TÜV Rheinland, a leader in testing, inspection and certification services, today announced the company has entered into a strategic partnership with Obrela Security Industries, a company which provides security analytics and cyber risk management services to identify, analyze, predict and prevent highly sophisticated security threats in real time. Together, they will offer Managed Detection & Response (MDR) cybersecurity services worldwide. MDR services quickly detect particularly sophisticated cyberattacks and respond to them in real time.

Advanced Solutions for Cybersecurity

Using the MDR services, Obrela and TÜV Rheinland collect data from a company’s IT and OT infrastructure, relate this data to each other and convert it into usable information. Experts are able to use the information provided to help recognize and determine whether cyberattacks are imminent, enabling companies to take defensive measures in real time. "Our customers limit the potential impact of cyberattacks on their IT systems with such advanced solutions for cybersecurity," says Wolfgang Kiener, Global Head Advanced Threat Center of Excellence at TÜV Rheinland.

Operational Technology (OT)

Operational Technology is name given to the computerized systems used control physical assets such as valves, motors and pumps. Its use is prevalent across many industries and sectors including oil and gas, transportation, building management systems, water treatment plants and critical infrastructure. Experts from TÜV Rheinland already have identified Operational Technology as a frontline for cyberattacks.

International Offer

With this partnership, TÜV Rheinland is strengthening its international range of services in the area of Managed Security Services for the detection of cyberattacks around the clock, in real time. The partnership between TÜV Rheinland and Obrela is off to a strong start, having just won a major customer from the German banking sector. "The many years of experience and know-how of the two companies create the best conditions for long-term and successful cooperation," says George Patsis, CEO at Obrela Security Industries. "Our goal is to work with TÜV Rheinland to offer the most advanced cybersecurity services in the German market and internationally.“
