CCS Announces Launch of Cyber Subsidiary

CCS-Inc. has announced the launch of a new cybersecurity subsidiary, FoxGuard Solutions, which will provide products and services to protect critical control systems in power generation and other critical infrastructure facilities.

“These facilities, like most businesses and organizations, use computers to operate,” said Steve Miko, VP of Software. “However, due to intrusion risk, most do not connect to the Internet and are therefore unable to receive important software updates. FoxGuard offers its customers the tools needed to keep computers and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems protected and up to date without ever having to plug in to outside sources.”

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security defines critical infrastructure as “the assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, public health or safety, or any combination thereof.”

“FoxGuard is a result of the increasingly urgent needs of several of our customers in the power industry to protect and update control systems that are not connected to the Internet,” said CCS-Inc.’s CEO and President Marty Muscatello. “We continually look for ways to solve more of our customers’ technology challenges.”
