Ultra Electronics will be launching its new SCADA protection solution, EnergyGuard, at October’s Oil & Gas ICS Cyber Security Forum.
EnergyGuard is designed to protect the devices at the critical edge of the network interfacing with the real world. It acts as a personal bodyguard, providing defense-in-depth protection from cyber (including network) and physical attack.
It does this by integrating a number of discrete protection mechanisms to assure regulated access and communication with the more vulnerable and critical control and monitoring devices.”
EnergyGuard’s cyber security capabilities have been evaluated within the National SCADA Test bed sponsored by the US Department of Homeland Security and operated by the US Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory. It has been in use by the US Department of Defense for the past 3 years.
This Oil and Gas ICS Cyber Security Forum is supported by 50 international organizations and will serve to provide practical solutions to the enterprise security concerns that run alongside the desire to have real time management information to improve efficiency and productivity across the Oil and Gas supply chain, particularly when SCADA and other ICS systems are incorporated in the enterprise information mix.
