SecurityMatters and Waterfall Security Solutions inked a global partnership Monday to protect industrial control systems.
The joint solution integrates SecurityMatters’ SilentDefense network monitoring platform with Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways to enable industrial enterprises to continuously and centrally monitor industrial control networks.
SecurityMatters’ SilentDefense is an OT network monitoring and intelligence platform that allows visibility, threat detection capability and control of the network.
Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways are an alternative to perimeter firewalls that can integrate networks while creating a physical barrier for attacks against the network.
With this joint solution, security operations personnel can centrally monitor industrial network activity, status, and threats, without allowing any cyber attacks back into the industrial network.
“We are delighted to join the partner program of Waterfall Security, the de facto global standard in its category. By combining our two products, industrial operators will have full visibility and continuous monitoring into their assets, while assuring that no unauthorized communication makes it through,” said Damiano Bolzoni, SecurityMatters’ chief executive.
“Monitoring threats is essential to operational continuity, but central monitoring of our control networks demands interconnectivity with those networks, and such connectivity through firewalls entails unavoidable risks,” said Lior Frenkel, chief executive and co-founder of Waterfall Security Solutions. “Waterfall’s partnership with SecurityMatters comprehensively addresses these risks. The layer of protection provided by Waterfall’s unidirectional gateway technology means industrial enterprises can reap the benefits of central security monitoring, while keeping their industrial networks secure from online attacks.”
