RAD's SecFlow Named Top Cybersecurity Product in Fierce Innovation Awards: Energy Edition Competition

RAD’s SecFlow ruggedized Ethernet switch/router provides resilient, managed cybersecurity controls specifically designed to address the needs and vulnerabilities of power utilities. NERC-CIP compliant and IEC 61850-certified, SecFlow multi-functional devices combine communications and critical-asset protection to enable SCADA, Ethernet and IP security in remote substations. SecFlow uses deep packet inspection, encryption and a distributed service-aware firewall to secure and monitor all industrial protocol commands between RTUs, control stations or HMIs to verify authenticity and validity.

Winners of the Fierce Innovation Awards: Energy Edition were selected by a panel of judges from companies such as Pacific Gas and Electric, San Diego Gas & Electric, Portland General Electric, CenterPoint Energy, Duke Energy, Florida Power & Light, and Commonwealth Edison. Products were evaluated based on technology innovation, financial impact, market validation, ability to integrate into existing network environments, end-user customer experience, and overall level of innovation.

“Critical networks have unique security demands that require both inventiveness and expertise in the type of applications and services that they run,” noted Ulik Broida, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at RAD. “This is precisely why we have implemented a defense-in-depth approach in designing SecFlow and equipping it with an all-threat protection toolkit, and are pleased that the judges recognized this in evaluating our innovation.”

SecFlow is part of RAD’s comprehensive Service Assured Networking solution, which delivers mission-critical reliability, smooth-migration to NGN communications and robust security.
