GRIDview utilizes Multi Factor Authenication.
Behind the Firewall Technology
There is never a need to open a port in the firewall or make any special network configuration as all communications are outbound. No incoming traffic.
We maintain the latest service packs and upgrades on our servers.
GRIDlink Firewall for Protection Inside the Network
All GRIDlinks have a fully configurable onboard firewall that can shut down all incoming ports including FTP and Telnet through initial configuration or with a command from GRIDview. This adds an extra level of security from threats originating inside the corporate network.
GRIDview Cyber Security Pen Test
GRIDview has successfully undergone full cyber security penetration testing by Cylance and Deloitte Hong Kong for its production servers.
256 Bit Encription
GRIDlink has a hard coded unique serial number in its firmware which is used on the GRIDview server to authenticate. Every time the GRIDlink client exchanges data with either server the hashed serial number is validated to a 256 bit encryption key using port 443 (SSL).
In accordance with the OpenADR Alliance requirements, GRIDlink utilizes Kyrio Certs to communicate to the Utility’s Demand Response Server (VTN).
