        DevonWay Announces New Cyber Security Response for Nuclear Power Plants

        San Francisco, CALIF. — DevonWay, Inc., the leader in enterprise-class SaaS-based solutions for the nuclear power industry, today announced the general availability of its cyber security offering, CyberWay™. This new product expands DevonWay’s commitment to supplying next-generation enterprise asset management solutions.

        CyberWay further establishes DevonWay’s leadership in assisting nuclear plants to standardize on practical compliance solutions for complex regulatory issues. Just as the firm’s ActionWay™ product supports systematic continuous improvement for coordinating Corrective Action Program (CAP) activities, CyberWay will assist cyber security program managers with an efficient approach to complying with 10 CFR 73.54 requirements, including:

        Extending the plant configuration to include support for critical digital assets and providing a fully attributed cyber-security Controls Library reflecting NEI 08-09 Rev.6 guidelines. Supplying Cyber Security Assessment Teams (CSATs) with a systematic assessment tool that uses plant CAP Condition Reports for escalating awareness gaps. Demonstrating active compliance and assisting with NRC Problem Identification and Resolution (PI&R) audit and reporting requirements.

        Discussing the new offering, Robert W. Felton, DevonWay President and CEO, said: “In today’s digital world, implementing new controls for digital assets throughout a nuclear power plant is a critical and complex task. Rather than add to that complexity with a typical enterprise-wide IT development project, plant CIOs are requesting that DevonWay configure an easy-to-use solution. We have collaborated with several of our respected customers to help ensure that CyberWay can be easily and quickly configured to meet the requirements of single-unit plants and fleets alike, even as the rules and regulations evolve.”

        Unlike most software providers, who maintain a rigid code base with brittle interfaces to third-party systems of record, DevonWay builds applications that anticipate change. DevonWay products are quick to deploy and modify, and they integrate easily with systems of record. In evaluating how DevonWay could best assist its customers, CTO Steve Johnson observed, “Traditional IT shops do their best work when specifications are clear and concise. That’s not the situation here. DevonWay has a track record of deploying systems into production at nuclear sites in just 100 days, and is unique in its ability to apply change as cyber security rules continue to evolve.”

        Speaking to the efficiencies that CyberWay provides, DevonWay Product Manager Bill Brady said, “After discussions and review with nuclear customers, we are confident that CyberWay can assist CSAT teams to begin their work in weeks, not months, and at a lower total cost of ownership than other options. We will be attending the NEI Cyber Security Implementation Workshop in Baltimore on January 25-26, where we will conduct software demonstrations and answer questions to help program managers assess their readiness for developing cyber security plans.”
