BOSTON - ARIA Cybersecurity Solutions, a CSPi business (NASDAQ:CSPi), has announced a strategic partnership with a top global cybersecurity integrator to enhance the distribution and adoption of its operational technology (OT) security product, AZT PROTECT®. This collaboration is set to broaden the availability of the solution, which is designed to safeguard critical infrastructure in sectors like manufacturing, energy, and utilities.

The cybersecurity integrator, which serves approximately 6,000 companies worldwide, has incorporated AZT PROTECT into its product lineup, addressing a previously unmet need for its OT clients. The solution is engineered to defend against sophisticated zero-day and supply chain attacks, a growing concern as cyber threats to critical infrastructure increase.

AZT PROTECT differentiates itself from traditional antivirus and endpoint detection response systems by not requiring constant internet connectivity or frequent security updates, making it ideal for isolated or "air gapped" environments. It utilizes an AI-driven patented technique to analyze executable code and processes, aiming to prevent application exploits and thwart attacks in real time.

Gary Southwell, General Manager of ARIA Cybersecurity, expressed that the partnership is expected to significantly boost the sales reach of AZT PROTECT, which was introduced in July 2023 and is currently being used by various industrial companies, including a top 5 pharmaceutical manufacturer and a Fortune 500 chemical company, to protect their OT systems.

ARIA Cybersecurity Solutions, under the umbrella of CSPi Inc., focuses on delivering innovative cybersecurity solutions that protect critical assets and applications. Their products are designed to enhance incident response, automate breach detection, and disrupt cyberattacks.

This new agreement is anticipated to facilitate a quicker and more widespread adoption of AZT PROTECT across multiple industries, responding to the urgent need for enhanced OT environment protection. The partnership aligns with ARIA's mission to offer smarter cybersecurity solutions to a broad array of clients. Information on this development is based on a press release statement.
