Uniloc announced NetAnchor, a solution designed specifically to control access to systems and information particularly in industries designated as critical infrastructure, including water, power, oil and gas, chemicals and transportation.
Organizations and industries designated as critical infrastructure require security solutions that prevent the disruption of mission-critical applications and protect valued assets.
The situation is compounded for these organizations due to industrial control systems that operate differently from sector to sector and from standard IT systems. NetAnchor provides strong authentication using the patented Uniloc Physical Device Recognition (PDR) technology to grant authorized access to systems and communications networks with minimal overhead.
The implementation of the NetAnchor server software, security appliance and management software creates a trusted-device network in which only authenticated devices are allowed to communicate. Authorized client machines are identified using Uniloc’s PDR technology to generate a device fingerprint based on the unique and inherent characteristics of each device. This fingerprint becomes an authentication credential that is locked to that device.
