JPS Enters Cybersecurity Market with Critical Infrastructure Solution
Wednesday, March 16, 2022 | Comments

Remote supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), a vital part of critical infrastructure – is a high value target for hackers who want to disrupt entire societies from a distance. Recent research indicates that industrial control system (ICS) vulnerabilities increased by 41% in the first half of 2021 alone.

JPS introduce its IronGate solution to address this ever-growing threat. The technology uses tamper-proof hardware and a sophisticated combination of unique software protocols that prevent hacking. IronGate has been aggressively Red Team tested by cybersecurity firms Cylance and FireEye-Mandiant, passing in both cases with excellent results, and has also been tested by U.S. government cybersecurity experts.

“IronGate was exceptionally hardened against attack and presented a minimal attack surface,” Cylance said in its report.

JPS’ new purpose-built security solution has also successfully completed a beta test at a water facility on a major U.S. military base. Results demonstrated that IronGate protected the facility’s SCADA network from hacking attacks that had been able to bypass existing security measures.

“It’s been a substantial investment but well worth it,” said JPS President Todd Dixon. “Every individual in our country depends on our infrastructure, which is currently far too vulnerable and open to malicious attacks by criminals and adversaries. IronGate will make our country safer.”
