Stratus and Xage Address Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity at the Industrial Edge

MAYNARD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stratus Technologies, a global leader in simplified, protected, and autonomous Edge Computing platforms, today announced the validation of Xage Security Fabric on the Stratus ztC Edge computing platform following performance testing conducted by Xage Security. Xage is integrating the Stratus ztC Edge and Stratus ftServer® computing platforms into its edge, enterprise, and cloud operations.

The combination of Xage Security Fabric with ztC Edge and ftServer creates highly available and scalable cybersecurity solutions for securing critical infrastructure and protecting operational data from the controller to the cloud without disrupting operations. With Xage Security Fabric successfully running on Stratus computing platforms, operations benefit from comprehensive security easily deployed and managed by OT teams. This includes capabilities such as Universal Tamperproof Protection, Rogue Device Detection and Control, Remote-based Access Control (IAM/RBAC), and Dynamic Data Security. The combined Xage and Stratus solutions are ideal for Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Pharma, Food & Beverage, Material Handling, and any industry where data loss and downtime are unacceptable.

Continuous Protection for Critical Infrastructure

“Companies have been forced to rethink strategies for enabling secure remote collaboration and developing new opportunities for revenue in order to survive,” said Xage CEO Duncan Greatwood. “Edge Computing is a critical foundation for effective cybersecurity in Industry 4.0 environments, and Xage and Stratus are meeting today’s challenges head-on. Together, we are assisting customers with digital transformation to better manage geographically-distributed and multi-party operations.”

Stratus ensures the continuous availability of critical applications like Xage Security Fabric by delivering zero-touch Edge Computing platforms that are simple to deploy and maintain, protected from interruptions and threats, and operate autonomously. Stratus platforms also feature built-in virtualization and self-monitoring for consolidating workloads and reducing unplanned downtime. ztC Edge is a zero-touch, secure, and automated Edge Computing platform purpose built for edge environments. ftServer offers better than 5 nines availability, eliminating data loss and ensuring all transactions are processed and all applications are available in the enterprise or at the edge.

Xage provides the building blocks to enable scalable and flexible cybersecurity across operations, enterprise, and the cloud. The Xage Security Fabric provides a zero-trust identity-based remote access solution for users, applications, and machines. Field deployments and lab testing of Xage Security Fabric on ztC Edge and ftServer showed that Fabric was handled efficiently and allowed customers to seamlessly deploy Fabric within their infrastructures.

Jason Andersen, Vice President of Business Line Management, at Stratus said, “New, complex cybersecurity threats targeting industrial operations are putting greater strain on companies’ limited resources and staff already focused on modernization. Running Xage on ztC Edge enables teams to easily and reliably deploy a robust set of security capabilities across an operation, without the need for specialized skills, making for the perfect combination of zero-touch compute and zero-trust security.”

Three-Month Trial

Xage is offering a Zero Trust Remote Access free trial offer for three months to Stratus customers. This Stratus customer-only trial includes the Xage Security Fabric and the use of a preconfigured on-premises Xage Node, leveraging ztC Edge, for enforcement.
