Ultra Electronics to launch EnergyGuard in Mideast
Abu Dhabi, July 7, 2013
London-based Ultra Electronics is set to launch its new generation Scada protection solution, EnergyGuard at a cyber security forum to take place in Abu Dhabi in October.
“EnergyGuard is designed to protect the devices at the critical edge of the network interfacing with the real world. It acts as a personal bodyguard, providing defence-in-depth protection from cyber (including network) and physical attack,” said Nigel Mackie, Ultra Electronics' cyber security director.
“It does this by integrating a number of discrete protection mechanisms to assure regulated access and communication with the more vulnerable and critical control and monitoring devices,” he said.
Developed by Ultra’s 3eTI business, the solution’s capabilities have been evaluated within the National Scada Test bed sponsored by the US Department of Homeland Security and operated by the US Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory, said a statement.
The Oil and Gas ICS Cyber Security Forum will take place between October 7 and 10 at Hilton Abu Dhabi, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
