Clean Energy Industry Challenges

Demand for clean and renewable energy shows no sign of slowing. As the growth of installed capacity accelerates globally, so do the challenges facing owners and operators scaling their operations to keep pace.

  • Rising cost of installation
  • Supply chain risks
  • Growing regulatory pressures
  • Cost-effective energy storage

Utility-scale energy producers continue to benefit from hundreds of billions in new investments. However, meeting aggressive decarbonization targets places enormous stress on cybersecurity safeguards.

From Fluctuating Sunshine to Sophisticated Cyber Threats

Widely-distributed assets must be defended from costly cyberattacks and nation-state threat actors

Power generation and storage infrastructure must comply with mandates to avoid interruptions and fines

Automation and digitalization must be embraced to reduce maintenance overhead and boost profits

Rapid Growth Requires Rethinking Cybersecurity

Energy operators often rely on IT-centric tools to meet demands for secure access to the distributed infrastructure that underpins energy generation and storage. However, IT-centric tools cannot natively secure Industrial Control Systems (ICS), leading to security gaps. These gaps, magnified across interconnected OT, IT, and cloud environments, create ideal circumstances for cyberattackers and failed regulatory compliance.

No utility-scale energy operator can afford a weak cybersecurity posture.

Modernize without Compromise

You can protect your operations from escalating cyberattacks and reduce regulatory burdens without impacting digitalization. It starts by modernizing secure access to vital operational technology assets using an approach grounded in zero trust principles.

Achieve Zero Trust Access with Xage

Xage accelerates the adoption of zero trust identity-based access management for energy owners and operators. 

The Xage Fabric is purpose-built for operational technology and securing the OT-IT-Cloud interconnected environments commonplace in clean & renewable energy deployments. Its identity-centric approach reduces the complexity of real-time, multi-party secure access to energy generation and storage assets. With Xage, your security teams can enact granular, just-in-time access controlled down to the asset level. 

The unique mesh architecture removes any need to rip and replace your current investments or jeopardize productivity to protect your OT, IT, and cloud infrastructure.

U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory Selects Xage for Clean Energy Cybersecurity Program.
