Linköping – March 22, 2023 – International cybersecurity and medical imaging IT company Sectra (STO: SECT B) has received an order for its Sectra Managed Detection and Response monitoring solution from Jönköping Energi. Proactive monitoring of critical systems will enable risks and vulnerabilities to be detected before they become a threat to day-to-day operations and thus to the region’s electricity supply.

“We work every day to maintain a high level of delivery reliability in our electricity grid. We conduct maintenance and service on the grid to reduce the number of unplanned interruptions. By continually investing in the grid, we create the necessary conditions for continued growth in the region. Sectra’s monitoring solution will support us in detecting potential security risks, thereby helping to create greater security for our customers,” says Mats Palmérus, Deputy CEO at Jönköping Energi.

With Sectra Managed Detection and Response, Jönköping Energi will gain access to security analysts and advanced technical solutions for detecting security risks and cyberattacks. The service enables proactive security through technology to detect cyberattacks. This allows risks and potentially malicious activity to be detected at an early stage. The solution will thus play a central role in Jönköping Energi’s security capacity and its ability to ensure the integrity and availability of its critical systems. 

“Helping our customers to maintain continuous operations is an important task for Sectra since interruptions can have major consequences for society, which is reliant on electricity production. We look forward to taking on this assignment from Jönköping Energi and to working together to ensure the availability of the company’s critical systems,” says Magnus Skogberg, President Sectra Communications.

The contract with Sectra was signed in February 2023 and extends for four years. Visit Sectra’s website to read more about Sectra Managed Detection and Response
