SCADA systems are used to control physical processes like supply of water or electricity to a city. Today, SCADA and IT systems share same information security threats due to their increased integration. However, it is extremely complex to add security to SCADA because the life-span is in decades and there is no capacity to support/add security. Our major innovation is the development of a totally new and flexible platform to make it possible to add security to Serial Links in SCADA systems in many different application areas and to also create new products e.g.customer adapted integration modules.
Cryptango´s security solutions are based on the principles of a true security model aka CIA– Confidentiality, Integrity, Authentication, in fact Cryptango takes this model one step further and transforms it into AIC which is the correct way to handle the security of industrial control systems. Majority of the security solutions on the market follow the approach of – security by obscurity. Existing security solutions, available in the form of software, antivirus, firewall etc , completely ignore the fact that security attacks can easily be initiated from the physical communication layer like modems, thus making it needless to bypass the security they offer. Cryptango´s plug-n-play feature eliminates the need of any system modifications at the customer end, resulting in huge cost savings and a very convenient installation. Cryptango combines the strongest encryption standard with its specially engineered hardware to perform all the security work, isolating the security from the core function of the system which provides its customers– a great flexibility to focus on the main functions while staying completely secure from external intrusions.
