The Osorno Automation Team began the development of a plant security system for intrusion detection and prevention in 2008 when occasional unexplainable action of a PLC system was observed. Osorno changed the initially installed PLC hardware based on a proprietary operating system, to the ControLogic™ hardware based on Open Source. This led to the development of the security software that evolved into SecureWall™ version 1.
At a governmental facility, SecureWall™ captured and prevented the intrusion of on average of 6,000 intrusion attempts in a 24 hour period in 2008. As of 2014, this number has increased at the same facility to an average of 9,000 intrusion attempts per 24 hours.
SecureWall™ is the ultimate solution for shielding your network from Internet intruders. Security locks on doors will protect a facility, but are useless when the electronic doors for intrusion are wide open, and the potential for damage is much higher.
SecureWall™ was developed by the security professionals of the Osorno Automation Team to eliminate security threats looming on the Internet. SecureWall™ keeps a log of attempted attacks, with the IP address and location of each attacker.
Securewall™ version 2 was released in May 2015. Clients who have bought SecureWall™ version 1 after January 1, 2013, will receive a substantial discount on an upgrade to the new hardware/software combination of SecureWall™ version 2.
