AID Selects Waterfall Security Solutions for Korean Nuclear Generator
Mar 08, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Waterfall Security Solutions, a provider of unidirectional security gateways, and AID Corp., a systems integrator, announced the successful installation of Waterfall's Unidirectional Security Gateways at a Korean nuclear generator.
"Waterfall is very pleased with the reception we have had from Korean critical infrastructures," said Lior Frenkel, CEO and Co-Founder of Waterfall Security Solutions, in a release. "These organizations face very real physical and cyber threats and they have been quick to recognize the value of strong protection for their critical control networks."
AID Corp. uses Waterfall's technology to replicate Emerson Ovation servers.
Hyun Son, the Managing Director of Technical Sales at AID Corp., said, "Deploying conventional firewalls at industrial sites, and especially at nuclear generators, is always a concern. Every communications path through a firewall which lets information flow out to business networks also allows attacks to flow back into critical control system networks. The Waterfall technology completely eliminates this concern."
The Waterfall Unidirectional Gateways are a combination of hardware and software. The hardware transmits data out of critical networks without allowing any signal whatsoever back into those networks. The software part of the gateway solution integrates industrial systems to business systems through server replication.
Huh Hyung-Hoe, the President of AID Corp., said, "AID Corp has been serving Korean industries with plant information and automation systems for 25 years. In the last several years, the cyber threats we are tracking have increased sharply. AID Corp is working with leading security vendors, government experts, as well as with industrial and academic researchers to assemble integrated and effective industrial security systems in response to these threats. Waterfall's Unidirectional Security Gateways are significant evolution in control system network protection and we are pleased to be working with Waterfall to bring the benefits of strong network security to Korean industry."
