Government Use Case
A Secure Operational Platform for Access to Government ICS
Federal, state and local government operations are heavily dependent on Industrial Control Systems (ICS). From municipality-owned water and power plants to federally owned dams to naval ships, they all rely on ICS. Critical infrastructure throughout all levels of government to DOD depend on ICS to function.
Many of these government assets and ICS are in very remote areas. Whether it’s on a Naval vessel at sea, at a remote Army facility or in a federally owned dam, being able to securely access these industrial controls is critical and highly valuable to government entities.
How Xona Meets These Challenges
The Xona zero-trust platform allows the control system interface, such as a HMI or SCADA application, to move with the user, making operations more efficient and reducing costs associated with manual processes.
Many of these ICS interfaces use antiquated, unpatched systems. Xona also reduces risk associated with access by providing better visibility and control through its zero-trust access platform.
In addition, Xona meets stringent government compliance objectives such as NIST 800-53, FIPS 140-2 and Risk Management Framework (RMF) by addressing key features such as multi-factor authentication (MFA), intermediate system for network and protocol isolation and session logging and recording.
Energy is fundamental and critical to our daily lives, and Industrial Control Systems are interwoven throughout the energy industry. Xona reduces risk and increases efficiency when it comes to remote access of those systems.
Oil & Gas
Oil and Gas relies on thousands of Industrial Control Systems, from upstream oil fields to midstream pipelines all the way to downstream delivery to power generation facilities. The Xona platform simplifies secure, remote access for oil and gas companies.
Modern manufacturing is largely automated, dependent upon Industrial Control Systems to more efficiently produce goods, from food to medicine to automobiles to faucets. Introducing Xona into operations provides better visibility and control of ICS through secure remote access.
Federal, state and local government operations are heavily dependent on Industrial Control Systems. Remote access to this critical infrastructure is highly valuable, and Xona’s platform provides that access while reducing risk and cost for our government.
