— Ken Wante, vice president of engineering at Dellfer
SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dellfer, the leading provider of cybersecurity for IoT firmware, today announced that its ZeroDayGuard platform is the first cybersecurity solution to receive certification from TUV-SUD for IEC 61508 certification in any SIL for industrial control system security. Already certified for many other industries, this is a huge win for the security world. According to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, CISA, “The security of industrial control systems is one of the most important aspects of our collective effort to defend cyberspace.” (font)
“We are proud to be the first security company to receive IEC 61508 certification in any SIL,” said James Blaisdell, CEO of Dellfer. “With the industrial Internet of Things market at nearly 50 billion devices, the attack surface is massive and ripe for attack. The stakes could not be higher as these industrial control systems manage and access the world’s critical infrastructure network. This certification validates Dellfer’s unique approach to IoT Firmware Securitywhich makes these devices tamper-proof.”
“Dellfer ZeroDayGuard™ makes it possible to harden billions of industrial control systems by making them impervious to attack,” said Ken Wante, vice president of engineering at Dellfer. “Dellfer’s ZeroDayGuard IEC 61508 certification at any Safety Integrity Level (SIL) (1-4) demonstrates the effectiveness of its IoT security capabilities. Dellfer ZeroDayGuard reduces the risk of failure due to a cyber attack at the lowest level.”
Designed and developed for the unique requirements of IoT devices, ZeroDayGuard is optimized for industrial control systems as well as the highly regulated automotive and medical device industries and other business sectors. The ZeroDayGuard platform combines build tools, a device agent, and an incident monitoring service. It is enabled with one operation in the development of the IoT device code, and can then instantly detect root cause hacks and cyber attacks remotely in the cloud. Unlike other cybersecurity products, Dellfer’s solution approach does not use signatures or machine learning to thwart attacks, but rather rapid inside-out instrumentation to increase out-of-the-box accuracy and eliminate the false positive problem that plagues many cybersecurity solutions.
Dellfer is an IoT cybersecurity software company that enables industrial control system manufacturers to incorporate protection against unknown threats and thwart intrusions with unmatched visibility, speed and accuracy. It meets the need of the connected world for a new holistic approach to cybersecurity that can effectively and efficiently harden industrial IoT devices and prevent them from becoming successful attack vectors.
Dellfer provides a proven defense against zero-day attacks by continuously monitoring control flow integrity. It offers unmatched visibility to protect the connections found in everything from homeland security and defense systems to consumer and commercial devices. With Dellfer, these connected devices have built-in cybersecurity that prevents them from becoming vulnerabilities and threat vectors.
