Waterfall Security Solutions Announces Enterprise-Class Unidirectional Integrations

Four new replications support Oracle, Microsoft SQLServer and MySQL databases, and SAP Enterprise Resource Planning system

Waterfall Security Solutions [http://www.waterfall-security.com ], the leading provider of stronger-than-firewall security for critical infrastructure and industrial control systems, today announced four new enterprise-class integrations for its Unidirectional Security Gateway solution. Enabling seamless and secure control system integration with the heart of corporate data management solutions, Waterfall's Unidirectional Security Gateways now support Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL databases, as well as the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to streamline secure IT and operations systems integration.

The new replications allow for part or all of the real-time data from industrial control systems to be made widely available on corporate networks. The hardware-enforced Unidirectional Security Gateways replicate servers from industrial networks to corporate networks to provide corporate users and applications with access to real-time data while eliminating the risk that a cyber attack could breach the safety or reliability of the critical control systems from which are the source of the data.

"Waterfall has the broadest suite of off-the-shelf, hardware-enforced unidirectional integrations," says Lior Frenkel, founder and CEO of Waterfall.

"These new capabilities extend our lead over the competition, and demonstrate to our customers the flexibility our solutions offer to protect their control systems from cyber attacks, while still retaining access to critical industrial data."

Increased centralization of plant engineering functions and increased integration of plant control systems with corporate IT infrastructures are examples of trends which are driving increased connectivity of control system networks with corporate networks. Continued increases in the sophistication of cyber attacks though, underscore the steadily-increasing need to protect the safe and reliable operation of large physical assets.

"Relational databases and SAP systems are the very foundation of data integration in enterprise networks" adds Andrew Ginter, Waterfall's VP of Industrial Security. "The new replications allow Waterfall's solutions to populate these foundational corporate data repositories directly from control system networks, without the use of additional middleware or data movement steps. And as is the case with all of Waterfall's Unidirectional Security Gateway products, no online attack can pass back through the unidirectional hardware to put plant safety or reliability at risk."

What's This?
In a digital world inundated with advanced security threats, Intel Security seeks to transform how we live and work to keep our information secure. Through hardware and software development, Intel Security delivers robust solutions that integrate security into every layer of every digital device. In combining the security expertise of McAfee with the innovation, performance, and trust of Intel, this vision becomes a reality.

As we rely on technology to enhance our everyday and business life, we must too consider the security of the intellectual property and confidential data that is housed on these devices. As we increase the number of devices we use, we increase the number of gateways and opportunity for security threats. Intel Security takes the “security connected” approach to ensure that every device is secure, and that all security solutions are seamlessly integrated.
