TEL AVIV, Israel, March 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Frost & Sullivan today announced Waterfall Security Solutions as its 2012 North
American Entrepreneurial Company of the Year award in the field of network security for
industrial control systems. Industrial control systems are essential to the safe and
continuous operation of critical national infrastructures, such as power plants, water and
wastewater systems, transportation systems and oil and gas infrastructures. Waterfall’s
Unidirectional Security Gateways are deployed to protect control system networks and
computers at hundreds of sites world-wide, in all critical infrastructure sectors.
“We are very happy to be receiving this award,” said Lior Frenkel, CEO and Co-Founder
of Waterfall Security Solutions. “Waterfall employees all over the world have worked very
hard to create this technology and to solve real customer problems with the technology.
Recognition of that hard work by a major market research firm means a lot to us.”
“Frost & Sullivan firmly believes that Unidirectional Gateways ensure optimum security
for networks across user verticals in a more reliable and an effective way than do two-way
conventional firewalls,” adds Sonia Francisco, Research Analyst with Frost & Sullivan. “As
regulations and security standards continue to challenge the control system security
landscape, Waterfall’s unique solutions have the potential to be the industry’s next game
changing technology standard.”
