The electrical, environmental and operational requirements of scada and control systems make IT-focused security solutions unsuitable for use in industrial networks.
As a result, the vast majority of these systems are operating with little or no protection against accidental or malicious cyber attacks. Even a single infected USB key can shut down an entire plant.
Available from IAC, the Hirschmann EAGLE Tofino line of security switches combines a rugged security appliance with a collection of software modules that together provide practical and effective industrial network security, which is simple to implement and does not require plant shutdowns.
You may not be attacked by a serious hacker, but conventional control networks are extremely vulnerable to simple day to day security issues.
Poor network segmentation, unprotected points of entry into the network, soft targets such as unpatched PCs and vulnerable PLCs, and human error can result in significant production losses and even safety issues.
The Tofino Industrial Security Solution is a distributed security solution that quickly and cost-effectively implements cyber security protection within your control network. Tofino is designed from the ground up with a rugged environment, staff skills and needs of industry in mind - it protects better and is easier to install than IT firewalls and other security products.
Tofino's flexible architecture allows you to create security zones - Zone Level Security - throughout your control network to protect critical system components. The Hirschmann EAGLE Tofino models can be incorporated into process control and scada systems to provide improved safety, network security and performance of industrial control systems.
Tofino can be installed and implemented in a live network with no special training and no pre-configuration. And best of all, it helps you avoid expensive down time and achieve optimal performance in your plant.
* No IT knowledge required.
* Enhanced security and safety - extend cyber security down into the control network.
* Simplified regulatory and standards compliance.
