How BOUNCER Helps You Meet the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS)
As a security professional working at a petrochemical plant, protecting your network from sophisticated cyber-attacks is a daily challenge. Meeting the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) is a critical step towards protecting your endpoints from threats that can pose substantial hazards to the environment and civilian population. You need a solution that can help you meet the Federal regulations by protecting your network from modern day targeted attacks and malware threats.
Our application whitelisting solution was specifically designed to stop the execution of any malicious code intended to compromise the security and performance of your sensitive systems without compromising the effectiveness or efficiency of your IT staff. Bouncer was designed for real users like yourself to meet guidelines, offer unmatched security, provide intuitive management, and manage change your organization needs to meet its business objectives.
Violations Can Leave Your Systems Vulnerable
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued CFATS to ensure effective security for high-risk chemical facilities, including Risk-Based Performance Standards (RBPS) around securing your critical SCADA and DCS systems. Violating these cyber-security standards can leave your network open to a number of problems, including:
- Unprotected endpoints vulnerable to malicious programs and variants
- Inaccurate assessments of your security controls
- Difficulty monitoring and managing continuous system changes and activities
- Susceptibility to targeted attacks intended to exploit your network and facility
- Inconsistencies between the configurations on your various corporate endpoints
