Engineering has invested $18 million in Radiflow and is collaborating to
address cybersecurity risks and counter the onslaught of focused attacks
faced by critical information infrastructure (CII).
This partnership enables ST Engineering to access Radiflow’s detection
and prevention tools, of which its Electronics sector will integrate
with its Command, Control and Communications (C3) capabilities – in this
instant the rail supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)
system. The combining of these two technologies has resulted in the
development of the region’s first end-to-end cybersecurity solution for
the rail transport industry.
“With cybersecurity as one of our strategic growth areas, we have
intensified our acquisition of niche and breakthrough cyber technologies
that complement and strengthen our existing cybersecurity capabilities
for key customers,” said Mr Ravinder Singh, President, Electronics, ST
Engineering. “The partnership signifies our commitment in addressing a
pressing challenge faced by critical information infrastructure owners
and operators globally to respond promptly and confidently to the
growing influx of cyber-attacks.”
With the seamless, cross-platform integration of ST Engineering
Electronic’s Rail C3 Systems (SCADA) and Radiflow’s Intrusion Detection
System, global rail operators can now look forward to a consolidated
overview and analysis of cyber events as well as a strengthened ability
to differentiate between genuine Industrial Control Systems (ICS)
failure and cyber-attacks. This will result in enhanced collaborative
effort between the SCADA and cybersecurity teams to address any
incidents, leading to a quicker response time.
are excited that ST Engineering has extended its partnership with us and
has decided to make a strategic investment in Radiflow,” said Ilan Barda,
CEO of Radiflow. "The collaboration between ST Engineering and Radiflow
will enable us to introduce our solutions to new customers and
territories, while this new investment will facilitate us to expand our
market traction and accelerate the next stage of our growth."
Radiflow, a pioneer and provider of cybersecurity solutions for ICS and
SCADA networks, has reported strong demand for its industrial
cybersecurity solutions across all critical infrastructure sectors and
has more than doubled the sales of its threat detection tools and
services over the past year. Together with ST Engineering, it will
collectively leverage their deep expertise to strengthen the resilience
of CII that supports essential services globally.
