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.

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.

Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to impr...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
