The growing momentum of smart grid deployments is being fuelled by governments and utilities who are investing heavily to replace existing electrical grids with more advanced technologies. As the smart grid ecosystems become reality, security threats are increasing considerably and so is the need for robust security solutions in this market. These solutions need to protect electrical grids, advanced metering infrastructures, smart meters, customer information, data collection and control systems against malware and hackers that can seriously disrupt businesses, personal lives and even national security.
Smart grid security is an emerging market, but many of the traditional security measures currently used for wired and wireless communications like IPsec, SSL/TLS/DTLS, WiFi, ZigBee, LTE and WiMAX still apply.
Elliptic has a broad portfolio of proven and highly integrated solutions for the smart grid market. Elliptic’s offering includes data encryption, key management, certification management, storage encryption and digital rights management security solutions targeted at smart meters, collectors, networking equipment and utility operations.
