McAfee and SUBNET Solutions Inc. say they have joined together to offer a unified substation security solution to address the growing cybersecurity needs for electric utility substation integration and automation systems.

The companies' combined solution includes the SUBNET SubSTATION Server and SUBNET PowerSYSTEM Center with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, Intrusion Prevention Systems, McAfee Deep Command and McAfee Application Control.

SUBNET SubSTATION Server provides utilities with a multi-vendor substation gateway solution that is able to interface with substation vendors' intelligent electronic devices (IEDs), according to the companies. Integrating McAfee Application Control and Network Intrusion Prevention with SubSTATION Server creates a comprehensive solution that can integrate, automate and secure almost any utility's IED-based substations without requiring upgrades or replacement of existing substation IEDs, the companies add.

"To protect the complexity and diversity of electrical power delivery systems, a strong partnership is necessary between the equipment manufacturer and the security vendor to increase security while ensuring the safety and reliability of the systems," says David Hatchell, director of industrial control systems and energy at McAfee. “We are pleased to be working with SUBNET to bring an advanced security solution to the substation automation industry.”
