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.

Hardware
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.

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.
FLIP
FLIP
Waterfall FLIP® securely integrates Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT) control system networks. Modern enterprises transmit control system information to business networks continuously, and need to send information from business networks into operations networks occasionally – for example when sending control recipes into batch manufacturing systems or when sending anti-virus signatures and other security updates.
Secure Bypass
Secure Bypass
The Waterfall Secure Bypass can be deployed in parallel with unidirectional solutions to enable full interactive remote access in emergencies. The secure bypass equipment can never be activated remotely by any network attack, however sophisticated the attack.

IIC x IoT ONE IIoT Spotlight Podcast EP041: Cybersecurity, reliability, and safety in an industrial environment - An Interview with Jesus Molina of Waterfall Security
Thursday, Oct 18, 2018

*This episode of the Industrial IoT Spotlight Podcast is sponsored by the Industrial Internet Consortium

We discuss the IIC's approach to security in an industrial context. 

What are the differences between consumer-facing and industrial applications of IoT when it comes to security? How did tinkering with a hotel lighting system evolve into securing industrial IoT systems? How should we view security and secure industrial IoT systems?

Jesus Molina discusses his views of security, common misconceptions around cybersecurity, and his approach to securing IoT systems.

Jesus Molina is the Director Of Business Development at Waterfall Security Solutions Ltd. He is also the co-chair of the IIC Security Working Group.

Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC)
Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC)
The Industrial Internet Consortium was founded in March 2014 to bring together the organizations and technologies necessary to accelerate the growth of the Industrial Internet by identifying, assembling and promoting best practices. Membership includes small and large technology innovators, vertical market leaders, researchers, universities and government organizations.Industrial Internet Consortium Working Groups coordinate and establish the priorities and enabling technologies of the Industrial Internet in order to accelerate market adoption and drive down the barriers to entry. There are currently 19 Working Groups and teams, broken into 7 broad areas: • Business Strategy and Solution Lifecycle• Legal• Marketing• Membership• Security• Technology• TestbedsThese groups are comprised of Industrial Internet Consortium member company representatives. Member companies can assign an unlimited number of individuals to the Working Groups, which follows the one vote, one company rule.Testbeds are a major focus and activity of the Industrial Internet Consortium and its members. The Testbed Working Group accelerates the creation of testbeds for the Industrial Internet and serves as the advisory body for testbed proposal activities for our members. It is the centralized group which collects testbed ideas from our member companies and provides the members with systematic yet flexible guidance for new testbed proposals. Our testbeds are where the innovation and opportunities of the Industrial Internet – new technologies, new applications, new products, new services, new processes – can be initiated, thought through, and rigorously tested to ascertain their usefulness and viability before coming to market. Learn more about testbeds in general and specific testbeds below.
