With this post we are initiating coverage of Bayshore Networks in our IoT Companies category
The company’s policy-based Information Technology/Operational Technology (IT/OT) Gateway, an alternative to next-generation firewalls in some settings, inspects and filters industrial data for customers in fields such as manufacturing, connected cars and smart cities.
For a brief introduction see the video at this link and embedded below:
The Industrial IoT refers to connected machines — specifically, industrial machines that are now connected to the Internet. Traditionally used for Operational Technology (OT), this industrial equipment is being increasingly managed by IT networks, introducing a new layer of complexity. Bayshore Networks was founded to safely and securely protect Industrial IoT networks, applications, machines and workers from the threats of the Internet.
The Bayshore IT/OT Gateway software provides operational and security policy for Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS). IACS encompasses several types of control systems used in industrial production, including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, distributed control systems (DCS) and other smaller control system configurations such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) often found in the industrial sectors and critical infrastructures. IACSs are typically used in manufacturing, the power grid, water, and oil & gas.
