Owl Cyber Defense Solutions Integrates with GE Bentley Nevada System 1

New Combined System Greatly Increases Safety, Efficiency, and Security

Ridgefield, CT, Feb. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Owl Cyber Defense Solutions, LLC (“Owl”), the market leader in data diode network cybersecurity solutions, is proud to announce the company has recently completed its first successful integration with GE Bentley Nevada System 1.

This new integration includes the GE Bentley Nevada System 1 and Owl’s commercial data diode products (OPDS-100 and OPDS-1000), along with Owl’s RFTS file transfer software. It enables real-time condition monitoring and event diagnostics to be securely transferred across network boundaries while protecting the networks that contain the data.

“I can’t say enough about how well [the combined solution] performs,” said a high ranking official from the energy generation company that implemented the solution. “It just works and it’s simple.”

GE’s Bentley Nevada System 1 enables real-time optimization, monitoring, and diagnostics of equipment and selected processes, the platform enables the assets that drive processes to understand, diagnose, and control development conditions in real time.

Owl’s data diode-based cybersecurity solutions are one-way data transfer devices providing both hardened network security (often in place of physical air gap) and data availability to the users that need it, whether it is via file transfer, database replication, or any other data type. This technology is intended to separate and create boundaries between trusted and untrusted networks, straddling the demarcation line between them, while enabling data to pass in only one direction.

The combined solution has been installed in a major energy generation organization, with plans to roll out a fleet-wide implementation to aggregate performance and monitoring data from a number of plant sites to a centralized monitoring center. This arrangement will include over 100 servers across 30 plus sites. Users will benefit from the improvement of reliability and availability from System 1, combined with the proven security of Owl cybersecurity, creating an overall faster and easier collaboration with far lower risk to critical systems.

 “The GE Bentley Nevada System 1 intelligent software provides a broader connected view of sites operations,” says Scott Coleman, Owl’s Director of Marketing & Product Management. “With the increased safety from Owl DualDiode technology, the combination will allow their operational systems to be faster, more efficient, and more secure than ever.”
