Utilidata has announced a ramp-up of its cybersecurity efforts, leveraging the potential of the company’s Signal Intelligence Engine (SIe) through a new application to detect cyber-attacks on the grid. This application, to be launched commercially in the second half of 2016, is the first in a series of new product releases that will focus on ensuring grid stability and security by identifying compromised circuits in real-time, deep within a utility's physical infrastructure.
Utilidata has turned its monitoring capabilities into actionable intelligence and automated control—helping electric utilities optimize power delivery, save ratepayer dollars, and mitigate risk. Utilidata also is uniquely positioned to help its customers detect and respond to persistent attacks as the distribution grid becomes more networked and cyber threats increase.
Alongside the launch of its first cybersecurity application, Utilidata also announced structural changes and enhancements to its research and development organization to support the product expansion—including a recruitment drive concentrated on onboarding top cybersecurity partners and talent in Rhode Island.
Utilidata will make additional announcements related to new deployments of its core AdaptiVolt™ product, new strategic partnerships, new hires, and new patents in the coming months.
