Waterfall Security Solutions nnounced a collaboration with LogiLube to protect LogiLube’s customers’ industrial sites from online cyber attacks. By deploying Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways, LogiLube’s customers benefit from real-time, actionable and predictive analytics with protection from cyber risks due to Internet and cloud connections.
“We chose Waterfall’s Unidirectional Gateway product because it enhances LogiLube’s innovative predictive analytic solutions with the highest security to mitigate risks associated with cloud and Internet connections. It complements our innovative predictive data analytic solutions for the oil and gas and other industries,” said Bill Gillette, CEO of LogiLube.
LogiLube’s cloud-based SmartOil solution improves equipment uptime and reliability by monitoring oil properties and by generating actionable, real-time data analytics. Optimized for fleets of high horsepower natural gas-fired engines powering reciprocating compressors, SmartOil provides actionable data and predictive analytics on machine health. It measures attributes such as oil temperature, pressure, viscosity, water contamination and dielectric strength. This data reduces compressor downtime and increases operating revenue for midstream clients.
“Thanks to their selection of Waterfall solutions, the fact that LogiLube’s SmartOil solution is cloud-based should raise no concerns of cyber risks for their clients,” said Lior Frenkel, CEO and co-founder of Waterfall Security Solutions. “Now, unidirectional security technology is enabling LogiLube’s customers’ midstream oil and gas facilities to use and benefit from cloud services, while maintaining safety levels previously attainable only on premises.”
Waterfall recently launched its Unidirectional CloudConnect product to enable cloud connections for the many industrial sectors eager to move to the cloud and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT), but hesitant to expose their control system networks to the vulnerabilities of firewalls and software-based cybersecurity solutions.
With Waterfall, IIoT vendors can offer their customers improved operational efficiencies through innovative products and services, and still assure those customers will receive only the beneficial impacts.
