Secure and Compliant Cloud for Utilities

Overview

The Utilities industry is undergoing a revolution fueled by technological advancements, lower energy intensity, more environmental consciousness, and changing customer expectations. A Utility system's reliability and resiliency have also been tested by unpredictable weather events, the unpredictable geopolitical situation, as well as cyberattacks on critical infrastructure. The challenging tasks of boosting renewable energy, ensuring reliability and resilience, and protecting data while minimizing costs still needs to be accomplished.

Electricity, gas, and water providers must create a comprehensive digital strategy that incorporates robust infrastructure, governance, and cybersecurity at its core as they take strides towards a "3D" transformation: decarbonization, digitalization, and decentralization.

Microland’s ‘Secure & Compliant Cloud’ offering is purpose-built for Utilities with AIOps-driven Cloud management, cybersecurity and compliance controls that ensure seamless and secure operations.
