Floodgate Defender, McAfee ePO compatibility improves RTOS security in IoT

Icon Labs software solutions achieve McAfee Compatible status to extend security and compliance in embedded end devices

West Des Moines, Iowa. Icon Labs has announced that the Floodgate embedded software solution has achieved “McAfee Compatible” status, allowing it to be integrated with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform for improved security management in Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Joint customers will be able to receive security events and manage security policies for embedded devices.

Icon Labs Floodgate provides “defense in depth” for control unit and endpoint device Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOSs) that are susceptible to cyber threats. The integration of Floodgate Defender with McAfee ePO also helps extend regulatory compliance and audit control to endpoints while concealing them from cyber attacks, allowing IT managers to securely gather event and device status information.

“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, 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.”

“We’re pleased to see Icon Labs again complete McAfee compatibility testing for an additional product that will be important to our joint customers,” says Ed Barry, Vice President of Global Technology Alliances for McAfee, a 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 products are available through the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA), which can be visited at http://www.mcafee.com/sia.
