“Our global collaboration with Yokogawa is driven by a shared commitment to secure critical infrastructures around the world,” said Lior Frenkel, CEO and Co-Founder at Waterfall. “Waterfall and Yokogawa have been aligned globally for many years. Together, we bring to our mutual customers strong unidirectional protections to meet modern cybersecurity challenges. We look forward to continuing our close cooperation in the years ahead.”
Waterfall’s Unidirectional Gateways and related products are proven to integrate easily and reliably with Yokogawa products, both in Yokogawa laboratories and in the field. Existing customers already benefit from Waterfall installations that support Yokogawa platforms, including Exaopc, Exaquantum, and CI Server.
With the new agreement in place, Waterfall and Yokogawa will be working on joint commercial engagements and bundles to their mutual end-customers. Additionally, they will work hand in hand on on-going technical validations in the Yokogawa laboratory environment. The two will also share in marketing activities and events showcasing the two technologies.
In an increasingly digitized world, strong cyber defenses speed the development and adoption of technological innovations. Strong unidirectional security also enables and simplifies Yokogawa’s customers’ compliance with industrial cybersecurity best practices world-wide, including IEC 62443, France’s ANSSI, NERC CIP, the IIoT Security Framework, CENELEC TS 50701, and many more. The new Waterfall Security and Yokogawa collaboration agreement makes all these benefits available to Yokogawa customers world-wide.
