Cyber Security – Energy Industry

Industrial control systems security for the energy industry.

Energy utilities are no longer immune to cyber-threats. In fact, since they have ceased to operate as disconnected silos, they are becoming a popular target with cyber criminals and hackers worldwide.

With the emergence of the Industrial Internet, the introduction of non-proprietary technologies and the exposure of the once isolated OT Network to IT environments, security risks have become imminent.

New threats rise and more than ever, security solution providers need to be ahead of the attackers. When it comes to the energy industry, the damage of a successful attack is not something anyone wants to test.

Securing the OT Network

Just like with securing an IT environment, network visibility is key. XSense oversees the OT Network, as its machine learning and modeling abilities understand how it operates and when it changes. This ensures real-time detection of unfamiliar activity, be it a cyber-attack, an operational malfunction or a tampering incident.

In addition to real-time alerting, XSense provides OT operators the ability to see, analyze and understand data, minimizing the chances for disruption of operations and system shutdown.

With no interruption to operation, XSense seamlessly inspects the existing OT infrastructure and does not require any new changes or additional investments to be an effective tool.
