Bayshore is expanding its Modular Industrial Controls Cyber Security Platform by extending the family of NetWall (USG) Unidirectional Security Gateway to now include Bilateral variants.

NetWall BSG (Bilateral Security Gateway) incorporates all the features of the NetWall USG (Unidirectional Security Gateway) version, but also adds the ability to receive data replies from selected destinations on the untrusted network. A TCP connection is initiated from the trusted network to a destination, such as Microsoft SQL Server, on the untrusted network using the NetWall Bilateral Security Gateway solution. The destination may respond with data back to the initiator, however, no connection can be initiated from the untrusted network back to the trusted network.

Both NetWall USG and NetWall BSG can securely transfer control systems’ data, logfiles, database records and other pertinent data to IT data centers, security operation centers (SOC’s), and cloud-based data storage.

The NetWall family of products offers OPC UA support, meaning that SCADA systems that use OPC UA as one of their core transport options, such as Inductive Automation’s ignition platform, can now be replicated unilaterally between server nodes, with full fidelity of the entire schema and zero risk of controls being inserted from the destination network. In addition, all NetWall products create a secure network segment when installed, shielding and isolating critical assets and sensitive networks from cyberattack and misuse. At the same time, NetWall USG & BSG support real-time file and data replication outside the electronic perimeter to corporate business systems, such as ERP, MES, PLM, and others.

NetWall USG & BSG come in 50MB, 100MB and 1GB capacity with MRSP’s of $15K, $20K and $30K respectively for either model.
