CYBERBIT's SCADAShield 5.0 Delivers Critical Infrastructure Security

June 13, 2016

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is used by industries across many sectors as an automation control system. It is the predecessor to the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications that is still being used because of the reliability the technology offers. The new SCADAShield 5.0 by CYBERBIT continues to deliver the same functionality, but it provides advanced security and operational continuity.

The advanced security and operational continuity are critical not only in SCADA deployments, but also in today's highly volatile digital security threat landscape. The vast majority of SCADA deployments monitor assets in air craft, energy, oil and gas, transportation, food and beverage, water and waste, and more. If the information the sensors monitor is compromised in any way, it can cause a lot of damage to a large number of the population.

CYBERBIT provides security, operational continuity and visibility solutions for critical infrastructure, and the company is bringing its experience in this field to integrate the necessary technology to ensure the assets SCADAShield 5.0 monitors and protects are safe.

Version 5.0 will have NetMap, which will introduce new levels of visibility for air transport logistics protocols to designated customers in the airport logistics space. With this system, users will be able to detect and respond to incidents to ensure operational continuity and minimize downtimes.

With a reliable network map, administrators can monitor and analyze all of the transmission in their networks to proactively manage any problems before it causes large scale damage.

Operations technology (OT) networks integrate highly complex and hard to map multiple systems and protocols. Without a clear understanding of the many different IT and OT network touch points, managers can quickly lose track of all IPs, devices and controllers in their own network.

The visibility NetMap provides gives managers a comprehensive graphic visualization of all OT and IT network components and their communications protocols.

In addition to NetMap, the new SCADAShield 5.0 also features support for TIM and SITA protocols to monitor air transport logistics networks at all times, and advanced machine learning to automate the creation of advanced whitelist rules.

Adi Dar, s CEO The CEO of CYBERBIT, Adi Dar, said, "CYBERBIT protects the most sensitive networks on the globe and it will continue to innovate and provide the robustness and reliability required by OT and IT managers of critical infrastructure organizations. OT and IT network visibility is a major industry pain and our new SCADAShield 5.0 upgraded version addresses it directly, as well as the organizations continuity and security concerns."
