Elecys Announces SCADA Cyber Security Product
Olathe, Kansas (May 19, 2011)- Elecsys Corporation (NASDAQ: ESYS), a developer and manufacturer of machine to machine (M2M) data acquisition, telemetry, analysis systems, and custom electronic assemblies for critical industries, today announced the release of the zONeGUARD, the most recent addition to the Company's supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) telemetry product line.
As cyber security requirements expand for the industrial data systems used within the nation's critical infrastructure, the Elecsys zONeGUARD provides a security solution for industrial communication networks that ensures both data encryption and authentication. The patent-pending zONeGUARD system consists of a single host device combined with multiple remote devices. The zONeGUARD host device is simple to interface with both current and legacy data acquisition systems via a wide area or local area network and may be used with existing virtual private networks (VPNs). The zONeGUARD remote devices allow users to cost-effectively extend cutting-edge cyber security capabilities to their current field equipment without the need to replace extensive populations of existing equipment. In addition, zONeGUARD's unique intrusion detection system (IDS) provides operators with a powerful and concise method of detecting and reporting attempted system intrusions.
Scott Tampke, Chief Sales Officer, commented, "Addressing data security vulnerabilities within the industrial monitoring and control systems used for critical energy infrastructure is a growing concern. zONeGUARD is an ideal solution to provide our customers with enhanced data and communications security while allowing the
continued use of existing monitoring and control equipment with established data acquisition systems."
Elecsys will be displaying the zONeGUARD system at the ENTELEC 2011 conference and exhibition being held during the week of May 23rd in Houston, Texas.
