Help AG, the cybersecurity arm of e& enterprise (formerly known as Etisalat Digital), has partnered with Waterfall Security Solutions, which provides industrial cybersecurity solutions. With this partnership, the company aims to assist industrial clients in the UAE to securely connect their information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) environments for safe performance.

Today, many industrial organisations – such as those in the manufacturing, utilities, facilities, and rail industries – are looking to integrate IT into their production facilities for smarter operations. This brings the importance of industrial cybersecurity to the forefront, as a successful attack on an OT system can have catastrophic consequences that range from halting operations to endangering physical safety.

Help AG’s industrial clients will benefit from Waterfall’s unidirectional security gateways and related products to tackle the security challenges involved in IT-OT convergence.

Additionally, the company’s suite of offerings facilitates integrations with other technologies and services offered by Help AG partners, enabling the delivery of end-to-end solutions rather than point products, a statement said.

Commenting on the partnership, Stephan Berner, chief executive officer at Help AG, said: “One of our key focus areas is helping our clients in the industrial sector to safely integrate their IT and OT systems. For this reason, we are very pleased to partner with Waterfall Security Solutions, a leader in the field of ICS/SCADA cybersecurity. Waterfall’s unidirectional gateway technology meets the security needs of modern industrial organisations, and our UAE clients now have full access to their patented solutions.”

Lior Frenkel, CEO and co-founder at Waterfall Security Solutions, said: “Our partnership with Help AG is driven by a shared commitment to secure vital industrial networks in the UAE. Help AG’s deep technical expertise, as well as strong relationships with critical infrastructure utilities, industrial enterprises and other technology providers, will enable Waterfall to contribute more effectively to integrated and comprehensive industrial security programmes.”

Earlier this month, the company announced that it has been named as the managed security services provider (MSSP) partner of Microsoft in the GCC.
