How Runecast Future-Proofs Energy & Utilities Companies

Energy & Utilities companies around the world rely on Runecast for helping the stability and security of their mission-critical operations. Runecast customers in the sector include Siemens Gas & Power, E.ON, Valero Energy, Oiltanking and others.

We feel your pain

We understand the challenges that the Energy & Utilities sector faces with increasing complexity and interconnectivity of critical infrastructure. The potential repercussions of successful cyberattacks in this sector can encompass a range of scenarios such as service interruptions, data breaches, compromised sensitive information, and the potential for widespread disruption of vital services.

Given the expansive and interconnectedness of energy and utilities networks, coupled with the critical infrastructure they support and the sensitive data they handle, this sector remains particularly vulnerable to malicious cyberattacks. The constant threat of cyber incidents poses a substantial risk to essential services, communication networks, and the privacy of customer data.

To address these challenges effectively, CISOs, CIOs, and their IT Security and Operations teams within the Energy & Utilities sector must adopt a comprehensive approach. This approach should encompass rigorous risk assessments, robust cybersecurity protocols, strict adherence to continuous regulatory compliance, ongoing training initiatives, and collaborative efforts to proactively tackle these cybersecurity challenges head-on.

"Security and risk management leaders continue to be asked to do more with less — facing more demand for service, fast-changing threat landscapes and insufficient technical talent."

And we have your remedy

And we have your remedy

Runecast is an enterprise platform for security compliance, operational efficiency, stability and uptime. In a single dashboard, it provides an out-of-the-box transparent view of your IT infrastructure, revealing not only configuration drift and vulnerabilities (including CVEs, VMSAs and CISA KEVs) but also vendor best practices alignment and security compliance audits and reporting.

Proving security compliance posture to customers is simple with Runecast’s customizable reporting. Automated security standards audits include CIS Benchmarks, NIST, DISA STIG, GDPR, ISO 27001, BSI IT-Grundschutz, KVKK, PCI DSS, VMware Security Configuration Guide and others. Runecast further helps to protect trade secrets by working securely on-premises and even offline (no data needs to leave your organization).

Fulfilling needs for increased efficiency and ensuring stable production, IT teams can reveal critical issues proactively and know exactly which issues to prioritize for security compliance, operational efficiency and uptime.

Reduce risk, ensure regulatory compliance, and optimize team efficiency

IT Security and Operations teams get one proactive platform to replace multiple reactive tools. Runecast automates proactive discovery of issues for AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes, VMware, Windows and Linux. Other helpful audits are also built-in, such as Best Practices for vSphere on Nutanix and both SAP HANA and Pure Storage on vSphere.

Best of all, Runecast deploys in minutes, is simple to use, and our customers report between 75-90% reduction in troubleshooting time due to Runecast revealing critical issues proactively and showing exactly which to prioritize (with remediation steps).
