Waterfall Security recieves industrial sertification of its networking security tools
Corporation Waterfall Security Solutions has distributed a press release, informing that their dedicated universal Security Gateway WF-400 1Gbps product has acquired an EAL 4+ certification within the framework of a Common Criteria security testing program.
Common Criteria is the operationally proven, globally recognized process for estimation the resiliency of security solutions deployed in military, public, and common use assets, whereas EAL 4+ is the highest assurance rank under the Common Criteria Recognition Agreement (CCRA). Enterprise Waterfall is the prominent provider of hardened unidirectional security installations for industrial control systems in critical deployments. Lior Frenkel, Waterfall's CEO explained , "The EAL 4+ certificate is logical benchmark of Waterfall's commitment to get the top position in the industrial security industry. Waterfall's unidirectional security applications were the first to be evaluated by the SCADA Security professionals at Idaho National Labs, than have been mentioned by Frost & Sullivan as a Best Practice promoter for Industrial Network Security, and have acquired other local and global security and quality assurance." EAL 4+ mark assures clients that a security product is effective and was incrementally defined, probed and thoroughly verified. The rank to be resistant to high-attack-potential is an attachment, optional mode of certification, and means that even individuals with sufficient time, knowledge, technical expertise and associated hardware/software means will find it massively complicated to compromise the security solution. The certified Waterfall technology makes business-critical information to proceed from control sub-systems into business networks, without allowing any packages of information to penetrate back into the secured industrial overall network. The deployed algorithm blocks the informational traffic back into the secured platforms, specifically determining network-penetrating malware and screened remote-control attacks. "Solid network perimeter protection is clue to the protection and security of our basic industrial infrastructures," stated Andrew Ginter, Waterfall's Director of Industrial Security. "So called 'air gaps' which normally defended and protected control networks have massively been substituted by massively-weaker firewall deployments. Unidirectional Security Gateways make business-critical data to circulate out of a controlled network, without associated vulnerabilities of commonly used firewalls. Having this certificate in hands, Waterfall customers are getting more assured in their digital security programs." Waterfall Security Solutions Ltd. is the prominent provider of Unidirectional Security Gateways and data processing technologies for industrial management networks. Waterfall's Unidirectional Gateways massively cut the expenditures and regulatory issues, as well as with digital-security best-of-breed practices. Waterfall's portfolio is deployed in networks and critical infrastructures across North America, EMEA. Frost & Sullivan names Waterfall's solutions as delivering "optimum security for networks thru industrial verticals".
