Network Security within a Converged Plantwide Ethernet Architecture

April 9, 2019

The prevailing trend in Industrial Automation and Control System (IACS) networking is the convergence of technology, specifically IACS operational technology (OT) with information technology (IT). Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) helps to enable IACS network and security technology and OT-IT persona convergence through the use of standard Ethernet, Internet Protocol (IP), network services, security services, and EtherNet/IP. A reliable and secure converged plant-wide IACS architecture helps to enable the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

White Paper on Cyber Security Securing Video Surveillance Devices to Close Network Vulnerabilities

whitePaper | February 19, 2020

We live in an increasingly connected world, where more and more devices and systems are networked and shared with other systems. Convenience is a main driver behind this trend, as people have come to expect the ability to connect to and control devices and systems anywhere, anytime. However, there is a downside to the unprecedented level of convenience provided by the growing number of networked devices, namely increased security risk. Because each device is an endpoint for networks, they introduce the potential to become entry points for hackers and others with malicious intents. In fact, in many of the most high-profile data breaches that have occurred recently, hackers were able to access corporate networks through POS, HVAC and other networked systems that failed to provide an adequate level of security to prevent these types of breaches.
