Unidirectional Gateways transmit business-critical information out of operations networks without introducing any risk to the availability, integrity or safety of control system assets inside those networks. The technology often raises questions, though, when first encountered by security practitioners accustomed to firewalls — questions of data integrity, remote management, and integration into corporate security systems. However, since Unidirectional Gateways have been deployed successfully at hundreds of sites, and in many industries, there are good answers to all these questions. In the end, Unidirectional Gateways both increase the security of operations networks, and sharply reduce perimeter management costs when compared with conventional firewalls.
This presentation briefly reviews firewall issues and costs, and introduces Unidirectional Gateways. We explore deployment scenarios in refineries and pipelines, and discuss common deployment issues and solutions for them.
Join us to see how network isolation via Unidirectional Gateways permits the flow of critical business information out of control networks, while providing cost savings, as well as strong protections against threats ranging from errors and omissions to insiders, common malware and even targeted attacks.
