Waterfall Security, Schneider Electric Join to Ensure Safety, Reliability of Control System Networks

Schneider Electric will leverage Unidirectional Security Gateways to improve cybersecurity protection available to its customers.

Waterfall Security Solutions and Schneider Electric have announced a partnership to bring stronger-than-firewall cybersecurity technologies to Schneider Electric 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.

Starting with the Schneider Electric control system platforms, the Waterfall suite of stronger-than-firewall solutions dramatically 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 products, including the FLIP and secure inbound/outbound gateway architecture for electric sector Balancing Authorities, are widening the scope of stronger-than-firewall perimeter protections.
