Heading West: Nation-E expands to the United States
Based out of Herzeliya, Israel, Nation-E is officially expanding its footprint on a global scale. We’ve headed west to the United States to open two new offices, allowing us to offer cybersecurity solutions for U.S.-based critical infrastructure.
Located in Silicon Valley, home to hundreds of start-ups and global tech companies, our first office in California will act as the company’s U.S. headquarters. Head over to New York City, and you’ll find our second office on Madison avenue, right in the heart of the financial district. Differing from Silicon Valley, this space will act as a showroom for Nation-E’s technology with a strong focus on building management systems for new clients.
What We Do
Our innovative solutions for defending industrial infrastructure and the smart grid environments incorporates three main components:
- Smart Agents: Hardware devices attached to critical assets with serial interfaces in order to monitor, protect and secure assets.
- Energy Firewall: Collects and orchestrates real-time information acquired by the Smart Agents.
- Cerebrum: Analyzes the information collected by the Energy Firewall and provides command and control center as well as detailed dashboards, reports and alerts.
Focusing on the last-mile of distributed energy assets, our platforms embed cybersecurity, risk management, big-data analytics, and full command and control capability into previously unprotected infrastructure. We excel in shielding from a variety of threats and vulnerabilities such as smart-grid hacking and insider threats.
Why We Do It
In the 2015 Cost of Data Breach Study by IBM and the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data breach increased from $3.52 million in 2014 to $3.79 million in 2015. Nation-E CEO Idan Udi Edry, acknowledges that protecting the hidden layers within a company’s operational technology (OT) is the solution to reducing this number and avoiding future cyber-attacks.
“This is especially true with industrial companies that are aiming to transition to the next generation of industrial IT - Industry 4.0,” said Edry. “What happens is that the physical assets within a company’s operational technology layers become extremely vulnerable when transitioning to the IT domain, making it very simple for hackers to access and control critical infrastructure. This is why we are seeing high numbers of attacks on physical assets, the Internet of Things and especially the Industrial Internet of Things.”
If you find yourself in or near NYC, please stop by! We are encouraging industry experts and companies to schedule a private, real-time demonstration of Nation-E’s cybersecurity solutions. This will be a unique opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes look into a cyber-attack.
