Icon Labs’ Floodgate Defender Embedded Software Solution Achieves McAfee Compatible Status

Icon Labs’ Floodgate Defender Security Software for Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) and McAfee ePO platform together provide a proven security solution for protecting and managing the Internet of Things (IoT), industrial control, Smart Grid and DoD Operational Assets

August 21, 2014 – West Des Moines, Iowa
Icon Labs (www.iconlabs.com), a leading provider of embedded networking and security technology, today announced that its Floodgate embedded software solution has achieved “McAfee Compatible” status. The newly integrated solution integrates with the McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) platform, a key component of McAfee’s security management offerings, and Icon Labs’ Floodgate Software products for embedded devices. With this solution, joint customers can manage security policies and receive security events for embedded devices including, industrial control, IoT, Smart Grid and DoD operational assets.

Icon Labs products provide embedded security for IoT and Machine to Machine (M2M) solutions such as aerospace, military and space probes, industrial and medical control devices, and even consumer electronics products. The Floodgate products provide a “defense in depth” solution to protect control units and endpoint devices from cyber threats, aid in compliance with regulatory mandates and guidelines, and gather and report command, event and device status information for audit requirements.

“By integrating Icon Labs Floodgate products with the McAfee ePO platform, we are able to bring enterprise level security capabilities to RTOS-based devices,” says Alan Grau, President of Icon Labs. “Our solutions extend the McAfee Security Connected architecture to devices that have historically lacked key security capabilities. The result is a simplified operational experience at a significantly reduced TCO.”

The McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program is the foundation of a technology ecosystem designed to assemble the world’s leading security innovations. It is the security industry’s premier technology-partnering program, delivering integrated solutions that maximize the value of existing customer investments. Working together, McAfee and its partners deliver solutions that are more comprehensive than those available from any single vendor.

“We’re pleased to see Icon Labs again complete McAfee compatibility testing for an additional product that will be important to our joint customers,” said Ed Barry, Vice President of Global Technology Alliances for McAfee, part of Intel Security. “Benefits of our joint solution include greater protection, and improved compliance costs for protecting and managing IoT, industrial control, Smart Grid and DoD Operational Assets.”

Icon Labs Software products are now available through McAfee’s invitation only Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) Sales Teaming Program (STP). Through this alliance, mutual customers will have access to Icon Labs’ Floodgate Security products – now tightly integrated and tested with the McAfee ePO platform.

Icon Labs Floodgate Defender Software Solutions are integrated into McAfee ePO platform, the first platform that lets enterprises and governments centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors, offering unprecedented cost savings and return on investment. With more than 45,000 customers and managing more than 60 million PCs and servers, this unique platform is helping McAfee SIA partners to extend their reach and create complementary functionality. The Floodgate innovation allows this capability to extend to RTOS-based endpoints, making them visible to the enterprise while concealing them from hackers.

Icon Labs Joins EDGE® Innovation Network

Icon Labs to provide cyber defense intelligence and support for United States military, homeland security and first responders

West Des Moines, Iowa, June 11, 2014 – Icon Labs (www.iconlabs.com), a leading provider of embedded networking and security technology, today announced that it has joined the EDGE® Innovation Network.

The EDGE Innovation Network is a collaborative, open-environment enabling industry and academia, with government input, to work together to enhance the delivery cycle of new technologies and innovative capabilities to military personnel, law enforcement and first responders. The EDGE network creates and maintains this open environment where members and customers can characterize, develop and deliver new and innovative technologies and capabilities to equip a more mobile, better connected and informed end-users.

Icon Labs CEO featured in EE Journal Newsletter (May 2014)

Only a Heartbleed Away, Security in the Age of IoT.

Security in our embedded systems is no longer an issue we can ignore and in this week’s Fish Fry, we get down to the heart of the matter with Alan Grau (President – Icon Labs). Alan and I chat about the rise of intrusion detection in RTOS-based systems and we address the challenges of providing security for Smart Home devices. Read more here.

Icon Labs Receives Cool Vendor Recognition from Gartner

Protecting against cyber-attacks by extending security to all the devices around us

Vendors selected for the “Cool Vendor” report are innovative, impactful and intriguing

May 6, 2014 – West Des Moines, Iowa Icon Labs (www.iconlabs.com), a leading provider of embedded networking and security technology, today announced that Gartner, one of the world’s leading technology analyst firms, has named Icon Labs as a Cool Vendor in the Embedded Software and Systems Space for 2014.

Icon Labs develops and provides embedded security software solutions for companies developing Internet of Things and M2M solutions such as aerospace, military and space probes, industrial and medical control devices and even consumer electronics products. Their solutions help protect control units from potential cyber threats.

Currently, RTOS based devices are invisible to the enterprise management system, but visible to hackers. Icon Labs solution turns that all around – making them visible to the management system and invisible to hackers. Icon Labs extends enterprise quality protection against cyber-attacks to the edge devices that lack basic security.

We believe this recognition by Gartner points out how significant embedded cyber security issues are,” said Alan Grau, CEO of Icon Labs. “We are quite proud that we have been recognized as one of the Coolest Vendors in our space. This is quite an honor and we feel this confirms that what we are doing at Icon Labs to protect against cyber-attacks and cyber terrorism is a critical part of today’s security response. ”

A security solution for embedded devices must ensure the device firmware has not been tampered with, secure the data stored by the device, secure communication and protect the device from cyber-attacks. This can only be achieved by including security in the early stages of design. Intrusion detection and prevention for embedded devices is not one size fits all. Requirements must take into consideration the cost of a security failure (economic, environmental, social, etc.), the risk of attack, available attack vectors, and the cost of implementing a solution.

Icon Labs provides a full suite of security solutions for OEMs building embedded devices. The Floodgate product family provides intrusion detection and intrusion prevention capabilities that are designed specifically for use in embedded and RTOS-based devices. Floodgate products support management system integration for remote management and situational awareness. Icon Labs also provides solutions to harden the device, secure communication channels and block DOS attacks. In addition to embedded security software and hardware solutions, Icon Labs provides professional services capabilities to accelerate customer deployments and facilitate unique implementation.
