Cybersecurity for Power, Utilities & Energy ProvidersSecuring the Journey Towards More Efficient and Resilient Grid Operations
Protect Your Critical Infrastructure
Utilities are modernizing power plants and grids to enhance reliability, lower costs and ensure regulatory compliance. Their OT networks are increasingly connected to IT, which together with increased automation raises their attack surface for potential cyber attacks. Securing the automated generation, transmission and distribution SCADA networks from cyber threats is paramount for improving grid performance and resiliency.Request a Demo

Tenable.ot helps power utilities protect vital grid assets from complex and sophisticated cyber threats
Cyber Threat Detection
Hybrid threat detection engines identify unauthorized network behavior or changes to RTUs, PLCs and IEDs, enforcing cybersecurity policy and ensuring reliable service.
Monitoring of device logic and operations status with a complete audit trail facilitates recovery efforts in the event of outages or service degradation.
Instant visibility and automatic tracking of local and remote assets for improved situational awareness, cyber security and recovery with reduced monitoring costs.
Secure Your Digital Transformation
As prime targets for cyber attacks, utilities are hesitant to fully embrace new convergence or Industry 4.0 driven grid modernization technologies because of the fear of expanding their attack surface. By actively discovering, classifying and tracking assets in local and remote sites from a single centralized deployment, Tenable.ot takes the security worries out of grid modernization while reducing operational costs.
Tenable.ot gives utilities full visibility into all operational assets including IEDs, RTUs and PLCs, breakers, meters, drivers and other devices. Combining active querying to devices and signature-based threat detection with policy and anomaly detection engines to the network, Tenable.ot provides the most robust cybersecurity solution for OT environments.
Raise cyber readiness
Get instant alerts on unauthorized access to critical devices at any site. Tenable.ot detects and immediately alerts you to any unauthorized change in controller logic, whether performed via the network or by physical access to the device. When an event triggers a system alert, it is accompanied by meaningful detailed information and context as to what caused the alert. This contextual information allows you to quickly detect cyber attacks and malfunctions that could impact service continuity.
NERC CIP Compliance
Continuous visibility, security, control simplifies NERC compliance. Tenable.ot helps you demonstrate full compliance with NERC CIP standards. Our proven solution provides real-time visibility, asset management and activity monitoring for OT networks. This enables utilities to comply with NERC CIP standards related to asset inventory management, security management (malicious code prevention, security event monitoring), configuration and change management, vulnerability assessment and other key areas.
Early warning to threats
Early detection of IED and PLC configuration changes allow for effective attack mitigation. Rigorous configuration control ensures you will be notified of any change to PLCs, IEDs and other devices. Tenable.ot tracks all changes to any device at the main plant or a remote site, providing you with early detection of cyber attacks and malfunctions. Early warning enables you to take the necessary mitigation steps to avoid outages or service degradation.
Identify suspicious behavior
Proactively discover bad actors trying to penetrate your environment and remove the threat. Tenable.ot helps you identify and mitigate advanced cyber attacks before they do damage. Tenable.ot monitors changes and deviations from normal network behavior, allowing you to detect early probing and reconnaissance activities by bad actors preparing to launch an attack. Using powerful device classification capabilities and by understanding the context of ICS commands, Tenable.ot detects even the most clandestine APT reconnaissance activities. This lets you begin threat hunting before the actual attack commences.
Mitigation and Recovery
Quickly recover from security events or human errors. Tenable.ot safeguards your critical infrastructure from cyber threats as well as human errors by ensures that your plants, grid assets and remote sites are protected from unauthorized intervention. All changes to industrial controllers and other devices are tracked and monitored. By providing early warning of attempted cyber attacks and human errors that could disrupt operational processes, Tenable.ot reduces the risk of costly outages and ensures service continuity.
