Unisys Stealth™ can protect industrial enterprises’ critical infrastructure in a flexible, non-disruptive manner.

Hacks or attacks on chemical processing controls could cause system failures, equipment damage, or environmental hazards. Stealth is innovative software-based security designed to protect the command and control center and conceal automated systems from hackers, viruses, or other cyber threats. If attackers cannot see the command center or any of its critical components, there is little attack surface to target or compromise. Proprietary processing techniques and other intellectual property can be safeguarded from theft or snooping.

Stealth for Chemical Processing

  2. 2. Executive Overview2 Zero Incidents: Your Goal. Our Mission. To remain competitive, deliver the best products to the market securely, and meet increased regulatory requirements, the chemical processing industry must modernize. Unfortunately, these goals are often at odds with one another. Innovation and competitive- ness rely on new technology that integrates business processes (real-time analytics, enterprise resource planning, supply chain automation) with production. But the introduction of the latest supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, industrial control systems (ICS), and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and their related human-machine interface (HMI) and machine-to-machine (M2M) software puts chemical companies at significant risk for cyber-attacks. According to a recent report in Reuters (March 2014), at least 48 chemical and defense plants were attacked with a virus called ‘Nitro.’ Sources report the virus originated in China, and the targets were vulnerable to data theft, such as formulas and pro- cessing techniques. Such viruses can also disrupt operations and bring down entire network systems.1 1 Finkle, Jim. ‘Nitro’ Attacks: China-Based Hacker Targeted Chemical Firms. Reuters, March 26, 2014. nitro-attacks-china-hacker-chemical-firms-symantec_n_1067978.html How can chemical companies protect their facilities against advanced persistent threats (APT) and other sophisticated cyber-attacks while also reducing costs and improving agility? With Unisys Stealth™, you can: Go invisible. Make servers, devices, and other endpoints dark and undetectable to hackers and unauthorized users inside and outside your enterprise. Isolate segments of your data center based on user identity. Define and control access to mission-critical systems and information based on need-to-know access. Secure data-in-motion. Protect data with point-to-point encryption. Consolidate. Reduce reliance on physical IT infrastructure. Scale and adapt. Upgrade legacy systems, easily meet emerging needs and compliance requirements with agile, software-based security. Keep Critical Infrastructure Secure
  3. 3. Executive Overview3 Stop Cyber Assaults Before They Happen Unisys Stealth takes a radically different approach to addressing the most critical security concerns. Stealth is designed to make SCADA/ICS and PLC endpoints at chemical processing plants on the command and control network invisible to unauthor- ized users and to secure data-in-motion across any network. This is how Stealth can help chemical companies Get to Zero Incidents. By creating highly-trusted communities of interest (COI), Stealth is designed to allow only authorized users to access automated devices, applications, and systems critical to the chemical processing facility. In addition to strengthening mission-critical protection, chemical companies can reduce infrastructure costs by safely modernizing their industrial controls and software with one unified security solution. And as business requirements or regulatory mandates change, Stealth can deliver the agility enterprises need without requiring costly upgrades or extensive reconfiguration. Why Stealth Now? Unisys Stealth is the innovative, mission-critical security that chemical companies need to help secure their operations: No operational disruption. Stealth works with existing firewall, intrusion detection, and other security systems with easy installation so you can upgrade your systems without compromising security. Reduces risk. Make automated chemical processing controls such as ICS/SCADA endpoints and HMI systems invisible. Isolate critical systems from the rest of the enterprise. Tighten access control based on user identity. Make mobile and wireless applications more secure. Protect data-in-motion over the industrial control network. Facilitates compliance. Stealth can help achieve compliance with the Executive Order on Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, and other regulatory requirements and recommendations. Reduces costs. Protect the chemical processing enterprise system, including sensitive financial, production processes, formulas, and network data with one cost-effective solution. Improves agility. Stealth allows for quick, easy changes to accommodate rapidly evolving business needs. You Can’t Hack What You Can’t See STEALTH COMMUNITIES OF INTEREST NETWORK COMMAND & CONTROL CENTER Go Invisible. You control who can access—or even see— SCADA/ICS, command and control systems, and other endpoints. TRUSTED USER (COI) TRUSTED USER (COI) UNAUTHORIZED USER x
