September 18, 2015 - Ultra Electronics 3eTI updates SCADAWatch security appliance to provide cyber-attack detection to Serial-based protocols such as CANopen, Profibus, and DeviceNet.

Serial-based protocols such as CANopen, Profibus, and DeviceNet are used for critical platforms from vehicle control to power generation and have been the subject of recent high-profile attacks. Serial-based automation and controls systems currently are unmonitored, and assumed uncompromised, making them ideal targets for a cyber-attack. SCADAWatch detects an unauthorized or malicious action, generating an alert without degrading critical system operations.

Using SCADAWatch, a serially controlled system will be able to distinguish between a sophisticated cyber-attack and equipment failure. This capability provides early warning to an operator, allowing an immediate and accurate response to unauthorized activity that can critically impact mission performance.

 

"Extending visibility into the serial domain enables operators to quickly and decisively take action in response to attempted malicious commands," said Benga Erinle, President, 3eTI. "SCADAWatch provides the last, most fundamental line of defense to strengthen machine-to-machine communications within major platform applications in a form factor that can be deployed rapidly and safely."
