FAIRFAX, Va., -- With recent Stuxnet malware attacks on industrial software and systems, manufacturers, utilities and industries are seeking sophisticated security solutions to protect SCADA systems used for monitoring and control of industrial infrastructure.

To meet the challenge against advanced persistent threats like Stuxnet, Norman ASA, a global security leader, www.norman.com, has developed the Norman SCADA Protection (NSP) system to protect against cyber attacks from malware such as trojans, worms and viruses that can cause millions of dollars of damage and disruption to production and services delivery.

SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) describes computerized industrial control systems (ICS) that monitor and control industrial and infrastructure processes. SCADA systems can be found in manufacturing environments, public transportation systems, power generation and distribution, nuclear plants, pipelines, in oil and gas industries and in maritime environments.

According to government studies, SCADA networks have been designed to maximize functionality - and are engineered for performance, reliability, flexibility and safety, while security has been weak to non-existent.

"SCADA environments are without a doubt one of the biggest challenges in security today. Many industries are poorly protected against cyber threats to their infrastructure," said Audun Lodemel, vice president, Marketing. "Norman's NSP solution is the industry's most comprehensive solution focused on the advanced persistent threats targeting SCADA networks."

NSP is a part of the Norman Network Protection (NNP) product family, which is a high performance anti-malware protection system, designed to provide security to corporate and industrial networks. The NNP family of appliances delivers high-performance security at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions.

Easy to install and easy to use, NNP family solutions are engineered to protect manufacturers, SMB, financial institutions, health care and government agencies seeking the strongest malware protection.

Norman SCADA Protection solutions will be installed at the network perimeter and prevents ICS systems from being infected by malicious code transferred across the network. The ICS computers will also be protected against infection by unsecured portable storage devices, commonly used by service personnel, who might intentionally or unintentionally expose the computers to attack code like the Stuxnet. This adds a critical line of defense against one of the most common yet effective cyber attack strategies.
