NIST, ANSSI, the ARC, the Gartner Group, and other experts have all issued best practice guidance as to the role of “unhackable” unidirectional security gateway technology in industrial control system (ICS) security programs. This expert consensus positions the gateways as unhackable, physical security for control systems whose worst-case compromise has unacceptable physical consequences.
Seamless enterprise monitoring of industrial operations is essential to modern businesses – industrial data is vital to planning, optimization and efficiency initiatives at industrial enterprises. However, all paths through a firewall that permit data to leave also permit attacks to enter control system networks. Waterfall’s Unidirectional Gateways enable safe enterprise-wide monitoring of vital control systems, with disciplined control. Expert consensus has positioned Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways as vital to securing safe, correct, continuous and efficient physical operations for important industrial control system installations.
INDUSTRIAL CONTROL SYSTEM SECURITY IS EVOLVING
Unidirectional Gateways have emerged as important security enablers for enterprise connectivity, efficiency, and Industrial Internet of Things initiatives. Sign up here to download your free copy of the Emerging Consensus whitepaper.
