Waterfall Security Solutions and Alstom announce a cybersecurity partnership to secure safety-critical and reliability-critical operations networks for railways and public transport.

Alstom is known as the global leader in rolling sock – delivering high speed trains and monorail. Alstom is also globally known for the user end of their mobility products. This has resulted in very connected systems – embedding privacy and cybersecurity in the DNA of Alstom’s products.

Increased Demand for Sharing Operational Data

In the age of increased business demand for sharing of railway operational and signaling system data to non-secure networks, Rail system operators urgently need cybersecurity partnership designs and solutions that can meet the challenge of sharing of information while preventing cyber-attacks. When 100% prevention from online cyber-attacks is required, Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways are the clear choice.

Waterfall Unidirectional Gateways replace one layer of firewalls in an industrial network environment, providing industrial control systems with absolute protection from targeted attacks, secure enterprise-wide visibility, and safe remote access. The Gateways replicate servers, emulate industrial devices, and translate industrial data to cloud formats, enabling vendor monitoring, industrial cloud services, and visibility into operations for modern enterprises and customers.

Waterfall and Alstom’s Cybersecurity Partnership

Waterfall and Alstom’s cybersecurity partnership is based on a common commitment to increase the security of the railway industry.

“[Waterfall’s] ability to provide physical protection is essential for us”

Waterfall has a steadily growing install basis in the rail industry and Alstom, the global leader in smart and green mobility, is already integrating Waterfall’s patented unidirectional gateways in projects.

“Together, we bring to public transport operators Waterfall’s expertise and technologies, which have been proven and applied in other critical infrastructures”
