Without successful security measures being utilized within a company, it is likely it will be hacked, its confidential data will be stolen and it will suffer catastrophic affects that could actually close the doors on the operation for good.
Within the smart grid industry specifically, AlertEnterprise automates compliance with the NERC (News - Alert) CIP 004 through an end-to-end solution that offers total compliance management. This solution combines cyber security with risk management, automated management of training and personnel risk assessments, while offering a high level of awareness to information about personnel who have permission for access to Critical Cyber Assets.
Some benefits that providers will gain from implementation of this solution are: a full view of risk for managers across the enterprise, a capability that highlights compliance violations, control system risks, IT security gaps and physical access; remediation, which ensures an effective process for detecting, mitigating and preventing security incidents with or without human intervention; minimization of property and human loss during stress situations; and automatic training notifications and certifications.
Additionally, Anue Systems powers a Net Tool Optimizer which enables teams to increase network visibility. By offering a much higher level of network visibility, the Anue Net Tool Optimizer security solution provides the correct data to each vital security tool, allowing for monitoring to instantly detect less than ordinary network behavior.
“To security professionals, the network monitoring switch is an innovation that will make their lives easier," said Rudy Millian, NTO product manager, in a statement. "The Anue NTO delivers the right network data to the right monitoring tool for efficient analysis and remediation."
