Cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure, like power grids, hospitals, water supply, commercial facilities and public transportation, put nations and people at risk every day. Businesses and governments devote an ever-increasing number of resources to mitigate those risks. BedRock Systems delivers critical infrastructure security with minimal changes to policy and performance. The BedRock HyperVisor™ creates a secure layer between hardware and software/OS to minimize the attack surface and keep people safe.
Critical Infrastructure Use Cases
Safe & Secure Software-Defined Anything (SDx)
Software-defined is the future of infrastructure, bringing scalability and innovation to critical markets like utility and energy. Our bulletproof virtualization and separation software layer allows for innovation while under attack, with policy for communication and resources at the hypervisor level.
Secure Application Platform
Businesses across the energy and utilities sector are now producing apps to help customers manage consumption more efficiently. Unfortunately, web apps are a notorious target for cyber-attackers looking to exploit vulnerabilities and steal data. BedRock provides a secure platform for these applications, ensuring the privacy of user data.
Secure Cloud Infrastructure
The Commercial Facilities Sector includes a diverse range of sites that draw large crowds of people for shopping, business, entertainment, or lodging. These are based on the principles of public access, but are privately owned and operated. In order to reduce cost and better scale convenience functions, more and more automation and cloud based systems enter this market. At the same time, this also requires the applications to run securely and separately, while depending on communication.
Virtualization in the cloud and on the edge can reduce operational expenses and make information sharing easier. It also puts applications at risk of exposure if not executed with care. The BedRock Hypervisor enables organizations to run critical applications and securely store data on the cloud, even if cyber-attacks are attempted.
Secure Healthcare Cloud Infrastructure
More healthcare organizations are migrating their data to the cloud. While virtualization can reduce operational expenses and make information sharing easier, it also puts protected health information at risk of exposure if not executed with care. The BedRock Hypervisor enables healthcare organizations to run critical applications and securely store data on the cloud, even if cyber-attacks are attempted.
Secure Mobile Devices
As mobile devices become more commonly used in healthcare services, threats to protected health information increases. Security-conscious mobile devices can be built and maintained when based on the BedRock Hypervisor. We ensure that security, availability, and integrity are guaranteed, down to the resource partitioning of hardware devices involved in securing the different operating modes of the device.
Secure Edge-to-Cloud Virtualization
The transportation industry relies on edge computing to log data collection where connection to the cloud isn’t always possible. Trains, for example, have event recorders to log data that can be used to investigate accidents or explore operational efficiency. This information can then be sent to the cloud, when possible, to be stored or analyzed. BedRock Systems provides virtualization from edge to cloud, ensuring data is secure across infrastructure.
Secure PTC Backend Infrastructure
Positive Train Control (PTC) monitors and controls train movements to improve railway traffic, but it also creates a critical infrastructure cybersecurity risk. The BedRock Hypervisor provides an extra layer of protection for the PTC wireless communications network beyond existing encryption keys. This further minimizes the opportunity for malicious attack and theft of sensitive data.
