Project Funded by United States Department of Energy
ADDISON, TX – February 27, 2017 – N-Dimension Solutions, a market leading Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) with award winning solutions that protect smart energy networks and critical infrastructure from cyber threats, announced today that it has been selected by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) as one of the team members that will develop Project “React”. React is a tool that will rapidly detect cyber attacks and compromised utility systems, potentially benefiting more than 3,000 utilities in the United States. In addition to the NRECA, Milsoft Utility Solutions and NRTC are also part of the React Team.
N-Dimension developed and has been selling its N-Sentinel managed cybersecurity solutions for utilities in North America for more than two years. “Cybersecurity is a growing concern for utilities large and small,” said Tom Ayers, CEO N-Dimension Solutions. “We are honored to have been selected by the NRECA to partner in developing a next generation cybersecurity solution that addresses this critical need and will benefit the many co-ops across the country.”
The React project has been funded by a competitive grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. NRECA’s Business and Technology Strategies (BTS) unit will manage the program. The NRECA is the national service organization that represents over 900 not-for-profit, consumer-owned electric cooperative utilities, which deliver service to 42 million people in 47 states.
Attendees at TechAdvantage 2017 (February 26-March 1) are invited to stop by the N-Dimension exhibit, booth #1921 to learn more about project REACT. N-Dimension is also hosting a utility panel discussion on “Convergence of Physical and Cyber Security” at 9:15am, February 28th.
