Cybersecurity and functional monitoring for substations
Detect cyber attacks promptly
The Intrusion Detection System (IDS) StationGuard monitors Ethernet networks in substations and identifies suspicious behavior, prohibited actions, and malfunctions on the IEC 61850 station or process bus.
With this combination of cybersecurity and functional monitoring, not only can new threats and as yet unknown attack scenarios be identified, but different kinds of malfunctions in the substation automation system too.
