Remote Monitoring Electrical Grid
Electrical Grid Resilience

Binary Armor virtual guard can be hosted on an intelligent-recloser’s main processor board. Once integrated, Binary Armor validates bi-directional data traffic using patented state-based processing to ensure no cyber-initiated malicious communications are allowed to trip reclosers and cause grid-wide outages.

Remote Monitoring Oil Spill Usecase
Oil & Gas Pipeline Protection

Binary Armor virtual guard can be hosted on wireless devices that communicate with automated pipeline valves. Malicious commands attempting to pass through the wireless device and drive unsafe pipeline pressure are stopped cold by the Binary Armor’s enforcement of safe parameters in pressure control messages.

Maritime Use case
Protecting Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS)

Protected ECDIS are crucial to safe maritime navigation and effective world commerce. Binary Armor virtual guard protects ECDIS for fleet owners and ships captains, restoring the balance in favor of safe navigation throughout the world’s oceans.

SCADA Water Treatment
Protecting Water Treatment Plants

Binary Armor virtual guard can be hosted on control station processors to shield PLCs from commands that could release untreated waste-water. By validating and allowing only approved message content, Binary Armor secures water systems against unauthorized changes while two-factor authentication protects against insider threats.

Virtual Guard AMI
Safeguarding Advanced Metering Infrastructure

Hosting Binary Armor virtual guard onto Advanced Metering Infrastructure wireless communication devices provides valuable network insight and cybersecurity protection. The Binary Armor’s patented data inspection and blocking functions ensure that flawed or malicious data is not delivered into an electrical utility’s core network where it can wreak havoc.

Virtual Guard Building
Building Automation System Protection

Internet-connected Building Automation Systems (BAS), while useful for remote energy management, increase building sub-systems’ vulnerability to cyberattacks. Binary Armor virtual guard hosted on a BAS Controller permits only pre-approved data exchange, thus making a malicious code attacks against the BAS network much less likely.
