Uptime is the absolute for companies in the critical infrastructure sector. Utilities, energy, transport, telecommunications, and other services must be “on” all the time. The imperative of service availability can often means less resources are available to focus on security—for many in the critical infrastructure sector, firewalls, and antivirus software are not even universal. Multi-national companies and governments are also faced with the challenge of protecting their proprietary data, whether it’s geographic surveys for oil and gas production or access controls to nuclear power plants.
The future brings new levels of inter-connectedness and access with more traffic, data, and users (partners, suppliers, consumers) across the network. Tomorrow’s grid may be smarter, but it will definitely be more vulnerable. Clearly the inherent protection of closed systems is gone. Organizations must secure legacy process control and SCADA systems, designed for a non-networked environment, even as increased standards and regulations raise costs in a world of diminishing resources where it is hard to compete for capital and network security expertise.
Today’s advanced threats are led not just by individuals but by organizations, often with better technology than their targets. Cyber criminals are smarter, more persistent, and more focused on high-value assets. New attacks and methods of exploitation show that critical infrastructure entities have become a target of choice for deliberate and skilled attackers. Existing security solutions improve on the shortcomings of past products and services, but fall short.
It’s time for a new approach to secure sensitive data from advanced threats and the resulting data breaches.
Built on a patented Deep Session Inspection®, platform, the Fidelis XPS™ is the industry's only network security solution capable of seeing, studying, and stopping advanced threats in real-time by uniquely working at the session-level.
