Secure Utility Corporation of America launched service of its secure private network in North America. The solution removes life safety, physical security, and operating technologies from the public internet, while providing remote connectivity for monitoring and managing these critical systems.
The comprehensive, multi-layered service is an answer to the growing threat of malware and cyber-criminal access to IoT devices and critical systems operating on traditional IT networks. Offered as a monthly service, Secure Utility creates an affordable alternative to on-premise firewalls and a lower cost replacement to public telephone networks for fire alarm panels.
The service’s multi-layered defense delivers a true, secure private network with priority LTE connection, segregated on the back end of most mobile carrier networks — not the public internet. Remote connection to the Secure Private Network is fortified by a bank-grade firewall, updated in real time to defend against upstream and downstream threats.
The Secure Utility service is available through authorized integrators and sold in a variety of data plans to support the number and type of connected systems at the client’s facility. They also offer options for system health monitoring, automatic failover, voice service, and multi-carrier coverage.
“We are excited by the level of interest we see in the marketplace,” said Shelby Beard, Secure Utility vice president. “Secure Utility places the integrator and end user in control of their internet exposure. The increasing threats of ransomware, malware, and well-financed hackers have surpassed the threshold for what is considered acceptable for many industries.”
Secure Utility has entered into strategic agreements with U.S. manufacturer representatives and telecommunication companies to expand their network of authorized integrators and provide ample carrier coverage across the United States. Secure Utility carrier coverage includes AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint.
