Waterfall Security Solutions, a provider of security solutions for industrial control networks and critical infrastructures, has teamed with energy management solutions maker Schneider Electric to offer Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways to Schneider’s customers.
Protecting the safety and reliability of industrial control system networks in the face of increasingly sophisticated cyberattack capabilities is a priority for both Waterfall and Schneider Electric, the firms said in a joint announcement.
Starting with the Schneider Electric control system platforms, the Waterfall suite of “stronger-than-firewall” solutions improves control system network perimeter security and simplifies compliance with industrial cybersecurity standards and best-practices, ranging from the power sector’s NERC CIP standards to the cross-industry IEC 62443 and NIST documents.
Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateway technologies are deployed widely in electric power, water, and oil and gas sectors, and the company’s new FLIP and secure inbound/outbound gateway solutions are being deployed in the electric sector.
“Schneider Electric’s partnership with Waterfall is the next step in our commitment to assist customers in operating secure systems by complementing our secure core offer with best-in-class partners,” said David Doggett, Cyber Security Program Director at Schneider Electric.
“The continued support of Schneider Electric for strong cybersecurity will have a significant impact on the security posture of critical infrastructure sites across many industries,” said Lior Frenkel, CEO and co-founder of Waterfall.
