Radiflow brings Deutsche Telekom to IIoT Security
23 March, 2017
Deutsche Telekom's newly established security unit, will deploy Radiflow solutions to provide Intrusion Detection System for SCADA industrial and critical infrastructure networks
Deutsche Telekom announced earlier this week that it has entered a strategic partnership with Radiflow to collaborate in the field of securing industrial networks. Radiflow was chosen by T-Systems, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, after a thorough evaluation of ICS/SCADA security vendors.
Deutsche Telekom’s move into securing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) stemmed from the increasing importance of securing critical and industrial infrastructures, as they become highly interconnected. For this mission, Deutsche Telekom established its Telekom Security unit, to offer Industrial Network Protect Pro (INPP), a distributed firewall for industrial networks based on Radiflow’s portfolio.
INPP enables companies to subdivide their networks into protected zones, to monitor and control data flows between these zones. Radiflow’s secure gateways are especially optimized for remote sites, where they serve as distributed attack detection sensors for its central Industrial IDS (iSID), and as access protection devices.
“We are glad that we were able to convince Deutsche Telekom of the value of our technology,” said Ilan Barda, CEO of Radiflow. The company’s solution provides Intrusion Detection System (IDS) for SCADA networks and a full visibility and control of the entire network. Radiflow was founded in 2010 as part of the RAD group, a family of ICT vendors with over $1Bn in annual revenues. Since 2012 Radiflow has sold more than 10,000 systems used by major utilities world-wide and validated by leading research labs in the US.
