Icon Labs’ Floodgate Defender Embedded Software Solution Achieves McAfee Compatible Status

Icon Labs’ Floodgate Defender Security Software for Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) and McAfee ePO platform together provide a proven security solution for protecting and managing the Internet of Things (IoT), industrial control, Smart Grid and DoD Operational Assets

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Icon Labs (www.iconlabs.com), a leading provider of embedded networking and security technology, today announced that its Floodgate embedded software solution has achieved “McAfee Compatible” status.  The newly integrated solution integrates with the McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) platform, a key component of McAfee’s security management offerings, and Icon Labs’ Floodgate Software products for embedded devices. With this solution, joint customers can manage security policies and receive security events for embedded devices including, industrial control, IoT, Smart Grid and DoD operational assets.  

Icon Labs products provide embedded security for IoT and Machine to Machine (M2M) solutions such as aerospace, military and space probes, industrial and medical control devices, and even consumer electronics products. The Floodgate products provide a “defense in depth” solution to protect control units and endpoint devices from cyber threats, aid in compliance with regulatory mandates and guidelines, and gather and report command, event and device status information for audit requirements.

“By integrating Icon Labs Floodgate products with the McAfee ePO platform, we are able to bring enterprise level security capabilities to RTOS-based devices,” says Alan Grau, President of Icon Labs. “Our solutions extend the McAfee Security Connected architecture to devices that have historically lacked key security capabilities.  The result is a simplified operational experience at a significantly reduced TCO.”

The McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program is the foundation of a technology ecosystem designed to assemble the world's leading security innovations. It is the security industry’s premier technology-partnering program, delivering integrated solutions that maximize the value of existing customer investments. Working together, McAfee and its partners deliver solutions that are more comprehensive than those available from any single vendor.

“We’re pleased to see Icon Labs again complete McAfee compatibility testing for an additional product that will be important to our joint customers,” said Ed Barry, Vice President of Global Technology Alliances for McAfee, part of Intel Security. “Benefits of our joint solution include greater protection, and improved compliance costs for protecting and managing IoT, industrial control, Smart Grid and DoD Operational Assets.”

Icon Labs Software products are now available through McAfee’s invitation only Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) Sales Teaming Program (STP). Through this alliance, mutual customers will have access to Icon Labs’ Floodgate Security products – now tightly integrated and tested with the McAfee ePO platform.

Icon Labs Floodgate Defender Software Solutions are integrated into McAfee ePO platform, the first platform that lets enterprises and governments centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors, offering unprecedented cost savings and return on investment. With more than 45,000 customers and managing more than 60 million PCs and servers, this unique platform is helping McAfee SIA partners to extend their reach and create complementary functionality. The Floodgate innovation allows this capability to extend to RTOS-based endpoints, making them visible to the enterprise while concealing them from hackers.
