Energy management specialist Schneider Electric and McAfee, a part of Intel Security and wholly owned subsidiary of Intel Corp., have come together to provide cybersecurity solutions for the utility and critical infrastructure market.

According to the companies, the collaboration will enable Schneider customers to add tested and certified application whitelisting capabilities in the management of core offerings of water, oil and gas, electric networks, and transportation infrastructures.

The partnership, the companies add, will allow Schneider customers to combine whitelisting capabilities and change-control technology to help ensure that only trusted applications run on critical infrastructure systems. The companies note that customers will be able to monitor and manage changes to mitigate malicious or accidental system modifications, preventing execution of unauthorized code and many common malware on their systems.
