Norman to partner Kongsberg Maritime in protection of critical oil, gas & maritime industrial global environments in the IT field

Norman ASA, a global security provider, announce an OEM agreement to supply the Norman SCADA Protection (NSP) system to Kongsberg Maritime of Norway who will use the NSP security solution in its information technology maritime systems.

Kongsberg Maritime is a global supplier of maritime systems for dynamic positioning and navigation, marine automation, cargo management and level sensors, maritime training simulators and position reference systems.

With recent Stuxnet malware attacks on industrial software and systems, manufacturers, utilities and industries are seeking sophisticated security solutions to protect SCADA systems used for monitoring and control of industrial infrastructure.

To meet this challenge against advanced persistent threats like Stuxnet, Norman has developed the Norman SCADA Protection system to protect against cyber attacks from malware such as trojans, worms and viruses that can cause millions of dollars of damage and disruption to production and services delivery.

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) describes computerized industrial control systems (ICS) that monitor and control industrial and infrastructure processes. SCADA systems can be found in manufacturing environments, public transportation systems, power generation and distribution, nuclear plants, pipelines, in oil and gas industries and in maritime environments.

According to government studies, SCADA systems have historically been engineered for performance, reliability, flexibility and safety, while security has been weak to non-existent.

"Kongsberg Maritime needs the most advanced SCADA security system available to protect its customers against cyber attacks and serious malware threats, such as Stuxnet," said Stein Arne Riis, Product Manager, Product Development, Kongsberg Maritime. "Norman worked with us closely to deliver the most powerful system available in order to protect our systems against the most advanced and persistent threats."
