Ironclad® is the next evolution of security-centric-integrated-hyper-converged PRIVATE Cloud Infrastructure designed specifically for hosting Industrial Control Systems (ICS), the next generation data center and the future of secure private cloud computing integrates IT and OT under a single reliable, scalable hyper-converged information processing facility. Through our portfolio of security-centric hypervisor solutions, Security Limits Inc. accelerates the adoption of PRIVATE CLOUD (Air-Gap) hyper-converged infrastructure and cloud-based computing solutions. Our patented design, IronClad® enables faster and cost-effective deployments (12-18 months). Our “BlueSky/back-of-the-napkin” approach is simple… Ironclad® eliminates waste associated with building procurement frameworks and development of RFPs since the entire design is a “turn-key solution” RFPs can released immediately. Utilities/Customers only need to choose systems integrator and program management office based on “best pricing and responses”. Ironclad® once built and fully operational is a 21st Century secure infrastructure for hosting Industrial Control Systems and Corporate IT. It allows for a fresh start as Utilities will be able to slowly decommission the old sinking ship (Legacy Infrastructure). The IronClad® design integrates cyber and physical security by combining people, technology, and processes under a single NextGen iSOC model functioning over a Hyper-V infrastructure hosting both IT and OT systems and resources on completely separate set of hardware, but fully integrated. IronClad® consists of the following state-of-the-art technologies and processes, but not limited to:
*Government & Private Sector (Energy/Utilities) Realtime Cyber Security Threat Hunting Collaboration
*Governance and Compliance
*Design Enables Compliance with 641 Cyber and Physical Security Controls on Day-1 – CMM Maturity Level-1 or 2
*Modernized Policies and Procedures Mapped to Security Controls
*Industrial Control System (SCADA Modernization and Systems Migration\Upgrades)
*Convergence of both Physical and Cyber Security Operations Under a Single iSOC®
*Smart Grid (AMI) Ready Solutions; fully integrated. Design includes per site integration (Layer- 1-7 – e.g. OTN-DWDM – Nokia or Cisco) and inter-connectivity overlays for on-boarding new tenants (Internal OpCos and Business Units)
*Substation Automation – Information Processing Facility Ready for Upgrade/Migration
SCADA Ready Solutions
We deliver the industry’s only fully integrated and Hyper-V PRIVATE cloud infrastructure designed specifically for hosting Industrial Control Systems, allowing customers to focus on business innovation and strategy instead of integrating, validating, and managing IT infrastructure in the current inefficient O&M Model. We also help companies write up rate-base studies so that investments can be capitalized (CAPEX Modeling).
The rate base can include: cash, working capital, materials and supplies, deductions for accumulated provisions for depreciation, contributions in aid of construction, customer advances for construction, accumulated deferred income taxes, and accumulated deferred investment tax credits, all dependent on the method that is used in the calculation.
