HANNOVER, Germany, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Deutsche Telekom announced at Cebit earlier this week that it has entered a strategic partnership with Radiflow to collaborate in the field of securing industrial networks. Radiflow was chosen by T-Systems, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, after a thorough evaluation of ICS/SCADA security vendors.
Deutsche Telekom's move to expand into securing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) stemmed from the increasing importance of securing industrial systems and critical infrastructures, as they become more and more interconnected.
Telekom Security, a new business unit within Deutsche Telekom, now offers Industrial Network Protect Pro (INPP), a distributed firewall for industrial networks based on Radiflow's portfolio. With INPP, companies can subdivide their networks into protected zones, and subsequently monitor and control data flows between these zones. Radiflow's secure gateways are especially optimized for remote sites, in which they serve both as distributed attack detection sensors for its central Industrial IDS (iSID), and as access protection devices.
"We're honored to partner with Telekom Security and glad that we were able to convince Deutsche Telekom of the value of our innovative, best-in-class technology in protecting industrial networks," said Ilan Barda, CEO of Radiflow.
Dirk Backofen, Head of Telekom Security, added, "Radiflow enables Telekom Security's customers to expand their use of digitized infrastructure in their industrial applications while maintaining their operational resilience. With Radiflow's expertise, the strategic partnership enables Telekom Security to offer a mature, field-proven solution."
Radiflow is a leading provider of cyber security for critical infrastructure networks. The Radiflow solution provides operators visibility and control of their OT network; including both non-intrusive Industrial IDS to monitor real-time networks and security gateways to secure access to devices in critical zones.
Radiflow was founded in 2010 as part of the RAD group, a family of ICT vendors with over $1Bn in annual revenues. Since 2012 Radiflow has sold more than 10,000 systems used by major utilities world-wide and validated by leading research labs in the US.
