Trend Micro through its association with TXOne Networks has collaborated with Oregon systems for the distribution of its operational technology (OT) security solutions in the region.

The deal was inked in the presence of Mohamed Mrad, Trend Micro’s channel director for the Middle East and North Africa, and Ali Mohammed, CEO of Oregon Systems.

This partnership will strengthen Trend Micro’s alliance and footprint whilst facilitating seamless distribution of an array of Trend Micro OT security solutions in the region.

“The alliance will help enterprises combat adversaries with a strong OT security framework whilst handling a high volume of operations,” said Ali Mohammed, CEO, Oregon systems.

“We understand the security needs of the region, and by leveraging the network base of Oregon – together we are at a vantage point to provide enterprises across key industries with OT security solutions so that they can continue to thrive in a secured environment, and are not disadvantaged by any security lapses in the future,” said Mohamed Mrad, Channel Director MENA, Trend Micro.

OT attacks are becoming increasingly prevalent. They have progressed beyond causing immediate process disruption, like as shutting down a plant to jeopardising the integrity of industrial environments with the intention of causing physical harm. Other recent events like the colonial pipeline ransomware attack have highlighted the need to have properly segmented networks for IT and OT. A recent report by Gartner predicts that cyber criminals will have weaponised operational technology (OT) environments by 2025, posing risk to human life.
