Watchdog Cyber and Waterfall Security Partner to assist Michigan-based Manufacturers to securely connect their IT and OT Networks

Waterfall Security Solutions is pleased to announce a partnership with Watchdog Cyber. The new partnership will help Watchdog’s manufacturing clients securely connect their IT networks to their industrial OT networks, an important step that will improve the overall industrial efficiency of factories, both in terms of security, as well as helping optimize performance and productivity.

Waterfall Security Solutions is a leading provider of OT security, providing a range of unbreachable Unidirectional Security Gateways that consist of a combined hardware/software solution that securely connects OT networks to IT networks, allowing for safe remote monitoring, as well as enabling secure and unlimited connectivity to third-party vendors. Watchdog Cyber is a comprehensive cyber-attack mitigation solution provider based in Michigan, with a strong presence in the local manufacturing industry. The new partnership leverages the best of both companies and will provide manufacturers with the same level of unbreachable cybersecurity that is used by critical industries such as airports, railways, and nuclear power plants. Most importantly, manufacturers will be able to take advantage of unbreachable cloud connectivity, securing routine tasks such as predictive maintenance and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).

“Our primary emphasis lies in aiding industrial manufacturers with the secure integration of their IT and OT systems. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Waterfall Security Solutions, a renowned leader in ICS/SCADA cybersecurity.” said Dan Heimler, CEO and Co-Founder of Watchdog Cyber, “Waterfall’s cutting-edge Unidirectional Gateway technology perfectly aligns with the security requirements of contemporary industrial enterprises, granting our manufacturing clients complete access to their innovative solutions.”

“With a growing threat environment and a decreasing appetite for risk, manufacturers of all kinds are hardening their cyber defenses, and that includes protecting their industrial operations.” said Lior Frenkel, CEO of Waterfall Security Solutions. “Watchdog Cyber and their very strong existing relationships with manufacturers will help accelerate the process of securing the OT/IT boundary of their operations while enabling secure remote monitoring that also allows for secure connectivity to third-party vendors, which is an important function for performance optimization.”

As efficiency and automation become more important within the manufacturing industry, the need to modernize and protect factory operations has become ever more important. This new partnership between Watchdog and Waterfall will help accelerate the process of securing OT networks that need to be connected to IT networks, which will help lower final costs and reduce the risks that are associated with delaying the implementation of appropriate security measures.
