Tantalus, a provider of smart grid communication systems, has entered into a strategic partnership with N-Dimension Solutions Inc., a provider of cybersecurity solutions. Through the partnership, N-Dimension will provide Tantalus' TUNet (the Tantalus Utility Network) communications system the ability to monitor suspicious activity as it happens.

N-Dimension will provide Tantalus with cybersecurity solutions that address threats while helping Tantalus' customers meet their compliance requirements. With this new offering, Tantalus says it will enable utilities to monitor threats against remote field operations, AMI collection points, substations and control centers.

"Cybersecurity is still one of the biggest concerns for utilities, and it's something we take very seriously,” says Eric Murray, president and CEO of Tantalus. “N-Dimension has a strong track record of protecting against grid vulnerabilities, and we look forward to offering their award-winning solution to our utility customers.”

The newly established security monitoring solution will be available as an add-on to the TUNet communications system for both existing and prospective Tantalus customers.
