Chris Daly, Active Cyber posts interview with 3eTI’s Ben Garber. Chris was able to visit our lab for a demonstration in Rockville, MD and meet with Ben Garber – a cybersecurity expert for the company. There he was able to learn more about the need to manage and defend the OT enclaves and to turn back the rising tide of attacks on critical and not-so-critical infrastructure. He was intrigued to discover that 3eTI’s CyberFence technology offered provides essential enclave protection for these mixed IT/OT environments.

ICS, SCADA, OT, PIT and even IoT are all acronyms that define a class of systems which manage the flows of data between sensors, actuators and control systems. Over the past decade, the interconnection of these systems with Information Technology (IT) systems and the Internet has been occurring at an ever-increasing pace, creating significant concern among security professionals as vulnerabilities and attacks begin to emerge that leverage the unprotected gateways and dependencies between the two domains. These OT or Operational Technology [for lack of a better acronym] systems are under increased scrutiny by attackers as well, as new exploitation kits are being created and disseminated on a regular basis.  Robust security technology is needed to manage and defend the OT enclaves and to turn back the rising tide of attacks on critical and not-so-critical infrastructure. Therefore, I was intrigued when I discovered the CyberFence technology offered by Ultra Electronics 3eTI at a recent conference. CyberFence provides essential enclave protection for these mixed IT/OT environments. I was able to visit their lab for a demonstration in Rockville, MD and meet with Ben Garber – a cybersecurity expert for the company.
