An Interview with Eric Byres

The ICS Detection Market has achieved almost all of the funding and attention the last two years, including my analysis. Last month Bayshore Networks announced and got some attention with their new SCADAFuse “inline protection tool for industrial networks”. It sounded a lot like the Tofino of 5+ years ago, so I decided to get the creator of the industrial firewall / gateway market, Eric Byres, on the podcast to help me analyze this market in 2019 and where it will go in the future.

At 33:50 of the podcast we shift topics and discuss aDolus’s FACT score for software and firmware. They say it is like a FICO credit score that measures the authenticity and security of the software / firmware, see their 3-minute video.
