Dimension Data and Bayshore join forces to accelerate the adoption of real time ICS and OT protection, enforcement, and policy solutions across the Middle East
Durham, NC, and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – April 8, 2020 – Bayshore Networks, a leading provider of industrial cybersecurity policy and protection, today announced with Dimension Data, Middle East, LLC that they have partnered to deliver regional sales and support of Bayshore Networks ICS security solutions SCADAfuse®, SCADAwall™, and OTaccess™. Industrial plants and factory automation systems in many sectors such as manufacturing, oil & gas, chemical, mining, steel, power and utilities, water management, and other critical infrastructure can now benefit from a trusted technology provider within the region.
“Customers are transitioning to digital enterprise operations, and this in turn is increasing cybersecurity risks to production. We are committed to addressing industrial cybersecurity risk for our customers in this region,” said Ronald Powell, Regional Solutions Director for Dimension Data Middle East. “Our careful analysis is that Bayshore Network’s solutions are needed in our customer environments to help them protect and enforce cybersecurity in real time to preserve operations technology (OT) safety and availability.”
Bayshore Networks’ patented and award-winning industrial cybersecurity policy engine and ruggedized hardware platforms deliver ICS protection specifically designed for OT environments, automation engineers, and plant operators. SCADAfuse, SCADAwall, and OTaccess were built to address top digital and physical security risks which can compromise the operations and profitability of OT environments. Use cases are:
- SCADAfuse has built-in policies which can be enforced to protect PLCs and other industrial assets from unauthorized access or activities, whether in the plant or out in remote field sites.
- SCADAwall has specialized communications and a built-in public-private key structure to assure that plant data can be safely and securely transferred for corporate business analytics, data mirroring, and support of synchronizing application data on the corporate side.
- OTaccess allows plant personnel to simplify, manage and control their own remote access for employees or trusted third parties from outside the organization directly to plant assets. IT resources are not needed, and this solution works even if a VPN is in use.
“Production operations and critical infrastructure have become economic and political targets. Asset owners are seeking Bayshore Networks solutions because our enforcement technology is faster and more protective than human response can provide,” said Kevin Senator, CEO of Bayshore Networks. “Our solutions help customers from becoming victims of fast-moving malware. We are excited to work as a preferred partner with Dimension Data, Middle East, LLC, recognized in the market for its cybersecurity expertise and its value-added services.”
