“SNCF RESEAU had to implement a system to protect its self against cyber threats. Because we handle traditional and industrial equipment, we were looking for tools to cover cybersecurity tests for a large range of products and Beyond Security’s beSTORM provided us with the solution” said an Expert in the Industrial Cyber Protection organization. “With beSTORM, we are now able to run very high level of cyber security tests to make sure we are protected in the best way possible and our infrastructure is running more efficiently without the threat of any attacks or a loss of critical data”
“By using beSTORM to test the security of individual railway control components for unknown vulnerabilities, the SNCF is leading the way in securing French critical infrastructure from attack.” Said Brian Pearce, Chief Operating Officer of Beyond Security. “Transportation, power, communication and other infrastructure systems can no longer freely add new components or accept vendor updates to their networked systems without first certifying their security. Using enterprise grade, dynamic security testing on control system components prior to their installation, entire systems can eventually be certified as hardened against attack” he added.
