Protect Energy, Utility, And Transportation Grids With ViaSat Critical Infrastructure Security

CARLSBAD, Calif., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Critical infrastructure, such as energy grids or other utility networks, can now be managed and protected with a new security system from ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq: VSAT). The system is designed to avert or minimize security breaches and ensure continued operation of these networks. The public introduction of ViaSat Critical Infrastructure Security is taking place at the DistribuTECH Conference and Exhibition this week in San Diego.

Using a virtual view of their networks, energy, water, oil and gas, and transportation operations crews can manage security with a mouse click, based on real-time intelligence information. Sensors continually update the information, creating a hierarchical view that operators can use to identify issues, then drill-down to individual nodes to contain or fix them.

"In critical networks like these, the most important thing is to identify the problem quickly and accurately to prevent a major catastrophic event," said Jerry Goodwin, VP and general manager of Information Security Systems at ViaSat. "This system provides a distributed sensor network that enables real-time detection of problems in the network combined with mechanisms to quarantine bad behavior, whether it is caused by malfunctioning equipment, malware, or disgruntled insiders."

This is a new market for ViaSat, but the company has extensive experience in developing products and new technology for the highest levels of information assurance and cybersecurity for the U.S. Department of Defense. ViaSat Critical Infrastructure Security is already being deployed by an undisclosed U.S. energy provider.

See the new system at DistribuTech in San Diego (Booth #2146), January 29-31. ViaSat will also be discussing and sharing the results of a recent joint study with Zpryme that explores critical infrastructure security issues.
