Accurate data from IIoT devices is relied on to regulate water obtained from critical infrastructures such as urban water services, wastewater plants, pumping stations, dams, sewers and desalination plants. These connected devices present a serious security threat by exposing networks to cyber and cyber-physical attacks (CPAs), including cyber penetrations designed to disrupt the physical processes of a water distribution systems (WDSs).
Most critical control systems today can be accessed remotely in order to improve operational efficiencies and alert response time, making them attractive targets to hackers and cyber terrorists. If a malicious attempt to control any of the systems were to be successful, the economic and environmental damage could be enormous, including stealing private consumer data, tampering with equipment, stopping the water supply, spilling sewage, and even creating a serious public health hazard by degrading the quality of water.
IXDen secures industrial sensors and IoT devices in the water from malicious cyber and cyber-physical attacks. By ensuring the integrity of the data coming to and from each IoT device, IXDen protects the entire ecosystem, helping water utilities to focus on stable and uninterrupted distribution of clean water.
Protect sensor data at its source to assure OT system security and OT system data you can trust.
The integrity of sensors and actuators are critical to the safe and profitable operations of industrial processes.
