Public Utilities’ Operational Assurance Needs

From the power grid that keeps your electricity and heat on to the water treatment plant that keeps your faucet flowing, critical infrastructure plays a vital role in the daily lives of every American. As such, a successful interruption of key critical infrastructure systems could have alarming, far-reaching, and long-lasting consequences.

The growing threats to supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control systems – the machines designed to gather, monitor, and process real-time data to keep key utilities running smoothly – are cause for particular concern. Think about it. If the SCADA systems running an American city’s power grid or managing its water treatment go down as the result of a cyberattack or failure, even for just a few hours, what then? The impact of downtime or interference with these mission critical assets would be devastating. Compounding the potential for such events is the fact that many rely on older, outdated, and unpatched software and hardware, leaving them unnecessarily exposed to infiltration and exploitation.

How Acronis SCS Provides the Answers

Acronis SCS provides user-friendly, affordable, secure, and resilient backup and disaster recovery software to organizations responsible for keeping America’s critical infrastructure operational. Our hardened solution, Acronis SCS Cyber Backup 12.5 Hardened Edition, is specifically tailored to meet the needs of sensitive environments, like water and power plant SCADA systems. It is the only full-disk image backup and disaster recovery point solution certified by the Department of Defense Approved Products List (DoDIN APL), and is also FIPS 140-2 validated and Common Criteria certified under server and agent protection profiles. This game-changing product – designed for ‘no internet,’ air gapped networks – minimizes downtime for mission critical assets in the event of cyberattack, human error, or hardware failure. With our hardened backup, users can immediately restore an image of a working version of a device and capture reliable backups prior to applying system security updates and patches. The software supports both legacy and modern systems, as well as proprietary and non-proprietary applications.

For non-hardened environments, users can enjoy the same level of operational assurance with Acronis SCS Cyber Backup 12.5. Both software solutions cover servers, virtual machines, applications, and edge devices, with the flexibility to recover to dissimilar environments, including physical to cloud, virtual to physical, and any combination thereof. In addition, both of our backup and disaster recovery software solutions employ Active Protection, an advanced AI-based technology that automatically detects and stops ransomware attacks and other malware incursions like cryptojackers in their tracks, while simultaneously and immediately restoring any encrypted files from your latest backup.
