Bayshore Networks

Bayshore Networks

Bayshore Networks is the cybersecurity leader for the industrial Internet of Things.

bayshore-logo-white-tagline-blue-bgThe Company’s award-winning, patented Bayshore IT/OT Gateway™ software unlocks the power of the Industrial Internet by enabling industrial applications and data. It provides Fortune 1000s with unprecedented visibility into their Operational Technologies, safely and securely protecting industrial applications, networks, machines and workers.

The Bayshore Gateway software is distinguished by granular inspection and filtering of network flows, policy building and enforcement, and its ability to detect, parse and segment industrial protocols. Leveraging these capabilities, Bayshore delivers ROI in areas such as M2M cybersecurity and safety, operational continuity, and process efficiency and compliance.

The software deploys from the cloud, as a virtual machine, or on-prem as a hardware appliance. Bayshore has strategic alliances with leading technology companies including Cisco Systems, BAE Systems, and VMware.

The Bayshore IT/OT Gateway™ unlocks the power of the Industrial Internet by connecting OT data to industrial applications.

The Bayshore IT/OT Gateway provides IT with visibility into OT processes, applications and data. It prevents disruptions and enhances operational efficiency and continuity. The Gateway’s patented policy engine provides deep, granular filtration of OT data and application content and automatic transformation and interpretation of OT data into advanced analytics. The Gateway delivers value in the following areas:

  1. It ensures employee safety in production zones. Bayshore safety policy (tailored by each customer) is automatically generated and easily enforced.
  2. With Bayshore’s extensive industrial domain knowledge, it provides IT with complete visibility into operations and access to analytics.
  3. It supports all popular industrial protocols and easily adapts to proprietary protocols.

Market Advantages

When it comes to OT security and safety, the Bayshore IT/OT Gateway has proven to provide significant advantages over IT firewalls:

  1. It is policy-based rather than configuration based.  The predicate-based policy language is based on XML, so it can quickly adapt to proprietary protocols and new protocols.
  2. It enforces policy based on content awareness rather than meta data.  It provides granular inspection and filtration of content all the way down to machine transaction and data value levels, much deeper than any firewall.
  3. Off the shelf, it includes years of domain intelligence on the leading industrial protocols and applications — Modbus TCP, DNP3, and EtherNet/IP, to name just a few.

IT/OT Gateway vs. IT Firewalls

Next-generation firewalls, which are rules-based, signature-based and appID-based, won’t scale to protect your OT environments. Because the Bayshore platform is based on a high-performance, intuitive, and extremely granular policy development and enforcement engine, it scales to secure the world’s largest OT networks.

Compared to firewalls, Bayshore is able to scale with OT networks by providing a policy-based platform as opposed to configuration-based; and by providing content-aware controls rather than network-based controls.

By deploying at the IT/OT convergence point, the Gateway captures all network flows, providing a complete security picture. As shown in the diagram below, it is able to provide IT departments with unprecedented visibility into their OT environments. At the same time, it provides OT departments with access to IT applications such as advanced analytics, which were previously not accessible.

The Gateway provides extremely granular content inspection at Layers 3, 4 and 7, which is necessary for OT content filtering, network segmentation, and machine isolation. It can filter OT traffic to identify the actual machine operations commands and transaction values. With its inherent understanding of industrial protocols, it can identify machines by the type of application traffic they are sending and receiving.

The Bayshore Pallaton policy language, which is included with every IT/OT Gateway is state-of-the-art. It is XML-based for easy extensibility, which enables it to quickly adapt to any proprietary protocol in an IT or OT environment. Bayshore offers an expanding library of policies for security, operations, safety and compliance. Because it is predicate-based, Bayshore policy is rapidly customizable to the specific context of each OT network. Additionally, Bayshore can import and enforce third-party policies.IT-OT-Gateway2

 

Cyber Threat Assessment Request

Cyber Threat Assessment Request

Gauge Your Current Security, Productivity and Performance

Request Cyber Threat Assessment

Validate the current state of your Network Security effectiveness, better understand your employee productivity/application usage, and monitor your true Network Performance requirements with expert guidance.

After registering for this program, a PTS consultant will monitor key indicators within your network. You will receive a Cyber Threat Assessment Report after several days of gathering information, divided into three primary sections:

  • Security and Threat Prevention – Learn more about which application vulnerabilities are attacking your network, which malware/botnets were detected and even pinpoint “at risk” devices within your network.
  • User Productivity – Discover which peer to peer, social media, instant messaging and other application subcategories are being utilized in your network.
  • Network Utilization and Performance – Find out more about your throughput, session and bandwidth requirements during peak hours.

Register for your Free Cyber Threat Assessment by filling out the form.
You will also receive an excerpt from a cyber threat assessment sample report.

In the field of networking, the area of network security consists of the provisions and policies adopted by the network administrator to prevent and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of the computer network and network-accessible resources.

Network security starts with authenticating the user, commonly with a username and a password. Since this requires just one thing besides the user name (I.e. the password which is something you ‘know’), this is sometimes termed one factor authentication. With two factor authentication something you ‘have’ is also used (E.g. a security token or ‘dongle’, an ATM card, or your mobile phone), or with three factor authentication something you ‘are’ is also used (E.g. a fingerprint or retinal scan).

Once authenticated, a firewall enforces access policies such as what services are allowed to be accessed by the network users. Though effective to prevent unauthorized access, this component may fail to check potentially harmful content such as computer worms or Trojans being transmitted over the network. Anti-virus software or an intrusion prevention system (IPS) helps detect and inhibit the action of such malware. An anomaly-based intrusion detection system may also monitor the network and traffic for unexpected (I.e. suspicious) content or behavior and other anomalies to protect resources. Individual events occurring on the network may be logged for audit purposes and for later high level analysis.

Unified Threat Management (UTM) is a comprehensive solution that has recently emerged in the network security industry as a comprehensive approach to network security management.

The advantages of unified security lies in the fact that rather than administering multiple systems that individually handle anti-virus, content filtering, intrusion prevention and spam filtering functions, organizations now have the flexibility to deploy a single UTM appliance that takes over all their functionality into a single rack mountable network appliance.

In theory, it is the evolution of the traditional firewall into an all-inclusive security product that has the ability to perform multiple security functions in one single appliance. The following diagram shows primary (blue) and secondary (red) threat protection provided by UTM devices:
