The Energy Industry
The energy industry is continuing to be a compelling target for hackers who are capitalizing on the vulnerabilities found throughout the industry’s large attack surface. In order to minimize cyber attacks and thrive in the coming years, energy companies are starting to deploy network monitoring solutions to enhance security, visibility and compliance.
With increased technology usage, we see a bigger threat to the national electricity grid. It is more vulnerable to cyber threats and can have a major impact on the economy.

How It All Works Together
The energy sector has been perceived as being on top of maturing their cyber security capabilities, but studies have shown these companies are still lacking network monitoring, detection, protection and security management capabilities. Whether it’s your green data center, customer service portal or a worldwide exploration network including remote and lights-out facilities, your energy network needs to operate at top efficiency at all times – on a limited budget.
The energy sector has made significant improvements in securing their slice of the nation's critical infrastructure, but broader adoption of security best practices still lacks.
