Ultra Electronics 3eTi

Industrial Cybersecurity

Designed for 100% reliability

Critical infrastructure is an attractive target for cyber-attacks that compromise system availability and integrity. The risks to essential control systems, both physical and cyber, are mounting through a rise in published vulnerabilities, wider connectivity, and adoption of open standards that can expose networks and critical edge devices to serious exploits.

Mitigating vulnerability risks

The use of PCs, Ethernet, and IP messaging within the industrial community has made an industrial control system (ICS) look more like a traditional IT network. As a result, there is increasing pressure within ICS organizations to allow IT departments to perform more cyber-related services in the ICS domain. Risk management is the cornerstone of cybersecurity, and a flawed approach can result in uncorrected and unacceptable risks. Security is just one aspect of a complete solution for system-level controls. Balancing risk drives security-system design.

3eTI solutions purpose-built for OT

Our solutions are designed to protect operational technology (OT) networks in new and legacy systems against cyber-events that impact safety and system availability. Our experience-based evaluations of end-to-end systems – from access control, surveillance to Layer 2/3 network security, malware protection, PLC security – inform our vulnerability assessments to establish security levels that assure secure operational efficiency and effectiveness.

  • Approved by automation vendors and standards groups
  • Exceeds NERC CIP, ISA IEC 62443 standards
  • Integration systems to enable globalization
  • Real-time information flow for innovative business models
  • Migration of legacy infrastructure networks speeds value-oriented deployments
  • Remote access enables support staffs to focus on production

Meeting industry standards

3eTI designs, builds and deploys solutions that combine technology, policies and procedures to align risk with turnkey solutions that maximize systems spending while eliminating downtime due to breaches. When evaluating any cybersecurity solution, owners and operators of energy control systems are obliged to include North America Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) compliance in the decision-making process. While many types of facilities are required to meet NERC standards, all principals in the industry should strive to comply for best security outcomes that assure potentially life-saving system stability.
