LARAMIE, WY. -- A Wyoming business focused on improving the performance of midstream natural gas facilities is teaming with a veteran cybersecurity expert to present a new product that prevents O&G client’s operational data from being hacked.
LogiLube, LLC is introducing its Platinum Level Data SecurityTM solution with Waterfall Security Solutions’ stronger-than-firewalls Unidirectional Security Gateways during the 20th Annual ARC Industry Forum in Orlando, FLA., Feb. 8-11. More than 700 leaders of global industrial companies, including executives from multinational energy companies, are expected to attend the event.
The combination of the two companies’ products delivers actionable information from real-time data analytics to field engineers monitoring midstream natural gas facilities at often remote locations, while at the same time protecting that data from being compromised.
“LogiLube’s Platinum Level Data Security solution using Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways represents the intersection of disruptive innovation and cybersecurity,” says Lior Frenkel, CEO and co-founder of Waterfall Security Solutions. "Together, we are supporting asset managers'' needs for real-time condition monitoring and diagnostics without any compromise on airtight data security.”
Waterfall Security has gained renown in the industrial control space, with thousands of deployments worldwide. Recently, a report from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recommended the use of unidirectional communications technologies such as the Waterfall Unidirectional Security Gateway as the best defense of industrial control systems.
“By adopting Waterfall’s solutions, LogiLube can deliver to the midstream natural gas market actionable analytics that are both real-time and secure,” says Gillette. “This represents a game-changing technology for the midstream oil-and-natural-gas industry. We can now provide real-time information without risking data integrity or compromising IT security. The intelligent machine health data analytics we provide can be integrated directly into our client’s IOC.”
LogiLube’s Platinum Level Data Security product works with the company’s trademarked SmartOilTM solution, a compressor package-mounted, real-time oil condition monitoring system. SmartOilTM is designed to increase equipment uptime and overall reliability by providing actionable analytics on machine health indicators such as oil temperature, pressure, viscosity and dielectric strength, and is optimized for fleets of 1,000-5,000 HP natural gas-fired engines powering reciprocating compressors.
The result is less compressor downtime and increased operating revenue for midstream operators.
LogiLube’s data security solution offers multiple layers of data encryption and firewalls as well as a powerfully effective approach to safe network integration. Together with Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways at the LogiLube data center, a unidirectional system is created that prevents attack propagation while preventing the communication path from being exploited by even the most sophisticated cyber-espionage and cyber-sabotage attacks.
With margins falling in the oil-and-gas industry over the past 18 months and operators searching for efficiency gains, Gillette said he expects that LogiLube’s SmartOilTM condition monitoring platform, protected by Waterfall’s Unidirectional Security Gateways, is a solution that will find serious interest at the ARC event.
LogiLube, LLC is a technology development company focused on predictive data analytic solutions for the natural gas compression industry. A suite of patented products are in various phases of design and implementation; the initial product is SmartOilTM, which is a compressor package-mounted, real-time oil condition monitoring system designed to increase valuable equipment uptime and overall reliability. The target market is fleets of 1,000 - 5,000 HP natural gas-fired engines powering reciprocating compressors. For more information, visit http:// www.logilube.com.
