Made in the USA Goldilock, the UK-based creator of a multi-patented physical network isolation solution and cyber kill-switch deployed by the UK Ministry of Defence and Ukrainian CyberCommand, has signed a US development and production deal that gives Patriot Tools the right to manufacture and supply Drawbridge within the United States for five years, using only US-made and sourced components. Patriot Tools aims to target the US energy, transmission and financial services sectors with a Drawbridge model specifically designed for their needs. Goldilock CEO Tony Hasek said: “Not all personal, business, national critical infrastructure and military systems and data should be online 24/7. Instead, organisations must adopt ‘disconnectedness’, and be prepared to disconnect OT, IT systems and other digital assets at the drop of a hat. The new default must be true physical connection/disconnection on-demand, which is precisely what Goldilock’s patented Drawbridge delivers.” Capital connectivity Spitfire Network Services Ltd, a provider of voice, internet and wide area network connectivity services, is expanding its product offering for customers in London through a wholesale partnership deal with Vorboss.
