Products

Waterfall’s product portfolio can be found deployed throughout the world since 2007 offering unparalleled value in industrial and critical network cyber security. Every element of our unidirectional security gateway solution suite is stronger-than-firewalls and hardware-based. At the same time, your business and operational objectives are maintained by network replication.
Your costs of IT monitoring are drastically cut. You sleep better as our unidirectional gateway solutions safely secure industrial control systems IT/OT connections. They defeat advanced online attacks, pervasive viruses and botnets, remote control attacks, and any malware which routinely defeat firewalls and other IT-focused protection.

Unidirectional security gateway

Unidirectional security gateway

The Waterfall Unidirectional Security Gateway replaces firewalls in industrial and critical network environments with one-way communications, while enabling the business and operational processes to continue. When the Unidirectional Security Gateway is deployed, you have airtight protection to your control system or operations networks from attacks originating on external networks.

The technology has been verified by Idaho National Labs: “The physics of the unidirectional system prevent any data transmission from the low security enclave to the high security enclave.”

FLIP

FLIP

Waterfall FLIP is a hardware-enforced Unidirectional Security Gateway whose orientation is reversible. The Waterfall FLIP is “pointed” so that it replicates OT servers to IT networks routinely. By schedule, or by exception, an independent control mechanism inside the protected OT network triggers the FLIP hardware to change orientation, allowing information to flow back into the protected OT network as needed.

Digital Bond Labs assessed the security level of FLIP and concluded: “The fact that the FLIP is unidirectional at all times, and that the direction cannot be remotely manipulated, makes it more difficult for even a highly skilled attacker to penetrate as compared to a firewall.”

Secure Bypass

Secure Bypass

Waterfall’s Secure Bypass product can be deployed in parallel with our Unidirectional Gateways when select security procedures must be suspended for the duration of control system and plant emergencies. The Secure Bypass can never be activated remotely by any network attack however sophisticated the attack.

Unidirectional CloudConnect

Unidirectional CloudConnect

Waterfall’s CloudConnect uses Unidirectional Gateway technology to gather data from industrial sources such as historians, industrial control systems, OPC servers, and industrial devices. CloudConnect converts that data into a unified cloud-friendly format, such as XML files, relational databases, publish/subscribe protocols, or SOAP web services. CloudConnect transmits the unified data securely out of the site and into the industrial cloud.

CloudConnect’s foundational Unidirectional Gateway technologies ensure seamless connectivity with both industrial and cloud systems, and provide absolute protection from network threats that are fundamental to Internet-exposed networks and systems.
