Cyber Security suite for Power Utilities

Valiant Communications provides a comprehensive range of “Cyber Security” solutions that includes a “Cyber Smart-Rack” and “beyond the firewall” network security devices that include “Network Traffic Sniffers”, “Decoy Servers” and “Network-Kill Switches” that detect firewall breaches, network intrusions and cyber-attacks in “real-time” and assist its users to develop an advanced comprehensive defence strategy to generate an alarm and to isolate the network and / or automatically switchover to redundant network / redundant firewall in the event of a security breach.

VCL-CSR: Cyber-Smart Rack with SMS Alerts:

  • Provides multiple alert and alarm options including fan management and fan failure alerts, smoke alarm, high temperature alarm, open door alarm (up to 6 binary I/Os) NTP/SNTP synchronization
  • Intelligent Power Distribution Unit
  • Centralized Network Management System (NMS) for monitoring multiple racks from single central location.

VCL-5000 : 1+1 Redundant Firewalls:

  • 1+1 redundant configuration firewalls, with automatic fail-over switching.

VCL-SafeComm-E: 1+1 Ethernet Failover Protection / AB Fallback Switch:

  • Provides 1+1 Automatic Ethernet Failover / AB Fallback Protection between an "active” and "standby" terminal equipment; or between “main” and “standby” networks /firewalls and routers.
  • Fail-Safe. The equipment never becomes a point of failure, even in a power down condition.
  • Provides equipment or network redundancy for applications which require 99.99% up-time.

VCL-5001: Network Traffic Sniffer:

  • This device detects network intrusions that could lead to Denial of Service (DoS) or Cyber-Attack.
  • Flags unusual traffic flows for both inbound and outbound traffic by providing an advance warning of the Data traffic anomalies.

VCL-2143: Decoy Network Element:

  • This device can be programmed by the user to emulate (i.e. to appear to an attacker) as a Relay, IEC-61850 Protection Relay, IEC 60870-5-104 Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), MODBUS RTU, Data Storage Device, SCADA Server.
  • Alerts of a network intrusion / cyber-attack in real-time. Alerts of a network intrusion or cyber-attack in real-time with an audio and visual alarm.
  • Assists in identifying and isolating the source of problem /points of network vulnerability by providing intrusion or attack trace route and forensic analysis in real-time.

VCL-2702: Network Kill Switch:

  • Provides manual and automatic isolation from network, in an event of a cyber-attack.
  • Can be used with VCL-5001 Network Traffic Sniffer; or with VCL-2143, Decoy element to isolate the network in the event of the detection of a network intrusion / breach of the cyber-security perimeter / security zone.
