Market Need

Recent cyber attacks against critical infrastructure have resulted in more than 10 companies halting operations, totalling 50 days of production loss. The main reason for premature shutdown is lack of situational awareness that enables operators to make more accurate decisions.


TwinSecure is an autonomous decision support system software powered by a digital twin model for the protected system. Performing real-time threat situational awareness, it provides the best set of actions in any given situation. The proposed actions are explained in a way that allows the decision maker to understand the potential safety, financial and environmental impact of every action.

The solution covers cyber and physical failure threats, such as natural disasters. TwinSecure supports safe and resilient critical infrastructure operation, with reduced downtime, fewer financial and environmental losses, and minimal disruption to public services.
