Secure Networking for
Water and Wastewater Systems

Easily connect and micro-segment Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and SCADA networks across geographically distributed areas – at lower cost than any alternatives

We deliver a simpler approach to securing and isolating your critical infrastructure based on trusted machine identities. Eliminate the need for internal firewalls and VPNs for secure access and segmentation with a single solution that is fast to deploy and radically secure.

Segmentation Alternatives for Water and Wastewater 
Environments are Complex and Costly

line

As water utilities gradually deploy more data-enabled components, connecting modern and legacy systems (including booster stations, lift stations, valve vaults, wells, and more) through automation and better data, is crucial to maximizing operational efficiency.

The lack of good solutions forces health organizations 
to deal with issues such as:

Critical up-time and bandwidth issues with legacy communications such as expensive microwave radio

Increased security risk due to lack of segmentation and native encryption

Costly travel to remote sites for troubleshooting and updates

Traditional IT solutions are not the answer. Technologies such as firewalls, VPNs, ACLs, and VLANs were not designed for water/wastewater environments. They require significant time and expertise to deploy and manage, yet still remain vulnerable to breach due to insufficient security and segmentation.

We have a better solution that solves these challenges.

Simple, Secure, and Segmented Water &
Wastewater Networks

line

We deliver peer-to-peer encrypted networks that make it simple to connect and micro-segment water systems across a highly distributed environment.

With a simple plug-and-play deployment model and multiple connectivity options (wired, Wi-Fi, cellular, and radio), you can now eliminate the many complex and time-consuming steps required to deploy and manage firewalls and VPNs. Reduce connectivity costs, increase security, improve network up-time, and future proof your water networks for additional IoT elements such as IP cameras.

Strong Security

Easily isolate and segment ICS/SCADA off the corporate network

Upgrade Legacy Communications

Easily deploy inexpensive and secure cellular connectivity using a public APN

Segmentation

Secure VPN-Less Access

Reduce costly travel with network access from anywhere, anytime

Simple and Fast Deployment

Most customers will deploy hardware such as the HIPswitch 250 at remote sites in order to cloak and segment water systems. The HIPswitch 250 features dual cellular modems, so they can now failover to and between different cellular providers if the wired WAN connection fails, improving availability and up-time.

The HIPrelay is the world’s first identity-based router that connects systems and buildings across separate networks, and can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud.The Conductor is the orchestration engine that manages policy for all distributed HIP Services (HIPswitches, HIPservers, and HIPclients), delivering simple control of the network.

The Conductor Delivers Simple and 
Centralized Network Control 


Eliminate the complex and manual configurations associated with traditional IT solutions through simple point-and-click policy orchestration. Create, deploy, and disconnect overlay networks in seconds, with little to no change to existing network infrastructure.

Policy Orchestration That’s Point-and-Click Simple

Easily create isolated network segments and configure policy using the radio buttons. This simple process replaces the multiple steps of security and network configurations (using network addresses, ports, certificates, ACLs, and VLANs, and more) typically required by IT staff.

Visualizing Policy

Verify Overlay Network Configuration and Compliance Quickly and Easily

The Visual Trust Map allows you to immediately validate communication policy between protected machines, as well as their HIP Services. With greater control of your network, showing segmentation for regulatory compliance reporting and security audits becomes quick and easy.
