The Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) promises revolutionary improvements in the efficiency of industrial operations, manufacturing platforms, transportation systems, utilities and others. However, for these benefits to be realized, they require the massive deployment of connected devices that gather and communicate data, thereby increasing cybersecurity attack surfaces dramatically, and opening paths for attackers to enter industrial networks. Just by connecting to the cloud, without the addition of the devices and sensors related to the IIOT, increases the vulnerabilities open to cyberattacks on industrial sites from the cloud.
Another challenge to overcome prior to widespread adoption of IIOT is the multitude of different protocols and applications used by industrial systems in contrast to the typical “cloud –friendly” IT systems.
To overcome both challenges, Waterfall offers the Unidirectional CloudConnect, an innovative solution based on Waterfall’s market-leading Unidirectional Gateway technology.
The CloudConnect solution utilizes unidirectional security technology to enable safe and reliable IT/OT integration. Providing hardware-enforced protection, the technology allows data to flow out of industrial networks, without any possibility of attacks getting inside, and replicating data collected from the industrial devices and systems to the outside.
Waterfall’s CloudConnect uses Unidirectional Gateway technology to gather data from industrial sources such as historians, Industrial Control Systems, OPC servers, and industrial devices. CloudConnect converts that data into a unified cloud-friendly format, such as XML files, relational databases, publish/subscribe protocols, or SOAP web services. CloudConnect transmits the unified data securely out of the site and into the industrial cloud. CloudConnect’s foundational Unidirectional Gateway technologies ensure seamless connectivity with both industrial and cloud systems, and provide absolute protection from network threats that are fundamental to Internet-exposed networks and systems.

Unidirectional Security Gateway DIN Rail
Unidirectional Security Gateway DIN Rail
In the face of increased and complex cyberattacks, more and more industrial and critical infrastructure sites are turning to unidirectional gateway technology to prevent remote cyberattacks from entering their control systems. However, many physical environments require a smaller form factor than the rack-mounted Unidirectional Security Gateway. To meet this need, we developed the compact Unidirectional Security Gateway DIN Rail.The DIN Rail version of Waterfall’s market-leading Unidirectional Security Gateway enables customers throughout all sectors to deploy unidirectional gateway technologies in any of their network locations that require a compact form factor. Without compromise, the Unidirectional Gateway DIN Rail maintains the highest level of cyber security available for protecting industrial control systems (ICS) and critical infrastructure facilities from remote online attacks.Same benefits, smaller packageThe Waterfall DIN Rail offers the same high throughput, connectivity and functionality as our full-body, rack-mounted version. The availability of a smaller form factor enables electrical, oil and gas, manufacturing and other industries to easily deploy the gold standard of cyber protection for space-constrained sites. In addition, industrial enterprises connecting to cloud platforms or employing many small sites will benefit from using Waterfall’s Unidirectional CloudConnect® in this compact form factor. With no loss of performance or ease of use, industrial cybersecurity has never been so comfortable and secure.Robust hardware with a twistThe Waterfall DIN Rail is based on combined TX and RX Modules. The software runs from two computers, dedicated or shared, one on each side of the gateway. All of Waterfall’s multitude of software connectors, in addition to its advanced features and functionalities, are supported.Highlighted features:- Same ultimate level of cybersecurity as our market-leading- Unidirectional Security Gateway- Compact, vertical DIN Rail mounted- Same throughput and software connectivity as the Unidirectional- Security Gateway- Designed for specific environmental requirements (e.g. substations)
Unidirectional Security Gateway
Unidirectional Security Gateway
Waterfall Unidirectional Security Gateways replace firewalls in industrial network environments, providing absolute protection to control systems and operations networks from attacks originating on external networks. Unidirectional Gateway solutions come in pairs: the TX appliance contains a laser, and the RX appliance contains an optical receiver. The Gateway pair can transmit information out of an operations network, but is incapable of propagating any virus, DOS attack, human error or any information at all back into the protected network.Waterfall agent software gathers data in real time from operations servers inside the protected network. The software transmits that data to the external network, and populates replica servers with the data.Waterfall provides out of the box replication capabilities for dozens of industrial applications, including process historians, process databases, control system servers, OPC servers, and low-level devices.Replication solutions are also available for file servers, mail servers, print servers, SIEM servers and other components essential to the integration of modern operations networks with business networks.The server-replication process is transparent to external users, and has no effect on the original operations servers. External users access and use the replica servers in the same way they accessed and used the original operations servers, without changing working procedures.Waterfall’s customers report substantial savings over conventional firewalls. Gateways reduce firewall configuration, auditing, training, and real-time monitoring / logging costs. In addition, customers in regulated industries report dramatic reductions in regulatory documentation costs associated with firewalls and the use of routable protocols.
