The Hunze en Aa Water Resource Board of the Netherlands is in charge of ensuring access to clean water and preventing flooding in the country. To help ensure safe operation of its pumping stations and other key systems, the Dutch water resource board needed a solution that was reliable and provided complete control. Hunze en Aa wanted to minimize risks in its SCADA environment and replace its eight year old, mixed environment of security tools with a central manageable solution, which they found in Check Point Next Generation Threat Prevention with SandBlast Zero-Day Protection.
Thanks to SandBlast Threat Emulation, we have been able to significantly increase our network security and prevent ongoing attacks. Check Point’s SCADA solution provides us with higher visibility and extended policy granularity, helping us comply with various standards set by the BIWA.
