Wiznucleus Collaborates with Microsoft and Develops Advanced and more Efficient Critical Infrastructure Cyber Security Software Solutions for NERC-CIP Compliance Management & Risk Assessment

Wiznucleus, Inc. (www.wiznucleus.com), a leading independent software vendor (ISV) of cyber security risk and compliance management software today announced that it will collaborate with Microsoft as an independent software vendor (ISV) to create best-of-breed compliance management solutions for the Energy & Utilities Industry. Through its commitment to the Microsoft Smart Energy Reference Architecture (SERA), Wiznucleus has successfully designed and developed advanced and intuitive software for tracking complex cyber security compliance requirements in nuclear power plants, distributed control systems (DCS), power generation plants, and utilities.

The Wiznucleus solutions are designed to drastically reduce the overhead associated with managing and tracking cyber security compliance requirements, such as NERC CIP, NEI 08-09/NEI 10-09/10 CFR 73, to protect North America’s critical infrastructure, including nuclear power plants, electric utilities, control systems, and Smart Grid. The ability to configure the latest standards, to manage and track compliance in an automated manner is the key to reducing the cost and complexity burden involved in managing standards such as NERC CIP 002-009 in power plants and utilities.

Wiznucleus software products are based on Microsoft technology frameworks and are built ground-up for managing the life-cycle of regulatory compliance. Wiznucleus’ integrated knowledge management, domain-specific best practice methodology, and automation algorithm support our customers in meeting the latest standards and practice requirements. By leveraging the Microsoft development platform, Wiznucleus has been able to deliver proven compliance management solutions and reduce overhead in nuclear power plants and utilities.

“Utility industry solutions from Microsoft and partners such as Wiznucleus are based on the world’s most cost-effective, functionally rich IT platform that helps create a more secure computing experience,” said Jon C. Arnold, managing director, Worldwide Power & Utilities Industry, Microsoft. “By using Wiznucleus solutions to address industry cyber security requirements, utilities will be able to implement faster and more reliably than they otherwise could with solutions offered by competitors.”

Satish Talekar, Chief Technology Officer of Wiznucleus, said, “Achieving risk assessment and compliance management in the critical infrastructure such as power plants and utilities is a complex and heavy overhead task. Our decision to base our development utilizing the Microsoft platform has enabled us to successfully deliver cost effective and easy-to-use software, and deploy them in record time at our utilities customer sites. Our products are aligned with Microsoft’s Smart Energy Reference Architecture, and we intend to continue to help evolve and align our platform with the Microsoft architecture.”

Steve Hamburg, CEO of Encari, a leading NERC CIP compliance consultancy firm headquartered in Chicago said, “Wiznucleus’ NERC-WIZ product effectively addresses many of the compliance requirements prescribed in the NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection Reliability Standards, which are directed towards generation and transmission electric utilities. Additionally, the NERC-WIZ product is the most intuitive, easy-to-use and cost-effective NERC CIP compliance management solution I have worked with that addresses the full NERC CIP compliance life-cycle.”
