For this large Western U.S. electric utility, their IT team was under a tremendous amount of pressure. Not only did they need to ensure that GOOSE message transmissions remained within the acceptable latency range for safety and compliance, they also needed to maintain NERC-CIP security compliance. Failure in doing so could have resulted in fines of up to a million dollars per day per violation. To address these critical challenges and avoid costly penalties, the electric utility's IT team turned to NETSCOUT for a solution.
