In our rapidly evolving world, the electricity industry is shifting towards digitalization, decarbonization and decentralization. The introduction of new actors and technologies to the grid, along with constant updates, upgrades, and redesigns can pose significant risks.
Implementing these changes can introduce faults and disruptions or complete operational halts, which can result in substantial losses.
IEC has developed a dynamic platform for emulating, simulating, and validating updates and operational events for critical infrastructures, in a near-real-time safe environment before deployment.
With Zone™ you can run endless operational events and cyber scenarios, including vulnerability scanning and test the impact of planned changes without endangering the operational process.
Zone™ is a proprietary patented technology, offering unique and unparalleled capabilities.
Zone™ replicates an identical digital model of any critical infrastructure, fast and effectively and enables a dynamic simulation of operational events and cyber attacks
Capable of running cyber attacks on the digital model to validate the system’s cyber sturdiness
Developed by engineers from IEC based on our stakeholder’s understanding and field-proven solutions
