Leading Israeli energy provider Delek Pi Glilot has selected Cyberbit’s SCADAShield to provide a multi-layered response to protecting its Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) infrastructure.
Critical national infrastructure is a prime target for cyber attackers. Industrial control networks employ unique legacy devices and use proprietary ICS/SCADA protocols, thus requiring specialised security technologies. Existing solutions largely focus on the OT and OT devices, but OT and IT networks are now converging, with IT applications such as Human Machine Interfaces interconnecting with OT devices and networks. Attackers take advantage of this vulnerability to initiate the attack in the IT network and use it as a gateway to the sensitive OT network. Through its SCADAShield product, Cyberbit, a subsidiary of Elbit Systems, provides multilayered IT and OT security that addresses this challenge to deliver fast and reliable detection of IT-to-OT attacks.
“Critical infrastructure organisations are beginning to realize that a SCADA security solution is only a fraction of the story,” Adi Dar, CEO of Cyberbit, observed. “Multi vector IT/OT attacks require a tightly integrated multi-layered solution and strategy, and I am happy to support Delek in driving this forward-thinking strategy within their organisation.”
