Icon Labs Joins McAfee Security Innovation Alliance
Integration of Icon Labs Floodgate Embedded Firewall and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator software is expected to extend security management to embedded devices
West Des Moines, IA – (October 24, 2012) – Icon Labs (www.iconlabs.com) a leading provider of embedded networking and security software, today announced that it has joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance™ (SIA) partner program. As a member of the McAfee SIA program, Icon Labs will integrate its advanced Floodgate firewall technology with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) platform to provide comprehensive security management and policy enforcement for embedded devices.
Floodgate Firewall will extend the capabilities of McAfee ePO software to legacy embedded devices, giving network administrators visibility and management of devices not typically visible to security management systems, including devices such as medical instruments, industrial controls, consumer electronics, and more. Floodgate can be implemented as a bump-in-the-wire solution for legacy devices such as unmanaged Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) or Real-time Operating System (RTOS) based systems, or integrated into new embedded product designs. Floodgate will provide system administrators the ability to view device status and manage, distribute, and enforce packet filtering policies from their central McAfee ePO management console.
“Icon Labs is excited to be part of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance and to provide security management and enforcement for new and legacy embedded devices with McAfee ePO,” said Alan Grau, President of Icon Labs. “Floodgate and McAfee ePO software is expected to provide security management and policy enforcement to a huge number of critical systems that are not protected or managed today.”
“We are pleased to add Icon Labs to the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance,” said Ed Barry, vice president of the Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee. “Our customers face growing challenges to secure and manage legacy critical infrastructure devices as well as new RTOS based systems. With the Floodgate Embedded Firewall, our customers can have a powerful new capability to protect and manage a diverse range of critical devices that were previously not visible to users of the McAfee ePO platform.”
Icon Labs’ Floodgate Embedded Firewall is an award winning security solution for embedded systems. Floodgate can be provided as a portable software library for RTOS based systems including Wind River’s VxWorks, Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY and VelOSity, Freescale Semiconductor’s MQX and LynuxWorks’ LynxOS. Floodgate can also be implemented as a bump-in-the-wire hardware solution to protect legacy embedded devices.
