Three Emerging Cyber Security Trends from NIAS

Last week, we exhibited at the NIAS Cyber Security Symposium in Mons, Belgium. The conference features presentations from security thought leaders, offers networking and exhibition opportunities, cyber workshops and even a hacking contest. NIAS is well known for its partnership with NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization), which was created to help bolster the communication between NATO and the private sector. This partnership helps to more effectively address cyber threats

How Secure File Transfer Can Improve Security & Productivity for Critical Infrastructure

Attacks are becoming more sophisticated as digital control systems grow in complexity, and require different levels of automation. Learn how to meet these increasingly sophisticated challenges, and secure any sensitive Industrial Control Systems and SCADA network with threat-free data flows using an SFT server. 

How Unidirectional Networks Are Used in Industrial Control Systems

Unidirectional networks, also commonly referred to as data diodes, unidirectional gateways, and cross-domain solutions, are a class of networking tools which allow for data to flow in a single direction to protect assets in high security systems. Industrial control systems (ICS) present a unique challenge for preventing malware outbreaks as the cost of a total system failure can be catastrophic. True data diodes utilize proprietary software to control data flow and allow one-way network traffic to be handled properly, as well as specialized hardware generally consisting of on transmit and one receive optical network components in order to create a physical barrier to prevent data going in the wrong direction.
