Bear Systems is building on its next generation cybersecurity platform to provide a range of SIMPLE (Secure Integrated ML Platform Leveraging Expertise) solutions for the world’s most pressing needs.  This blog entry is one of a series of introductions showing how Bear can provide a SIMPLE solution for specific vertical challenges.

Outside of the military, and many might argue that distinction, Big Oil is the most paranoid group when it comes to data protection – and for good reason.  Big Oil regularly deals with data that, if stolen, could cost billions of dollars.  The information on new fields, operations, and maintenance are critical to their success as, for example, an oil pipe can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars each hour it is not working.

At the same time, Big Oil is highly focused on efficiencies at scale and they are one of the verticals that is constantly pushing boundaries to find new level of success.  Unfortunately, the past few efforts have not provided the returns desired.  Big Oil spent billions to place IoT sensors everywhere and only got flooded with insecure data before turning everything off.  Attempts to move into efficient cloud deployments and also been a nightmare given the cost of private clouds, any inability to securely communicate with cloud deployments, and the disparity between cloud and Enterprise deployments.

This last issue is covered in the SIMPLE Cloud blog post but the other aspects for Big Oil and Gas still need to be addressed…by SIMPLE GO!  I know you are shocked…sorry…not really.

The focus of SIMPLE GO is to provide a unified visual management platform that provides quantum resilient protection across all types of devices and communications.  Within this secure system, SIMPLE GO enables Big Oil & Gas to encapsulate their domain expertise into private visual tools that can be reused through Robotic Process Automaton (RPA) tasks.  For example, SIMPLE GO can automate taking down a given device, spin up a backup, and redirect communications to that backup based on an expert workflow.

SIMPLE GO is comprised of a series of workflow engines that work together at the edge to eliminate noise and only send pertinent, highly secure, data upstream.  AT each level, the SIMPLE GO AI system can help to automate responses leveraging domain expert-driven automaton tasks.  The result of these efforts is to drastically reduce management overhead while reducing maintenance downtime.

SIMPLE GO also provides better-than-private cloud protection on public cloud deployments and SIMPLE GO removes barriers between Enterprise and cloud systems.  With SIMPLE GO, admins can enforce compliance and organizational rules at scale through central visual controls.  SIMPLE GO eliminates the need for experts, such as cybersecurity experts, in operations.

There is obviously more, much more, to our SIMPLE GO solution and, if you are interested, please contact us to learn more!
