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.

    Murrumbidgee Irrigation

    The importance of protecting SCADA systems has never been greater than is the case today. With SCADA systems scattered across its vast irrigation infrastructure, Murrumbidgee Irrigation lives this challenge every day. When security penetration testing pinpointed potential security deficiencies, Murrumbidgee Irrigation embarked on an initiative to transform its security network architecture. After comparing different solutions and testing many of them, Murrumbidgee Irrigation chose Palo Alto Networks® Next-Generation Security Platform. In addition to providing the company’s small ICT team with a single point of contact for multiple areas of its security environment, the platform enabled Murrumbidgee Irrigation to move from a largely reactive security posture to one that is predictive.
