Safely enabling OT visibility for electric power
Rosh HaAyin, Israel – November 24, 2021 – Waterfall Security Solutions, the OT security company, and Romanian systems integrator HTSS, are pleased to announce their successful collaboration to deploy Unidirectional Security Gateways to protect a major European power generation customer. This partnership demonstrates HTSS’ and Waterfall’s commitment both to providing the strongest in industrial security solutions to European power generation infrastructure, and to helping customers with professional services in meeting current and future regulatory and best practice requirements in the region.
