German firewall specialist gateprotect reveals new Next Generation Firewall with specialized protection for SCADA controllers in the energy sector at CeBIT 2015

 

 

HAMBURG – gateprotect, a Rohde & Schwarz company, and Germany's leading provider of advanced network firewalls, announced unique new protections for SCADA networks used in the energy generation sector.

 

gateprotect Network Protector 5.2 is the only Next Generation Firewall in the world that supports special features for the specialized SCADA protocols used in the energy sector, such as IEC 60870-5-104. Network Protector 5.2 also includes a new Forensic Traffic Capture function and outbound file type control, providing system managers with a completely new level of protection for energy infrastructure control networks.

 

“gateprotect’s new Network Protector Next Generation Firewall allows energy infrastructure providers to implement complete control over both application type and individual command types passed by applications towards SCADA controllers,“ said John May, gateprotect CEO. “This unique functionality enormously increases the security of SCADA-based energy control systems, and also adheres to expected new Critical Infrastructure Protection regulations currently being drafted in major energy markets such as Germany.”

 

In addition to detailed whitelist control of application and command types, gateprotect's Network Protector 5.2 Next Generation Firewall now also offers Forensic Traffic Capture. Forensic Traffic Capture allows network administrators to capture specific network traffic like IEC 60870-5-104. These records support the detailed analysis of network traffic and thereby the manual and specific adaptation and improvement of the set of rules for the protection against attacks.

 

The new Network Protector 5.2 firewall also delivers new outbound protections, ensuring that sensitive documents or data cannot leak to the outside-world. Specific document types, such as PDFs containing secure internal information for example, can be blocked before they leave the internal firewall perimeter created by the gateprotect Next Generation solution.

 

“We see the new Network Protector firewall offering a strong last line of defense for existing control networks. Network Protector 5.2 is a best-of-breed Next Generation Firewall, designed and assembled in Germany with one of the world’s fastest single pass deep packet inspection engines,” said gateprotect CTO Christoph Becker. “This means there is no throughput or performance penalty in adding a last line of defense. It is really an ideal solution for SCADA energy control networks with application-specific traffic.”

Legacy SCADA energy control networks are under increasing attack, with hundreds of new attacks being detected every day. Tests at several energy companies have shown that generic firewalls leave the SCADA protocols used in energy supply largely unprotected. But with gateprotect Network Protector acting as a last line of defense, located inside the existing generic firewall perimeter, system managers can now intercept any remaining SCADA-specific threats before they can cause disruption or damage to critical infrastructure assets.

 

At CeBIT 2015, gateprotect will foreground critical infrastructure protection as a trade fair topic, together with the value added distributor sysob. 16 - 20th March, the security experts inform about security concepts to protect SCADA systems at the heise Security Plaza, hall 6, booth B16 and in lectures. A short explanatory movie is already showing the unique features and operation of the new Network Protector 5.2.

Collaborative Service Management Application Will Improve Flexibility And Performance While Reducing Operating Costs

 

LONDON – Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC), which serves over 174,000 people across north Buckinghamshire, has deployed Hornbill Service Manager, an innovative collaborative service management application, to support the council’s move to modernise ITSM operations and use new working practices to simplify and optimise IT service delivery. The 100% Cloud based service provides full service management capabilities that allow AVDC to significantly reduce infrastructure and maintenance costs to support its staff. Deploying in the Cloud, meant that the service was up and running and AVDC staff were benefitting from Service Manager’s capabilities within days.

 

“Our switch to Hornbill Service Manager gives us the ability to modernise our IT service Management operations and adopt a fresh approach that blends the most effective principles from traditional best-practice, with innovative collaborative technologies,” said Adam Haylock, IT Service Delivery Manager at Aylesbury Vale District Council. “With Hornbill Service Manager we can enhance the capabilities of our previous, on-premise Hornbill solution, while improving flexibility and reducing the costs and complexity of on-site infrastructure, management and software upgrades. Removing the need for servers, SQL licenses and backup costs has already made the project cost-neutral and we will see further savings in staff time as the project continues.”

 

In April 2012, AVDC began plans to move from multiple offices in the district to a single location on the outskirts of Aylesbury town centre. At the same time, it planned a complete refresh of its IT strategy and environment; moving to a more flexible, lower-cost cloud-based infrastructure allowing workers to access services from any location. The council was one of the first in the country to move to Amazon Web Services, and is dedicated to only procuring cloud-based IT services, such as Microsoft Office 365.

 

AVDC had used Hornbill’s Supportworks on-premise ITSM solution since 2008. When it decided to change to a cloud-based ITSM tool as part of its IT refresh, the tendering process identified Hornbill Service Manager as the best possible replacement, offering the perfect combination of innovative capabilities and industry best practice. Innovations like progressive capture help us secure the right data on customer issues during call creation, and its business process capabilities ensure correct procedures are followed The Service Desk team can now work collaboratively and secure expert help and assistance within the organisation to provide faster resolution to issues. The entire migration from Supportworks to Hornbill Service Manager was implemented by AVDC Project Manager Kirsten Shaw, in just 30 days. Hornbill provides their “Switch-On” service free of charge which includes configuring SSO, Importing user, customer and asset data, creating some business process and reports and dashboards, all delivered quickly and effortlessly. Being able to deliver on this demonstrates the ease of implementation as well as the simplicity of deployment of the solution.

 

“If there was a better product we would have considered it, but Hornbill Service Manager was already the complete package,” continued Adam Haylock. “It has already offered clear benefits in ease of use, functionality and cost, with more to come. We are hoping to make greater use of the collaborative features of the underlying Hornbill platform and open up use to end-user customers as well as the service team.”
