Every utility has a collection of technologies, processes, and people devoted to protecting its critical assets. The verification principle is devoted to understanding what makes up a utility’s current defenses and finding any gaps and vulnerabilities. Network Perception provides utilities with a uniform process for storing metadata that allows for consistent change management and ensures that the least privilege principle is correctly adopted. The three steps of a comprehensive network security verification program are:

  1. Build up your asset inventory
  2. Verify your network segmentation
  3. Verify your network access policy


The need for an easily understood and common language about a utility’s network segmentation and how critical assets are protected is vital. Network Perception provides such common language and represents the concept of criticality through its pioneering network topology visualization. Utilities can strengthen their network understanding and eliminates blind spots in three steps:

  1. Automatically generate a network topology map 
  2. Assess your vulnerability exposure 
  3. Ensure defense-in-depth strategy


Cybercriminals adapt and evolve their attacks much more rapidly than cybersecurity professionals can respond. It’s a real challenge, one that is made worse when utilities don’t assess and respond to risks and attacks in real-time. Network Perception’s ability to ingest configuration files automatically allows utilities to gain velocity by modeling their networks and visualizing their risks and vulnerabilities in three steps:

  1. Develop a continuous monitoring capability
  2. Automate your network change review process
  3. Build and train an incident response team
