As part of the cooperation between the two companies, Wireless Data Systems will integrate and support Radiflow’s industrial intrusion detection and security gateway products for power and water utilities, oil and gas, renewable energy and municipalities.

“Radiflow’s industrial cybersecurity products are an important addition to our technology portfolio,” said Rick Greene, president of Wireless Data Systems. “There is a definite and growing market need for cybersecurity and Radiflow’s offerings will help us better address the needs of our customers as well as attract new business.”

Radiflow’s industrial cybersecurity product portfolio is designed specifically for OT networks and ICS and SCADA systems used by critical infrastructure operators. Radiflow’s iSID system is an industrial intrusion detection system that maps a baseline of the operational assets and continuously monitors the industrial network for changes to the traffic and other anomalies. The company’s line of industrial security gateways facilitates secure communication with automation devices on SCADA and ICS networks at remote and distributed sites.

“With a wide market presence and excellent integration capabilities, WDS is an ideal VAR partner,” said Ilan Barda, chief executive of Radiflow. “We have high expectations that our new partnership with WDS will significantly enhance the security posture of customers in the market segments we are jointly serving.”

Radiflow and Wireless Data Systems report the two companies are already jointly engaged in significant opportunities with utilities providers and municipalities across the United States.
