Learn why PAN-OS® 7.1 is important to the Utilities industry.

Who We Are

Securing the electric grid has become a top priority for nations, given their extreme dependency on an available and stable source of power. Multiple considerations make securing the grid very challenging:

  • Growing exposure of operational technology (OT) systems with increased external connectivity and adoption of IIoT technologies
  • Meeting strict regulatory compliance obligations
  • Defending against sophisticated advanced persistent threats
  • Securing corporate Internet access and data centers

What We Do

We deliver a complete security platform that addresses all the challenges of securing electric utility IT and OT networks through several core capabilities:

  • Unrivaled network traffic visibility via deep packet inspection of ICS protocols and applications, user profiles, and content/threats.
  • Zero Trust network segmentation with role-based controls that support ICS-specific standards and regulations, such as NERC CIP.
  • Protection of vulnerable automation systems from known and zero-day threats via network AV/IPS, sandboxing and endpoint security.





    How We Are Different

    • The components of our platform – next-generation firewall, threat intelligence cloud, advanced endpoint security – collaborate in an integrated and automated fashion to prevent cyberattacks.
    • Unique single-pass, parallel processing engine (SP3) delivers unrivaled Layer 7 classification performance, native correlation of data, and ease of use/management.
    • Traps advanced endpoint protection protects unpatched systems from zero-day attacks using a novel approach that stops exploit techniques.
    • Threat Intelligence Cloud automates the analysis of threats and sharing of intelligence with the network and endpoints.
    • Advanced API allows for integration and automation with other security and analytics product.
