virtual Patching technology helps this by protecting Zero Day vulnerabilities on a network level before the actual patch is available and applied to the ICS system. This technology is now available to Valmet customers."

Ari Rajamäki, Cybersecurity Product Manager at Valmet 

“Cybersecurity is a team sport where Valmet, Customer, and Cybersecurity technology vendors are playing in the same team. By leveraging TXOne technologies, Valmet is able to supply a full-scope cybersecurity defense portfolio, not just to protect Valmet’s products and systems, but the whole customer OT landscape as a service by our local Service units. Valmet is committed to helping our customers to meet their overall cybersecurity targets and thus ensuring business continuity”, continues Ari.
