Technology & Products
Unidirectional Security Gateways are a combination of hardware and software, offering absolute protection with complete network visibility.
The hardware transmits information from industrial and control networks to external networks but is physically incapable of propagating any online cyber attack back into the protected network.
The software connectors duplicate servers and simulate devices, allowing enterprise users and applications to maintain bidirectional access to OT data from the replicated servers. All data permitted for sharing with the enterprise is accessible within the replicas.
How it works
An industrial network safely to an IT network
The industrial network with hardware enforced technology
Real-time operational servers to the enterprise IT network
Waterfall’s flagship WF-600 Unidirectional Security Gateway provides unbreachable protection for OT / industrial control system networks. The WF-600 gateway provides OT network perimeter protection with a hardware enforced, physical barrier preventing remote attacks, malware, DOS attacks, ransomware and human errors from entering the protected network.Learn more
The WF-500 Unidirectional Security Gateway offers unbreachable industrial protection, enables safe IT/OT integration, secure remote access, and unlimited industrial network monitoring.Learn more
WF-500 DIN RAIL
The Waterfall WF-500 DIN Rail is a Unidirectional Security Gateway in a compact design that allows space-constrained sites to benefit from Waterfall’s unbreachable physical protection from cyber attacks on industrial networks.Learn more
Waterfall for IDS
Waterfall for Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) enables IT networks to safely monitor OT systems to detect intrusion attempts by preventing the risk of anything going back into the OT networks via the IDS.Learn more
The Waterfall Secure Bypass Module provides physical protection for emergency and other remote support mechanisms, while providing the industrial site with physical control over the frequency and duration of remote access. Secure Bypass provides secure remote access for trusted insiders.Learn more
The Waterfall FLIP is a type of Unidirectional Gateway whose orientation can be physically reversed, enabling safe scheduled updates to OT networks without the vulnerabilities firewalls always introduce.Learn more
The Waterfall Blackbox provides a tamper-proof online repository that can survive a cyber attack, preventing attackers from hiding evidence of how they entered a network and their malicious actions within it.Learn more
Who we protect
Cybersecurity for power plants
Power utilities rest easy knowing that remote cyber attacks cannot reach through their Unidirectional Gateways to mis-operate control systems responsible for worker and public safety, for preventing damage to long-lead time turbines and other equipment, or for assuring continuous and efficient production of electric power.
Cybersecurity for oil & gas
Owners and operators of offshore platforms, pipelines and refineries rest easy knowing that no cyber-sabotage attack is able to penetrate Unidirectional Gateway hardware to put at risk worker or public safety, the environment, long-lead-time equipment and reliable production and operation, without unplanned shutdowns.
Cybersecurity for rails
Rail and metro system operators rest assured when Unidirectional Gateways are deployed to protect vital networks including switching systems, electric power systems and operations control centers from cyber attacks originating on IT or Internet networks, no matter how sophisticated such attacks are now, or might become in the future.
Cybersecurity for facilities
Data centers, airports, government and military campuses and other very important facilities operators sleep well knowing that Unidirectional Gateways are unbreachable in the face of attacks traversing Internet-exposed IT networks to put public safety, important equipment and continuous & connect operations at risk
Cybersecurity for water Treatment
With Unidirectional Gateways deployed, municipal leaders can be confident of continuous and correct operation of their automation systems and water treatment infrastructure , even in the face of the most sophisticated of attacks coming across the Internet, both today and long into the future.
Cybersecurity for manufacturing
Nobody wants to be in next week's headlines explaining how another dozen plants were taken down by ransomware or other cyber attacks. Neither ransomware nor the most sophisticated of the Internet's attacks can breach Waterfall's Unidirectional Gateways to pose any threat to product quality or to continuous, and correct manufacturing operations,
Cybersecurity for governments
Governments own a large fraction of the world's critical industrial infrastructures, and must be prudent operators of such infrastructures for their populations. With Unidirectional Gateways protecting power generation, pipelines, water treatment systems and other industrial infrastructures essential to modern society, governments and societies can rest easy knowing that no cyber attacks or ransomware, no matter how sophisticated such attacks are or become in the future, can penetrate Unidirectional Gateways to put infrastructures and public safety at risk.
