Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: ESLT) ("Elbit Systems") announced today that Samsung SDS Co. Ltd. (Samsung SDS"), a subsidiary of the Samsung group and a global leading IT services company, selected Cyberbit Ltd. ("Cyberbit"), the company protecting some of the world's most sensitive organizations against cyber threats, to protect customers against attacks on industrial control systems.
Industrial control networks are prime targets for cyberattacks and use legacy technologies that challenge conventional security systems. Samsung SDS and Cyberbit will collaborate to deploy Cyberbit's SCADAShield, a non-intrusive deep-packet inspection system, optimized for ICS/SCADA networks, in the Korean market. SCADAShield will protect customers' critical infrastructure against cyberattacks, minimize continuity risks and improve network managers' visibility across their ICS networks.
"Critical infrastructure facilities are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks because of their legacy hardware, unique communication protocols and the lack of security awareness among operational network managers." said Adi Dar, Cyberbit's General Manager. "We will collaborate with Samsung to bridge this gap and help organizations in the Asia Pacific region to protect themselves from critical cyberattacks of potentially massive scale." added Dar.
Sung Won Han, VP Cyber Security Team, Samsung SDS said, "We look forward to collaborating with Cyberbit. Our customers will be able to enhance resilience and competitiveness in the core infrastructure related to manufacturing and control."
