Israel's National Gas Transmission Company Selects Waterfall's Unidirectional Connectivity Solutions for Network Security

Israel National Gas Lines (INGL) is Secured by Waterfall Security Solutions

TEL AVIV, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Waterfall Security Solutions Ltd., the leading provider of secure unidirectional connectivity for Process Control systems, SCADA systems, Remote Monitoring and Segregated Networks announced today the successful operation, for the past several months, of a Waterfall SCADA Monitoring Enabler (WF-SME) at INGL (Israel National Gas Lines Ltd.), Israel's national natural gas transmission company. Waterfall's patent pending solutions enable network segregation ("air gapping") and provide absolute and impenetrable security for operational networks.

INGL selected Waterfall's solution to enable the secure connection of its operational network managing Israel's largest international gas pipeline. In the past, such connections placed the operational network at risk from external cyber-attacks originating from the corporate network and the internet. Waterfall's solution allows for the secure replication, in real-time, of critical and operational SCADA information into the corporate network.

"Waterfall Security Solutions Ltd. is investing a major effort in providing unique security for the critical national infrastructures' environment, it being a high-profile target for cyber attacks. Waterfall's high-end solution is being increasingly adopted by major infrastructures around the world, providing them with the security and compliance solutions they require" said Lior Frenkel, Co-Founder and CEO of Waterfall Security Solutions.

"Waterfall's security concept and products are unique, and provide us with peace of mind, regulatory compliance and sound security, allowing us to focus on other important issues in our IT administration," said Gil Kashani, INGL's IT manager.
