GE Digital, Bayshore Networks Partner on Critical Infrastructure, Industrial Security
Monday, February 08, 2021 | Comments

Bayshore Networks and GE Digital announced an expansion to their partnership to integrate their solutions to address the growing need to secure industrial and critical infrastructure networks.

GE Digital's OpShield technology will be integrated into Bayshore Networks' advanced solutions, providing sophisticated industrial cybersecurity and active prevention/protection for industrial equipment, including programmable logic controllers (PLCs), human machine interfaces (HMIs), and engineering workstations.

"We're pleased to announce another way we will support organizations who need to protect operational technology (OT) environments, industrial processes and plant operations," said Steve Pavlosky, director, digital product management at GE Digital. "Being at the heart of an operation's data visualization, control and reporting, it is critically important to ensure companies are taking steps to protect this key element to their operations. The combination of Bayshore's In-depth Policy Engine with GE Digital's OpShield management console and Advanced Protocol technology addresses the fact that while companies may have threat analytics or detection solutions as part of a cybersecurity triad, they must have advanced prevention capabilities."

GE Digital began working with Bayshore in 2019 to bring cybersecurity support to GE Proficy installations. With this extended partnership, Bayshore and GE Digital look forward to providing customers in all industries with software that includes Bayshore Networks' advanced cybersecurity technology with GE Digital's OpShield capabilities.

The partnership combines GE Digital's OpShield security technology with Bayshore's Deep Content Inspection and Advanced Policy Learning and Enforcement, enabling Bayshore to create an integrated product line, to be called OpShield NextGeneration. Bayshore will be the exclusive provider of this combined technology to customers worldwide through GE Digital, Bayshore, and other sales channels. OpShield NextGeneration can protect most HMI and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems from unauthorized and potentially high-risk or dangerous network activity such as unscheduled configuration changes, unscheduled maintenance events, indicators of reconnaissance and surveillance, Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, network spoofing and piggybacking.

"Bayshore is tremendously excited to see the relationship with GE Digital expand to combine our joint technologies with the goal of launching OpShield NextGeneration as the premier detection/active prevention solution for the entire industrial marketplace as we jointly work to secure the world's industrial and critical infrastructure networks," said Bayshore CEO Kevin Senator. "Together, we will support existing GE Digital customers, as well as new customers with technology to protect their OT endpoints and networks from ever-changing and increasing cyber threats as well as advancing this combined technology to a broad range of control products from a variety of vendors.”
