Mitsubishi Electric Automation, ICONICS, and Dispel Announce Integrated Secure Remote Access Solution for Industrial Automation Systems

Nov 16, 2021

New York, New York, UNITED STATES NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ICONICS, Mitsubishi Electric Automation (MEAU), and Dispel unveiled an integrated, Moving Target Defense-based remote access solution for industrial automation systems at this year's ICONICS Connect 2021 conference. This announcement means manufacturing, water & wastewater, oil & gas, building management, and maritime clients can now provide their teams with enhanced secure remote access to their operational technology without reaching beyond their partnerships with ICONICS and MEAU. Since November 2019, the reference standard for cyber resilience and fault tolerance in the United States and Japan—through the Cross-Sector Forum Mapping—has been NIST 800-160 Volume 2. This document calls for the use of  Moving Target Defense  at several levels within any cyber system. Absent automation, properly meeting this standard in a remote access context requires considerable human capital (15 minutes of administrator time per connection), patience on the part of the connecting users (7 to 12 minutes of login steps), and specialized uplink equipment. Dispel's core engineering specialty is in automating the launch and maintenance of Moving Target Defense infrastructure. "Mitsubishi Electric Automation has had their eye on Moving Target Defense since NIST 800-160 Vol 2 was still a draft circular," said Ian Schmertzler, President of Dispel. "The 2 years and 14 days of due diligence, testing, and micronization that preceded this event are a testament to the care with which Mitsubishi Electric Automation and ICONICS approach addressing mission-critical questions for their customers." The solution presented on September 30 at  ICONICS Connect 2021  offers users connection times of under 30 seconds, administrative overhead of less than 1 minute per connection, and an  embedded installation  on Mitsubishi Electric MELIPC series hardware that is light enough to allow the system to continue serving its initial purpose in parallel. "The top priority for all three teams was that this relationship deliver a next-generation capability to the market," said Ben Burke, Dispel's Chief Operating Officer. "It needed to exceed the  cybersecurity requirements  customers would likely need to meet in the coming decade while also besting the operational efficiencies of the highest performing unsecure remote access alternatives." The presentation comes at a critical moment in the industrial automation sector. With the Colonial Pipeline incident having motivated enforcement of cybersecurity controls in regulated industries, and skilled labor shortages simultaneously driving demand for remote access, industrial automation customers have been searching among suppliers for off-the-shelf options that could rapidly bring their firms into alignment with standards without impeding the productivity gains industrial automation offers. About Dispel Dispel is the world's leading provider of Moving Target Defense networks; designed, built, and maintained in the United States. Founded in 2015, the cybersecurity company has offices in Austin, New York, Virginia, and Tokyo. The company's mission is to connect people to their industrial control systems, wherever they are. They do so through a high-speed, secure remote access product that is fast, easy to implement, and simple to use. Learn more at . Press Contact
