Nexus Controls Multi-Year Service Agreement Solves Budget Problem
Industry: Oil & Gas
Application: Petroleum Refining
A primary oil refining and electric power generation provider in Japan needed a solution to meet increased cybersecurity requirements for the upcoming Olympics. Unfortunately, they did not have the budget to make the necessary updates in the current fiscal year. They were also struggling with gaps in their newer workers’ knowledge of their control system.
Nexus Controls put together a 5-year service agreement with a custom payment plan, allowing this customer to overcome their budget constraints and move forward on the project within the timeframe required for the Olympics.
Nexus OTArmor™ and CAP validated patching program will keep their operation protected with the latest cybersecurity technology. Nexus Controls will also provide quarterly site visits to ensure this customer’s system is being properly maintained and help build important competencies in their next generation of workers.
With this solution, Nexus Controls enabled this customer to meet their primary goal of achieving the desired cybersecurity requirements in time for the Olympics. Additionally, we are providing them with peace of mind through regular site visits, quality reports, knowledge building, and an improved cyber security posture that will minimize unplanned outages, all at an affordable and predictable price per quarter.
