March 31, 2020 — ResilientGrid announced the launch of the COVID-19 Quick Start Remote Visualization program designed to extend a utility’s important operation center data to their remote employees. Employees will not only require secure access, but the systems that are designed for large video walls and workstations with multiple monitors must now be viewed on laptops. Utility IT networks may face increasing congestion as these employees access more tools at the same time. Due to licensing restrictions and other limitations, access to these tools may be limited or denied. Ultimately, companies may have to choose between their remote employees being able to access needed information and the health of their internal networks and compliance.
Recognizing that this is a problem we’ve already solved in the industry, ResilientGrid created
the Quick Start Remote Visualization program. It is designed to help utilities get through this gap period of widespread telework caused by the COVID-19 virus. The solution allows remote employees who need real-time awareness of the state of the grid to have it, while reducing the impacts to their IT networks and maintaining compliance with their licenses, in a way that is compliant with the industry’s complex cybersecurity regulations.
