Safe OT visibility, easier than ever
Rosh HaAyin, Israel – Mar 2, 2021 – Waterfall Security Solutions, the OT security company, today announced an improved and upgraded Waterfall for Intrusion Detection Systems(IDS) product. The new product enables enterprise Security Operations Centers (SOCs) to monitor OT network traffic without risk, and without introducing new hosts into IT or OT networks.
OT IDS sensors are best deployed on IT networks for straightforward management but must have access to OT network traffic to diagnose attacks and anomalies. Waterfall for IDS enables connectivity between OT network switches and IT networks without risk to monitored OT networks. The new and upgraded Waterfall for IDS provides statistics, heartbeat monitoring, traffic monitoring and visibility into IT networks, all without introducing new host computers on either the monitored OT network or monitoring networks. Functions that were previously carried out by a host computer on the IT network are now carried out by gate array logic exclusively.
“Waterfall Security Solutions continues to innovate, simplifying the deployment of our powerful and safe Waterfall for IDS product,” said Lior Frenkel, CEO and Co-Founder of Waterfall Security Solutions. “OT intrusion detection and network monitoring are important functions for industrial enterprises, and Waterfall Security Solutions meets the need for safe OT monitoring without introducing new hosts to configure or manage on either IT or OT networks.”
