MiCOM P40 Agile Cybersecurity & High Bandwidth Ethernet

GE announces the release of MiCOM P40 version 91 with enhanced cybersecurity, assisting utilities in their compliance with NERC CIP, NISTIR 7628 and EU NIS foundation norms.  Role-based access control for centralized authentication, authorization and account management is added, using the industry-standard Radius protocol.  Secure Syslog audit trail recording is now supported, for integration with security event management systems.
A new Ethernet module offers switchable PRP, HSR and RSTP redundant communications, with dual copper or fiber ports.  For larger substation schemes, up to 50 station bus nodes in an HSR ring are also now possible.
