C3, LLC Launches C3 Grid Cybersecurity Analytics
Jun 10 14
C3, LLC announced the release of C3 Grid Cybersecurity Analytics, the newest solution in the company’s family of proven smart grid analytics software applications. C3 Grid Cybersecurity Analytics provides utility cybersecurity teams with advanced diagnostics and predictive tools to identify, monitor, and reduce the risks of grid cybersecurity vulnerabilities. The company Grid Cybersecurity Analytics provides both a broad-based and granular view of the normal operating state of the grid network, establishing a baseline of communication traffic levels, individual asset activity, and interactions between assets. In near-real time, the solution clearly identifies deviations from the baseline, such as unusually high or low network communications or unexpected patterns of traffic. Intelligent alerts warn cybersecurity teams of questionable activity for physical field-based investigation, IT team diagnosis and response, or other follow-up. Advanced analytics detect potential security issues across hardware types, data sources, and protocols, including AMI meters, grid sensors, application data logs, SCADA/ICCP systems, and WAN/LAN systems. The company Grid Cybersecurity Analytics is a next-generation approach for identifying, mitigating, and managing security risks. The application identifies specific threats such as SCADA data or command message manipulation, improper authentication or access control, or unexpected hardware or software configuration changes and provides risk mitigation recommendations. The solution also helps utility organizations to develop strategies and plans that improve the coordination of threat responses and optimize the long-term handling of security issues. The solution uses advanced machine-learning algorithms and anomaly detection techniques to identify and assess potential threats to the grid network. By analyzing large volumes of disparate data from across the network, the solution rapidly identifies emerging threats. The machine-learning algorithms use this data to evolve automatically over time, so that utilities can continuously adapt to evolving cyber threats. The company Grid Cybersecurity Analytics is built on the C3 Energy Analytics Engine, a robust data integration and analytics platform that federates data at processing rates of up to 6.5 billion records an hour – in a fully provisioned, hosted, secure, private, cloud-scale analytic infrastructure. The C3 Energy Analytics Engine enables petabyte-scale grid data analysis that leverages the capabilities of both modern and legacy information systems to aggregate all relevant historical and operational data into a common, cloud-scale utility data image.
