Prevent successful attacks and safely modernize operations

Secure your connected environments

Electric utilities worldwide count on Palo Alto Networks® to prevent successful cyberattacks, safely modernize OT networks and exceed compliance requirements.


Smarter security for digital smart grids

As you move from proprietary industrial automation systems to smart grids that integrate operational technology, or OT, from multiple sources, you need security that stops cyberattackers from infiltrating the network, disrupting critical services, destroying industrial assets or threatening the safety of the environment.

Palo Alto Networks prevents successful cyberattacks across IT and OT infrastructure. The Security Operating Platform allows you to safely modernize and integrate your networks as well as meet or exceed security-related compliance requirements.
