Getting serious in addressing the issues of cybersecurity risks and countering the onslaught of focused attacks faced by critical information infrastructure (CII) has resulted in ST Engineering investing in Radiflow, a leading provider of industrial cybersecurity solutions for critical infrastructure based in Israel.
This partnership enables ST Engineering to access Radiflow’s detection and prevention tools, of which its Electronics sector will integrate with its Command, Control and Communications (C3) capabilities – in this instant the rail supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. The combining of these two technologies has resulted in the development of the region’s first end-to-end cybersecurity solution for the rail transport industry.
Mr Ravinder Singh, President, Electronics, ST Engineering stated that with cybersecurity as one of their strategic growth areas, they have intensified their acquisition of niche and breakthrough cyber technologies that complement and strengthen their existing cybersecurity capabilities for key customers. The partnership signifies their commitment in addressing a pressing challenge faced by critical information infrastructure owners and operators globally to respond promptly and confidently to the growing influx of cyber-attacks.
With the seamless, cross-platform integration of ST Engineering Electronic’s Rail C3 Systems (SCADA) and Radiflow’s Intrusion Detection System, global rail operators can now look forward to a consolidated overview and analysis of cyber events as well as a strengthened ability to differentiate between genuine Industrial Control Systems (ICS) failure and cyber-attacks. This will result in enhanced collaborative effort between the SCADA and cybersecurity teams to address any incidents, leading to a quicker response time.
Ilan Barda, CEO of Radiflow added that they are excited that ST Engineering has extended its partnership with them and has decided to make a strategic investment in Radiflow. The collaboration between ST Engineering and Radiflow will enable them to introduce their solutions to new customers and territories, while this new investment will facilitate them to expand their market traction and accelerate the next stage of their growth.
Radiflow, a pioneer and provider of cybersecurity solutions for ICS and SCADA networks, has reported strong demand for its industrial cybersecurity solutions across all critical infrastructure sectors and has more than doubled the sales of its threat detection tools and services over the past year. Together with ST Engineering, it will collectively leverage their deep expertise to strengthen the resilience of CII that supports essential services globally.
The comprehensive cybersecurity solution will be on showcase at the LTA-UITP Singapore International Transport Congress and Exhibition (SITCE) from July 9-11, Marina Bay Sands.
