Catapult & Kaon Security Partner in Cyber Security
Catapult Software is pleased to announce a new partnership with Kaon Security for the provision of security auditing and assessment services of ICS environments.
Kaon Security are cyber security experts that have been providing professional services and advice to New Zealand and Australian organisations in excess of 15 years. Kaon have had a focus on the local government and utilities sectors and so have experience in completing security audits in a variety of OT environments.
The Catapult partnership with Kaon will enable our customers to gain access to security assessments that will complement the ICS health checks that we deliver. As ICS environments become more susceptible to the risks of cyber attacks this is becoming a significant area of concern for many of our customers.
“Catapult have spent 25 years supporting our clients’ critical systems. The world is changing and every day new threats to the resilience of those systems emerge. “Security by Obscurity” is no longer a viable option. In partnering with Kaon, we can deliver world class expertise to help our customers navigate these threats and effectively secure their OT environments. The partnership with Kaon is a great step forward in delivering value to our customer base that looks to us for best practice leadership”. Tony Haresnape, Managing Director at Catapult Software.
“In many instances the air gap that used to exist between critical infrastructure control systems and connected business systems has gone. This has increased the risk of downtime and reputational damage to organisations resulting from potential malicious cyber attacks on their control systems. Our partnership with Catapult Software is aimed at helping their ICS customer base understand and improve their security posture where necessary” says Steve Macmillan, Managing Director at Kaon Security.
