Critical Infrastructure


Rising Trends in Commercial Property Theft

From bustling urban centers to quieter suburban districts, businesses of all sizes and industries find themselves entangled in a complex web of criminal activities that threaten their stability, profitability, and sense of security.

Leveraging Technology Over the Road

Transportation is an essential industry that enables goods and products to be transported efficiently and effectively across state and country lines. However, the transportation industry is not immune to security incidents.

Power, Elevated

Power is a lifeline, a critical component for connected products and devices in the physical security, access control and loT industries. We know how important it is to have in our everyday lives – and for the critical infrastructure, 24/7 power is a mandate for life safety.

Tackling Traffic Congestion

Tackling Traffic Congestion

One of the biggest drawbacks to living and working in modern cities is traffic congestion. It frustrates motorists. It increases the probability of accidents. It can slow response time for emergency services. And, it lowers air quality.

Protecting the Infrastructure

Protecting the Infrastructure

Robust, cybersecure technology solutions exist to protect facilities of all sizes and types but getting the most out of these solutions requires attention to the human element as well.

Vulnerability Risks Within the Energy Sector: Current Risks and Why Going Passwordless is Vital

Vulnerability Risks Within the Energy Sector: Current Risks and Why Going Passwordless is Vital

In recent years, we’ve seen an influx of cybersecurity threats compromising energy players, from Saudi Aramco in 2012 to the Colonial Pipeline last year, both of which have had the power to halt the flow of fuel to entire states and nations. In fact, a 2019 survey of global utilities by Siemens and the Ponemon Institute showed 56% of respondents reported that, in the last 12 months, their organization experienced at least one attack that resulted in the loss of private data or an outage.



Curbing Security Threats

Curbing Security Threats

Outside of physical attacks, when natural gases are extracted, transported, and refined, invisible gas leaks pose a quieter and consistently costly threat. In fact, the United States oil and natural gas industry loses approximately 1.4 to 2.3 percent of its natural gas from operations due to leaks, each year, according to the EPA.

The Future of Industrial Security

Utility and industrial enterprises need secure operations around-the-clock, knowing that any threat to the public’s safety can negatively impact revenues and tarnish their reputations.

Protecting Utilities

Federal, state and local agencies prioritize robust physical security plans for the nation’s electric power utilities. And they should. Any disruption in service from a primary provider could impact millions of people and businesses over a wide swath of the country.

Going the Distance

Networked devices have made all the difference in giving security and communication systems far more ubiquity, capabilities, and performance than anyone could have dreamed of when the IP was invented in 1974.
