Mission Secure, Inc. (MSi), a provider of cyber protection solutions for control systems operating critical assets in energy, defense and transportation, successfully completed a month-long cyber evaluation of the MSi Platform conducted by the Arizona Cyber Warfare Range (www.azcwr.org). The independent evaluation validated the security robustness of the MSi Platform and ability to monitor and protect control system components from cyber attacks.
AZ CWR is one of the most highly regarded, independent, non-profit cyber ranges in the world. Over the course of a month, five teams of 33 people conducted a variety of attacks scenarios to try and gain access into the MSi Platform and disrupt the ability to detect and protect control systems equipment from cyber attacks.
“We endorse the MSi Platform as a solution any organization with control systems should strongly consider deploying to provide enhanced cyber security and protection of their “We take cyber security of our own control systems,” said Brett Scott, Director of AZ CWR. “We appreciate companies that take cyber security of their products seriously and open them up to this level of intense testing.”
The independent evaluation covered multi party penetration testing of the various components in the MSi platform, as well as a range of cyber attacks against control system devices the MSi platform was protecting, including PLCs, digital relays, and the underlying processes they controlled.
The MSi Platform is a patent-pending solution by Mission Secure designed to monitor, detect, inform, collect, correct and protect control systems and the processes they operate from cyber attacks.
