Anterix Launches Cybersecurity Initiative as Part of Active Ecosystem Program
Tuesday, December 07, 2021 | Comments

Anterix announced the launch of the Anterix Security Collective, bringing together a team of 900 MHz private LTE cyber-physical solutions providers within the Anterix Active Ecosystem Program (AAEP).

The objective of the Anterix Security Collective is to foster sector-specific knowledge, solutions, and collaboration in response to growing cyber-physical security concerns for our nation's utilities.

Members of the Anterix Security Collective have been selected by Anterix and represent cyber-physical security companies that are well-positioned to enhance utility defenses in the context of 900 MHz private LTE networks. Each Anterix Security Collective member is committed to collaborating with utilities and within the collective to contribute toward finding and implementing comprehensive solutions. Anterix anticipates that the membership of the security collective will expand over time.

"Beyond deploying a private LTE network, utilities' operational technology (OT) security risks and needs differ greatly from traditional information technology (IT) customers of communications platforms in their security approaches and potential solution sets; finding the right partners in this highly complex area can be tough," said Anterix Chief Operating Officer Ryan Gerbrandt. "The AAEP is about helping customers capture the value of their private LTE networks, so we took on the hard work of identifying, vetting and engaging leading companies in the field to create an expert, collaborative resource to assist them in reaching their cyber and physical security goals as well."

Since its inception in May 2021, the Anterix Active Ecosystem Program has grown from 37 participating companies to more than 65; as a cyber and physical security branch of the AAEP, the Anterix Security Collective begins with six participants, some of which were already AAEP members: Mandiant, Onclave Networks, PacketViper, Q-Net Security, Qubitekk and Sierra Nevada Corporation.
