Perimeter-based defenses and threat detection technologies are not enough to defend against modern cyber attacks. Our electric grids are under attack by nation states. Many legacy programmable logic controllers (PLCs), intelligent edge devices (IEDs), remote terminal units (RTUs), controllers, gateways, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) edge devices are vulnerable due to a lack of basic cryptographic controls such as: multi-factor authentication, secure boot, secure update, and secure, encrypted communications.
Electric utilities industrial automation manufacturers must ensure compliance with cybersecurity standards such as NERC CIP 003, NIST 800-53, IEC 62443-3-3, and FIPS 140-2. Keeping up with these standards as well as emerging standards from the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and Industrie 4.0 is challenging.
Mocana’s End-to-end Cybersecurity System is a FIPS 140-2 validated embedded cybersecurity software solution that ensures device trustworthiness and secure communications by giving industrial automation manufacturers. With solutions for new builds and legacy, brownfield upgrades, Mocana provides electric utilities and OEMs with an easy way to harden new or legacy brownfield RTUs, IEDs, and controllers with multi-factor authentication and trust chaining, as well as secure boot to validate the firmware, OS and applications.
