From assets in the field to the digital solutions that ensure your system’s reliability and resiliency, Fortress provides end-to-end security for our nation’s most critical infrastructure.
Safeguarding Critical Power Infrastructure
Of all the critical infrastructures that modern life depends on, it's energy that powers the rest.
With increased digitization and use of third-party tools and solutions, energy infrastructure is getting more complex by the day. And by definition, everything that delivers power — i.e., the electric grid — is interconnected. This means that a single point of security breach has the potential to cascade to many others. With Fortress, you can rest assured that our security coverage extends to all of your IT and OT assets, spanning all third-party and supply chain components in addition to your operational systems.
What Fortress Covers
What your organization uses to run your energy operations. This includes your IT/OT solutions, including your SCADA systems and all digital/analytical tools used in your control room, as well as holistic coverage for business vulnerability areas like reporting systems and servers.
What your organization incorporates into your energy infrastructure. This includes security for all connected products, components, chips, and their manufacturers of origin. As the grid becomes more digitized and communications protocols proliferate, Fortress covers the full spectrum of supply chain risk factors and the communications backhaul associated with it.
What your organization needs to stay on top of. This includes adherence to today’s compliance requirements and keeping abreast of pending regulations from a liability standpoint. This also includes staying one step ahead of energy-specific threats and managing them before they become actual issues.

As an energy company, the holistic management of internal operational risk factors has a direct impact on system reliability, resiliency and affordability.

Fortress Has You Covered
So Your Customers Always Have Power
For many utilities, operations and maintenance budgets are limited. Fortress' solution is 80% capital expenditure based. This flexibility will enable our customers to apply our solution more effectively to the assets that need it the most - critical infrastructure.
While most of Fortress' customers are investor owned utilities (IOUs), we have made a concerted effort to engage with municipal and rural electric utilities and provide solutions that fit their budget and their risk profiles. Security and compliance is the responsibility of all entities on the Bulk Electric System.
Fortress prides itself on being engaged in the problem solving business. By actively participating in the North American Transmission Forum, NERC's Supply Chain Security Working Group and National Telecom and Information Administration, Fortress' solutions are designed to exceed industry practices which enable our customers to make decisions with up-to-date analysis of current industry initiatives and policies.
