Acquisition expands Rockwell’s cybersecurity protection for customers
Rockwell Automation (NYSE:ROK), the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, today announced it completed its acquisition of Verve Industrial Protection, an industry-leading asset inventory system and vulnerability management solution. This acquisition will expand Rockwell’s cybersecurity offerings and help build resiliency and security of customers’ operations.
“We are excited to welcome Verve’s team to Rockwell Automation,” said Matt Fordenwalt, senior vice president, Lifecycle Services at Rockwell Automation. “In today’s environment, it’s hard for many organizations to stay ahead of threats and keep their operations safe.
