Military leaders are recognizing this expanding cyber threat landscape. The risks for “cyber physical systems” in every complex weapon, its host platforms, as well as much of the supply chain that supports defense operations globally are on the rise. This includes mission critical dependencies on commercial fuel and transportation infrastructure and logistical operations.
MSi has been at the forefront of this issue since 2010. Our innovative risk assessment methods and hardware/software cyber defense solution were initially developed to help protect critical defense assets, as well as their important payloads, from potential cyber threats.
Our patent pending “Secure Sentinel” product goes beyond typical IT-based “defense in depth” measures. It closes gaps and protects physical assets and control systems against cyber physical threats, supply chain interdictions and trusted insider attacks.
