SCADA systems using FactoryTalk View can now be safeguarded from remote cyberattacks
Rosh HaAyin, Israel – August 8, 2017 – Waterfall Security Solutions, a global leader in cybersecurity technologies for critical infrastructure and industrial control systems, today announced addition of FactoryTalk® View Site Edition (SE), a supervisory-level HMI system from Rockwell Automation, to Waterfall’s wide range of support for industrial software integrated with Waterfall’s unidirectional communications technology.
FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) improves operations by capturing data plant-wide at manufacturing, production, and energy sites. The data capture is enhanced with management and analytical capabilities for improved decision-making. Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways replicate the FactoryTalk View servers from industrial networks to corporate networks, while creating an impassable, physical barrier eliminating the possibility of external online attacks from reaching back into the industrial environment. With Waterfall’s Unidirectional Gateways, industrial networks’ operations are safeguarded from remote cyberattacks by physical protections that are immune to software bugs, vulnerabilities and misconfiguration.
“Adding Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk View to the already impressive list of supported integrations for Waterfall’s solutions suite enables more manufacturing and production plants to benefit from airtight cybersecurity against remote attacks,” said Lior Frenkel, CEO and Co-founder at Waterfall Security Solutions.
Unidirectional Security Gateways, pioneered and patented by Waterfall Security, have been deployed worldwide since 2007. As an evolutionary alternative to firewalls, Unidirectional Gateways provide cyber protection for industrial systems at a level firewalls simply cannot. Upon deploying Waterfall’s Unidirectional Gateways, critical infrastructure and industrial sites enjoy safe and reliable IT/OT integration, vendor and cloud services access, and remote monitoring.
“Numerous market segments such as utilities, transportation, and manufacturing already embrace and use our solutions today. Adding FactoryTalk View extends that reach, enabling seamless integration of our off-the-shelf, industrial perimeter cyber solution with even more industrial networks for the best protection available against remote cyberattacks,” added Frenkel.
