High Complexity & Lack Of Visibility

Challenges for the operation of remotely controlled energy utilities

Substations and renewable energy resources are an easy target for cybercriminals. Safeguards are minimal. On-site personnel are rarely trained and authorized to look after the industrial control system. Communication happens within a blind spot of the central control room.

This makes it easy for cybercriminals to scout the infrastructure as part of reconnaissance, move laterally to other plants or cause direct damage.

Distribution and transmission system operators require a system that identifies and reports any suspicious behavior and changes within the industrial control system in substations and renewable energy resources.

360° Intrusion Detection System

Seamless Substation Level Monitoring

The Rhebo industrial communication monitoring with anomaly detection enables end-to-end monitoring of a distributed energy infrastructure.

Substation communication changes originating from cyberattacks, manipulation attempts, scans, lateral movements and technical error states are detected in real-time, assessed, documented and transmitted to the control room. Damage to substations and power plants can thus be effectively prevented, and attacks can be stopped from spreading to other sites or the control room.

Monitoring is performed at the individual sites via cost-efficient software sensors on existing edge devices or as hardware.

It All Starts With Visibility

With our audits we assess your ICS for risks and vulnerabilities.
