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."
