Innovative Solutions for Cybersecurity, Operational Awareness and Analytics for Utilities
Smart Solutions for a Smarter Grid
Efficiency. Reliability. Security. For nearly a decade Vencore Labs has been enabling utilities to achieve these critical goals by providing advanced consulting, network architecture and engineering, as well as cybersecurity consulting and continuous monitoring services. This support has allowed utilities to design and deploy new SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) network technologies, as well as optimize and secure their operations.
With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), utilities are faced with increased cyber threats as advanced wireless technologies are deployed to automate distribution and substations with intelligent capabilities such as line and fault sensing, feed circuit reconfiguration, transformer health monitoring, and smart water and gas metering. Additionally, utilities are now turning their wireless field networks into multiple service networks by adding innovative services such as intelligent streetlights, smart outdoor lighting devices, smart traffic lights and wireless parking meters. As networks expand and become increasingly complex, continuous monitoring and anomaly detection has never been more necessary.
In addition, information and operations technologies are increasingly integrated. In response, our continuous monitoring, analytics and cybersecurity consulting services are comprehensive and proven. From planning through solution implementation, our engineers focus on identifying root problems within operations and enhancing end-to-end security. We assist in securing your next-generation grid network by taking a holistic view from both the bottom up and top down. Our field area network wireless security analysis and operations visualization tools are unique solutions in the industry.
Utilities and a wide range of government agencies have benefited from our systems engineering and development support for network planning, design and management applications, converged networks and new technology introduction services. Our network architects and operations-process-design experts provide rigorous planning expertise, helping utilities to harness advanced technologies and processes to support emerging operations’ needs.
Specifically, our ground-breaking cybersecurity monitoring solution SecureSmart™, is an integrated cybersecurity, operations and engineering solution for Automated Meter Infrastructure (AMI), Distribution Automation (DA) and SCADA systems. SecureSmart™ is the industry’s only customizable wireless network intrusion detection system that provides real-time network health, anomaly detection, threat analysis and visualization.
