Substations secured with cybersecurity solution
Utility safety: Owl Computing Technologies secures substations with Data Diode Cybersecurity solution.
Safety products:Owl Computing Technologies Inc., a cybersecurity solutions provider, is now protecting substations around the U.S. with its DualDiode® Technology. After working closely with a number of equipment providers who serve the substation market, Owl's OPDS-100 and OPDS-100D are now protecting digital control systems for equipment like static VAR compensators and FACTS (Flexible Alternating Current Transmission Systems). Interested parties will be able to see demonstrations of these solutions at the DISTRIBUTECH Conference and Exhibition February 9-11th in Orlando.
The Owl Perimeter Defense Solution (OPDS) is a deterministic, one-way only solution that establishes a secure cyber perimeter around the substation. It mitigates cyberattacks, while simultaneously allowing monitoring data (syslog, SNMP traps, SIEM, alerts, events) to be securely and continuously transferred to remote users. This provides benefits for both the T&D operators and the equipment providers. For operators, deploying a Non-ERC data diode solution reduces their obligations to meet NERC-CIP compliance, saving time and resources. For equipment providers and operators, they can receive monitoring information remotely 24x7 and keep tabs on performance and operating conditions without having to maintain a presence on-site.
"Media reports of attacks on critical infrastructure are now commonplace," said Dr. Ron Mraz, President & CEO of Owl. "Protecting substations is another step forward in securing the overall reliability of the grid."
