The industrial cyber security company Waterfall Security announced an expansion into the Asia Pacific (APAC) region with the opening of a Waterfall office in Singapore. Waterfall stated that the Singapore expansion reflects the company growing customer base in the region, with the office strategically located to support the Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam and other countries in the region. The Singapore office will support local sales, marketing, and partner programs, and will support the growing need for local and native customer and technical support.
Founded at 2008, Waterfall has developed a unidirectional cyber solution, consists of both hardware and software, which offers bulletproof protection for operational networks (OT) in industrial facilities against remote cyber attacks. The hardware component is installed between the operational network (OT) and the external network (IT). A single one direction optical fiber connects the two, thus creates a Unidirectional Security Gateway allowing data to move only outward but not into the industrial network itself.
This hardware creates a physical barrier that isolates the network. When a user uses the analytics systems, he does so in a replicated cloud. Waterfall employs approximately 100 employees in Israel and the US. According to the company it has a few thousands of customers, mainly from the Energy and Electricity, Gas and Oil, Water and Chemicals sectors.
