Waterfall Security Solutions signed a partnership pact with FireEye Inc. to integrate the FireEye cloud-based Threat Analytics Platform (TAP) with industrial networks using Waterfall’s Unidirectional CloudConnect.

This joint program allows FireEye users to monitor and protect their ICS networks using the cloud-based Helix service, while eliminating the threat of remote cyberattacks entering the monitored ICS environment.

Industrial businesses who previously refrained from using any cloud or IIoT services due to security concerns, can now remain confident their ICS networks are safe from external cyber risks.

“This new partnership is an important step toward improved security for industrial sites,” said Lior Frenkel, chief executive and co-founder of Waterfall Security Solutions. “Enabling rapid deployment of the market-leading FireEye Helix platform into industrial control networks is an important development in response to modern threats.”

“We feel that combining FireEye’s current ICS offerings and services with Waterfall’s Unidirectional CloudConnect will provide our clients with a comprehensive solution for their overall IT security requirements,” said Rich Stegina, vice president at FireEye. “With this additional capability, we are able to seamlessly connect customers’ industrial control systems and FireEye as a Service (FaaS) or TAP installations.”

The Unidirectional CloudConnect product is based on Waterfall’s patented unidirectional gateway technology, which physically prevents cyberattacks from entering into an industrial network.
