SCADAfence and Check Point Partner to Secure Smart Manufacturing Networks

Partnership allows smart manufacturers to secure their entire industrial environment with a passive, risk-free solution, providing visibility, real-time detection capabilities and improved separation between IT and OT

BE'ER SHEVA, Israel, February 24, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —

SCADAfence, a pioneer in securing industrial networks in smart manufacturing industries, announced today an alliance with Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP). This collaboration mitigates the inherent risks for manufacturers, such as operational downtime, process manipulation and theft of intellectual property, that can come with connecting operation technology (OT) networks with traditional information technology (IT) networks, in the pharmaceutical, chemical, automotive and food & beverage industries.

"We are excited to join forces with Check Point to provide manufacturers with a holistic solution that effectively protects IT/OT environments," said Yoni Shohet, Co-founder and CEO of SCADAfence. "Together, we have developed a platform that strikes the perfect balance between security and availability by ensuring operational continuity while maximizing the pace of manufacturing."

While combining OT and IT environments reduces costs and improves productivity for smart manufacturing companies, connecting the two environments opens OT networks to an array of risks, from malicious malware to non-malicious human error. The integration of SCADAfence's solution and Check Point's industry-leading security solutions for IT and OT creates a comprehensive, risk-free security solution for entire industrial networks and provides security administrators with a single pane of glass for IT and OT security incidents. With SCADAfence's passive, non-intrusive solution, administrators and operators have visibility of day-to-day industrial operations and real-time detection of cyber-attacks. Smart manufacturers can also leverage the technology to improve their planning of IT/OT network separation, and internal OT segmentation within industrial networks.

"Check Point's ICS/SCADA cyber security solutions provide advanced threat prevention paired with ruggedized appliance options and comprehensive protocol support with full visibility and granular control of SCADA traffic in order to ensure vital industrial assets are never compromised," said Alon Kantor, vice president of business development, Check Point. "We are pleased to have SCADAfence join us in offering an augmented solution to help keep customers one step ahead in securing these critical infrastructure and industrial control organizations"

SCADAfence will present this joint solution, and other innovative solutions for securing manufacturing industries, at the RSA Conference as part of the Israeli Export Institute delegation, starting Tuesday, March 1st, at the South Expo at booth #S333
