Cyberbit, whose cybersecurity solutions protect the world’s most sensitive systems, announced today that Samsung SDS, a subsidiary of the Samsung group and a global leading IT services company, selected her to protect customers against attacks on industrial control systems.
Industrial control networks are prime targets for cyberattacks and use legacy technologies that challenge conventional security systems. Samsung SDS and Cyberbit will collaborate to deploy Cyberbit’s SCADAShield, a non-intrusive deep-packet inspection system, optimized for ICS/SCADA networks, in the Korean market. SCADAShield will protect customers’ critical infrastructure against cyberattacks, minimize continuity risks, and improve network managers’ visibility across their ICS networks.
“Critical infrastructure facilities are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks because of their legacy hardware, unique communication protocols and the lack of security awareness within operational network managers.” said Adi Dar, Cyberbit’s CEO. “we will collaborate with Samsung to bridge this gap and help organizations in the Asia Pacific region avoid critical cyberattacks of potentially massive scale.” added Dar.
Sung Won Han, VP Cyber Security Team, Samsung SDS said, “We look forward to collaborating with Cyberbit. Our customers will be able to enhance resilience and competitiveness in the core infrastructure related to manufacturing and control.”
