Improving Access to Power Distribution and SubstationsWritten by Admin | Read
Remote access and work–from–home solutions present unique challenges for power generation plants and substations controlled by ICS/SCADA networks. The threat from COVID-19 has changed the way that we work and is forcing many organizations to look for new ways for their operators and engineers to access their networks. Operators require around the clock access to SCADA systems spread across dozens of locations, and solutions have previously been cumbersome, time consuming to use, and costly to implement.
Solar and wind farms each have their own requirements when compared to traditional power generation plants. Sometimes spread over multiple square miles accessing these systems can be tedious and inefficient. Sub stations similarly are spread across the service area adding unnecessary travel time for technicians.
Red Trident Inc has created an affordable, secure, easy to deploy solution for access into IT and industrial control system (ICS) networks. This solution can be deployed in 4 – 6 hours, and you operators can have secure access to their assets within minutes of implementation.
RTAS solution also does the following:
- Limits employee exposure to dangerous situations
- Reduces to connectivity and operator log-in time compared to traditional RDP and jump host solutions
- Simplifies operator’s workflow
- Eliminates travel time to remote assets
- Set-up and management are painless
Security is baked into every level of the RTAS solution:
- Active Directory Integration (optional)
- Multi-Factor Authentication
- End-to-end Encryption
- User Segmentation by Policy
- Reduce your threat vector by eliminating jump hosts or other tools that punch holes through your firewall
The Red Trident and Dispel solution was created with your unique environments in mind. We understand your challenges, because we have all worked in these types of plants. Our solution is proven to work in IT and OT/ICS networks without causing disruptions or downtimes. No mater were you operate Red Trident has you covered.
You need a solution that enhances your capabilities, protects your workers and assets, and allows you to continue providing critical services to our country and economy. With the Red Trident solution, your OT/ICS teams can finally gain remote access without compromising the security of the ICS network.
