Energy and Utilities Overview

Divider text here
Energy and utility companies, along with standards organizations, are taking extreme measures to protect critical infrastructure devices, SCADA networks, and critical application servers from threats. An order was issued by the President to improve critical infrastructure security, resulting in a host of government regulations including NIST, CIP, and NERC. 

These companies are fundamental to our infrastructure and need to be proactive and focus on the most likely threats based on the combination of access risks, vulnerabilities, attack patterns, and known exploits. While vulnerability and access risk management can help deter and detect breaches in computer network security, these organizations also need network device security including power and electrical systems.

Remain Compliant

Due to the impact that compromising any of these systems would have on the general public or the country as a whole, there are numerous regulations around energy and utility companies. By being able to account for who has access to critical information, multi-factor authentication for password resets, and penetration testing to ensure the validity of patching, you will be able to show you are not only compliant but are truly protected.

Reduce Threat Surface

With a vulnerability management solution, organizations can prioritize their vulnerabilities based on not just their CVE score but also how these vulnerabilities would impact their unique network structure. By concentrating on a prioritized list, the threat surface will be reduced quicker by taking care of the most important vulnerabilities.

Improve Efficiencies

Considering the large number of critical devices and digital systems, there is no time to waste on a false attack. With network threat detection you can be assured that the only alerts you will get are for verified attacks so that your team spends their time where it counts.

Reduce IT Costs

Energy and Utility companies employ hundreds if not thousands of people across the country. In order to make sure that all of these people have access they must make sure they are provisioned correctly and that their access is protected by passwords and multiple factors of authentication. With automated provisioning and mobile password reset, your security team can spend less time on administrative work and more time protecting your network.
