Shielding oil & gas mining infrastructure from cyberattacks
San Antonio-based Howard Energy Partners, is an independent midstream energy company, owning and operating natural gas gathering and transportation pipelines, natural gas processing plants, rail facilities, liquid storage terminals, deep-water port facilities and other related midstream assets in Texas, Pennsylvania and Mexico. They offer an integrated platform of midstream infrastructure and services from wellhead to market to ensure the smooth running of oil and gas plants throughout the region.
Why Howard Energy Partners chose Asavie IoT Connect?
Howard Energy Partners (HEP) chose Asavie IoT Connect because of the simplified approach to securing and managing communications to oil and gas mining assets. By moving cellular devices and data traffic off the public internet, HEP devices and data are no longer in the line of fire of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), malware, and ransomware attacks.
Asavie IoT Connect allowed us to immediately take our estate of IoT monitoring devices out of the line of fire and simplify the process for performing security patch updates through a single command & control console. Now we won’t deploy any new kit without ensuring it is running on Asavie IoT Connect first.
