Protect the Power Industry

For over 25 years, Verve has protected the reliability and security of the power grid: generation, transmission and distribution. From Verve’s founding as a controls integrator to the past dozen years as a cyber security partner, our commitment to protecting our power remains foremost in our mission.

The power industry faces a range of complex security challenges:

  • An increasing threat from foreign actors
  • Regulatory requirements under NERC CIP
  • Distributed, multi-vendor control systems 
  • Challenging network architectures and varied access
  • Continuous pressure on cost and resources
  • Sensitive systems that require 5 9’s of uptime and limited windows for systems management
  • Lack of knowledgeable resources to secure and maintain systems over time

Verve built the Verve Security Center product and services with direct feedback from power customers to address these challenges. The Verve Security Center provides turnkey compliance for NERC CIP cyber security requirements while also enabling more advanced security functionality as organizations seek a broader security capability beyond their Medium & High impact assets.

Our dedicated team of ICS practitioners expands our power clients’ resources with deep knowledge across security and control systems.

Our clients see us as a partner in their cyber security journey and we welcome their trust in us.

Identify

Deep & Wide Asset & Risk Visibility

  • See deep into OT/ICS networks to with no hardware or traffic to capture
  • Rich asset details from patch and vulnerability status to dormant users, configurations, and insecure network connections
  • Develop 360-degree risk scores to help prioritize risks

Protect

Integrated Remediation Actions

  • Efficient Patch, vulnerability, configuration, user/account, and software management from single console
  • Integrate all protection elements (AV, application whitelisting, firewalls, etc.) to monitor full defense posture
  • Provide insight and direction for network segmentation

Detect

Detect Changes, Threats and Potential Operational Issues

  • OT/ICS change management for compliance, reliability and security
  • Advanced SIEM brings together endpoint, network, and behavior data into advanced machine learning platform
  • Integrated OT/ICS process alarms for single pane of glass for security and reliability

Respond

Speed Response Times with Integrated Actionability

  • Common database for all security application enables faster root cause analysis
  • Integrated actions enable rapid response from the same platform
  • Think global: act local ensures scaled analysis and local OT-control over responses

Recover

Reduce the Cost of Incidents with Rapid Recovery

  • Real time confirmation of backups on critical systems
  • Backup embedded OT & network device configurations to ensure recovery is in hours or days not weeks or months

Jon Shadduck, Ameren

Our Customer Success

“If we bought all of the separate solutions for cyber that each OEM vendor offers, it would be near impossible to manage all of the different tools and implementation strategies.”

Manager, Real-time Systems @ Large Generation Utility

Our Customer Success

“Once Verve detailed their configuration and plan I had full confidence that we wouldn’t cause any control system issues. We are even connected to the proprietary Emerson DeltaV switches.”
