<strong>Vancouver, B.C. &mdash; March 12</strong><br />Wurldtech Security Technologies, a provider of cybersecurity solutions to vendors and operators of SCADA, process control and mission-critical systems worldwide, announced the launch of Delphi, the industry&rsquo;s first cybersecurity vulnerability database for industrial control systems. Delphi is designed to provide vendors, operators, system integrators and service providers unparalleled visibility into the reliability, safety and security of the systems and networks essential to the operation of the world&rsquo;s critical infrastructure.<br /> <br />&ldquo;We understand the unique security challenges facing the industrial automation industry today, particularly when attempting to address the issue of securing legacy industrial control systems,&rdquo; stated Tyler Williams, president and CEO of Wurldtech. &ldquo;Our mission is to provide meaningful cybersecurity solutions to safeguard the integrity of critical industrial automation and we are proud to announce Delphi, yet another tool to help our customers accurately identify real risks and make better-informed decisions to protect their industrial operations.&rdquo;<br /> <br />The Need for a Comprehensive View of Security Risks for Legacy Industrial Control Systems <br />As cybersecurity risks increase in frequency, severity and sophistication, the process of managing the security of SCADA and process control systems is becoming extremely difficult. Currently, security solutions for legacy industrial control systems are delivered through a small number of companies and disparate commercial products from different vendors lacking integration and interoperability. The end result is a high degree of complexity, increased operational costs, limited visibility and reliance on inappropriate data to make critical security decisions. For a majority of industrial organizations, the outcome is a weak security-risk profile &mdash; an insecure network infrastructure, incomplete regulatory compliance, security audit failures and increased security management costs that are not in line with business objectives. <br /><br />"A major industry challenge is the lack of known specific security risks that could impact the reliability and/or availability of industrial control systems," said Joe Weiss of Applied Control Solutions LLC. "Databases such as Delphi can provide a valuable source of information from which to plan, develop and deploy the appropriate security solutions for the unique requirements of industrial operations."<br />
