Electric Utility Challenges
As providers of essential public services, it’s no surprise that electric utilities are high-value targets for cyber threats and nation-state actors. Unfortunately, the rapid growth of critical infrastructure cyberattacks is only one of many challenges electric utility operators must address without fail.
- Delivering service reliability and grid resiliency
- Modernizing infrastructure to meet increasing demand
- Maintaining growing numbers of complex assets
- Mounting regulatory scrutiny and mandates
Electric utilities increasingly invest in digitalization to meet challenges. The benefits of digital transformation and grid modernization are substantial. However, these efforts can leave widely-distributed operational assets vulnerable to cyberattacks.
Ensuring Grid Resiliency Requires Rethinking Cybersecurity
Electric utility companies often rely on IT-centric and network perimeter-based controls to provide secure access for maintenance operators and field service personnel. However, IT-centric tools cannot natively secure Industrial Control Systems (ICS) nor protect the increasing volumes of machine-to-machine (M2M) data communications. The lack of native support exposes exploitable security gaps across the distributed, cyber-physical assets and energy management systems (EMS) utilities depend on to meet customer demands for reliable electric power. These gaps create ideal circumstances for cyberattackers, service outages, and failed regulatory compliance.
No electric utility can afford a weak cybersecurity posture.
Modernize without Compromise
You can protect critical infrastructure from escalating cyberattacks, strengthen grid resiliency, and meet your regulatory burdens without impacting digitalization efforts. It starts by modernizing access control to distributed operational technology using an asset-centric approach grounded in zero trust principles.
Achieve Zero Trust Access with Xage
Xage accelerates adopting zero trust identity-based access management and data security for electric utilities.
The Xage Fabric is purpose-built for operational technology. Its asset-centric approach reduces the complexity of protecting every digital interaction across power generation, transmission, distribution, and metering systems. With Xage, your security teams can enact granular, just-in-time access controlled down to the asset level to reduce vulnerable attack surface area and protect sensitive data.
The unique mesh architecture eliminates the need to rip and replace your current investments or jeopardize productivity to manage access to your OT, IIoT, IT, and cloud infrastructure.
