Safe information management for critical systems - Use Case #05
Energy plants such as wind farms and utilities rely on data from outside management systems. These systems include virus protection and software updates, but also other crucial information, to work at maximum potential.
The information transfer to and from the system has to be secured to make sure that the integrity of the Industrial Control System (ICS) is preserved.
By using ZoneGuard in the ICS/SCADA connection case the information flow is controlled by a policy defined by the system security responsible or the IT security department. Threats towards the critical ICS/SCADA network is effectively mitigated in the cross-domain point by ZoneGuard’s validation and filtering of all information.
