Bayshore Networks Announces General Availability of Bayshore SCADA Firewall (v2.0), the Strongest Layer of Defense Against Advanced Threats and Malware Targeted at Critical Infrastructure, SCADA Industrial Control Systems

Bayshore SCADA Firewall v2.0 Features Enhanced Protocol Support, User Interface and Reporting

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 13, 2012) - Bayshore Networks, the leading provider of internal application firewall technology engineered to detect and block advanced malware and threats, today announced general availability of Bayshore SCADA Firewall (v2.0), delivering unmatched defense against targeted attacks on SCADA infrastructure. Featuring enhanced protocol support, user interface and reporting, the second generation of Bayshore SCADA Firewall v2.0 provides one of the most powerful lines of defense at a time when attacks on critical infrastructure and industrial control systems are increasing in sophistication, frequency and scale.

Bayshore SCADA Firewall v2.0 features:

  • Layer 7 application protection for Industrial Control Systems
  • Expanded support for important industrial protocols including Modbus and DNP3
  • Multi-protocol application inspection with the most powerful policy-specification language in the industry
  • Advanced heuristic baselining using the most advanced application-behavior profiler available
  • Robust event logging and SIEM integration features
  • Strong policy language for more granular control over industrial data inputs
  • Enhanced Protocol Support, User Interface and Reporting
  • Dynamic User Interface for easier configuration

"Critical infrastructure requires sophisticated security technology with industrial control protocol support, and we believe the next generation of Bayshore SCADA Firewall is the strongest defense against advanced threat actors who continue the onslaught of more sophisticated attack schemes aimed at SCADA Industrial Control Systems, Defense Industrial Base and critical infrastructure organizations," said Bayshore Chief Executive Officer Francis Cianfrocca.

Bayshore's flagship SingleKey™ Layer 7 application firewall leverages patent-pending heuristic baselining, behavior-based analytics and highly-granular SingleKey™ Policy Language (SPL) to detect anomalous behavior in real time. Detected anomalies are often indicative of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attacks in progress. When operating as an inline firewall, SingleKey™ can provide mandatory (blocking) or advisory (non-blocking) enforcement of SPL rules, as well as alerting, logging and reporting.

In February, Bayshore announced a strategic technology integration with BAE Systems, delivering a powerful combination of Bayshore's next generation Layer 7 firewall technology on top of BAE's ultra-secure STOP OS operating system to deliver unmatched defense protection for BAE customers.

"With its emphasis on application baselining and analytics, Bayshore has gained a solid following in the so-called serious security market -- including the SCADA space," said Wendy Nather, Research Director, Security, at 451 Research. "While we'd like to see more organizations deploy firewalls within the internal network as well as on the dwindling perimeter, more widespread adoption will likely continue among organizations facing the biggest and most active threats -- at least in the near future."
