Critical Infrastructure

Whether you're operating a pan-continental electricity provider or a local facility for district heating, your services are critical for your society and economy. 

Running critical infrastructure used to be easy and straightforward. In today's connected world, however, what used to be isolated and proprietary control systems are now part of general, often open and unsecured IP networks. Although this transformation offers great improvements in efficiency, it also introduces new and very serious threats.

Additionally, a common challenge is to ensure confidential and reliable communications between operation centers and geographically dispersed, often remote, production sites. Communication downtime is not only a matter of inconvenience, but can pose a great security risk as well.

In summary, these are the major threats and challenges to critical infrastructures:

  • Service outage due to cyberterrorist and hacktivist attacks
  • Security risks and operational disturbance due to unreliable communication
  • Securely manage the transformation from legacy and isolated systems to modernized applications communicating over open networks
