10 Dec 2014 Waterfall Deploys Unidirectional Security Gateways in Japan
New York – December 10, 2014 – Waterfall Security Solutions (Waterfall Security), which specializes in critical infrastructure protection and industrial control systems security, announced today the successful installation of Waterfall’s stronger-than-firewalls, hardware-enforced Unidirectional Security Gateways at two sites in Japan addressing ICS security.
Cyber-attacks become more sophisticated with each day that passes, the safety and reliability of critical infrastructure sites is of growing concern to asset owners, regulators and governments around the world. Waterfall Security’s Unidirectional Security Gateway technology, which was developed to address these threats and to allow safe and secure integration between control networks and business networks, is being deployed worldwide. The recent Waterfall Security deployment in Japan was aimed at assisting and securing a chemical and natural gas plant, and was integrated with Azbil Corporation (formerly Yamatake-Honeywell) DOGS solutions, and TAKEBISHI OPC servers.
Lior Frenkel, CEO and Co-Founder at Waterfall Security, said, “These recent installations in Japan demonstrate continued momentum in the adoption of Waterfall’s stronger-than-firewalls technology in national critical infrastructures around the world. In Japan, as in other leading countries in Asia, industrial sites are applying best–practice security to defeat modern attacks on their control networks. Waterfall Security’s Unidirectional Security Gateways currently protect power plants, chemical sites and gas control systems in Japan, and we look forward to expanding our install base into other sectors.”
