Perch is a Community Defense Platform because it creates a community of water sector users, allowing users to share threat information and best practices with each other. Perch’s Security Operations Center (SOC) evaluates threats and notifies members so that they can take corrective action on validated malicious activity in a timely manner.
All members are encouraged to use Perch to automatically monitor their networks for threats. With a WaterISAC Pro membership, utilities can leverage WaterISAC's repository of threat intelligence data. This combination of Perch and WaterISAC data provides members with a comprehensive solution to mount their best defense from cyber threats:
1. Quality threat intelligence,
2. In interface that shows them what threats are detected in their networks and throughout the sector, and
3. A team of skilled Perch analysts working to further analyze and notify members when action is needed.
Of member utilities that have tried Perch, all have decided to formally implement the service.
