Rafael and leading Israeli companies “Israeli Operational Technologies Cyber Consortium” to provide defense solutions against cyber warfare activities by state actors as well as by independent rogue hackers to protect critical assets such as Transportation, Oil and Gas, Manufacturing, Water and Sewage, energy infrastructure and more.

Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd., a global leader in the development of state-of-the-art defense solutions, and the prime contractor of Israel’s national Cyber Emergency Response Team (CERT), has signed an initiative with leading Israeli cyber solutions partners to establish an Israeli Operational Technologies Cyber Consortium. The initiative is in cooperation with the Israel National Cyber Directorate.

The announcement was made at GISEC Global 2021 Cyber Security Expo in Dubai. The new consortium will provide end-to-end, cyber OT (Operational Technology) solutions, working with market-leading Israeli cyber OT partners with complementary areas of expertise, to address technological-cyber OT needs of large-scale organizations.

The Consortium’s comprehensive, cyber defense solutions, will address the national-level critical services and infrastructures needs, to provide defense against cyber warfare malicious activities by state actors, as well as by independent rogue hackers, to protect assets such as Transportation, Oil and Gas, Manufacturing, Water and Sewage, energy infrastructure, etc.

The Cyber OT Consortium will include Rafael, IEC, Tashan, Waterfall Security, Trapx, MobileGroup, Radiflow, CyberPro, XMCyber, Cervello, and Cynerio. Combining technological and methodological cyber OT solutions from best-of-breed leading Israeli companies, large, medium and small-size, will allow the Consortium to offer a comprehensive and integrated battle-proven solution, both for the technological and methodological aspects of the challenge. The partner-companies were carefully selected, following a lengthy assessment of their experience, track record, added value and technological advantages.

Gideon Weiss, Vice President of Business Development, Marketing & Strategy at Rafael’s Air and C4ISR Systems Division: “The new Consortium positions the State of Israel as a leader in the global Cyber OT industry. Known as the ‘Cyber Nation’, and globally recognized for its cybersecurity and OT-related expertise, Israel boasts a rich ecosystem of market-leading, pro-active companies, providing best-of-breed cyber defense solutions. The Consortium born out of this ecosystem will combine and utilize all the cybersecurity knowledge and technology developed in Israel. The consortium enables commercial flexibility and enhances our competitiveness, as well as our ability to team and partner with industries and with cyber-defense organizations within our markets.”

Roi Yarom, Director of Economy and Growth at the Israel National Cyber Directorate (INCD): “As part of our role to protect Critical Cyber Infrastructure (CCI), we encourage initiatives that provide know-how in this area, by joining forces and developing customized defense solutions for CCI. The unique knowledge and experience that have been accumulated in Israel, will undoubtedly contribute and become an asset in this endeavour.”
