Providing Visibility to your Industrial SCADA Virtualization Environment

With ever-present and growing security threats from both foreign and domestic sources, safeguarding utility networks and communication infrastructure has become paramount to protecting utility grids from hacking and providing uninterrupted delivery of services to consumers.  Recently, we’ve seen an influx in industrial customers from power utilities, oil & gas, to manufacturing looking to modernize their networks. Like many industries, industrial networks are looking to virtualize their environments to reduce hardware, infrastructure and facilitation costs as well as enabling better SCADA software integration into the existing IT environment.

Air Gapping: An Added Layer of Security for Cloud and Industrial Environments

Despite ever-increasing cybersecurity budgets, attackers continue to find ways around network defenses and are on track to cause over $6 trillion in damages annually by 2021. As cloud adoption continues to grow, attackers are taking advantage of new threat vectors and 84% of organizations say traditional security solutions don’t work against them. This is especially problematic in the industrial sector where cyber attacks aren’t just costly—they can be a matter of life and death. Ignoring cloud computing isn’t an option. The advantages of moving industrial processes to the cloud are just too beneficial to ignore.  Cloud environments and industrial networks need an additional layer of security to address vulnerabilities without sacrificing the cost efficiency, scalability, and flexibility of a modern architecture. Air gapping is the answer to this challenge.

DIN Rails: Versatility from telecom towers to industrial networks.

on 1/15/19 8:00 AM By | Jerry Dillard | 0 Comments | Network TAPs Industrial Ethernet
Picture this; it’s 4 in the morning, you’re still chewing the grounds from your second cup of instant coffee as you begin your ascent up a 150ft telecom tower. At the end of your 10-minute climb, you can start to get to work on some routine maintenance to keep the tower operational. You open the equipment enclosure, and what do you find?

How to enable efficient and secure Industrial Control Systems

The factory of the future is digital and networked.  The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 are a further optimization of processes and faster production cycles for production companies and critical infrastructures.  Industry 4.0 refers to the current trend of automation and data communication in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, cloud computing and cognitive computing.  The basic principle of Industry 4.0 is that by connecting machines, work pieces and systems; businesses are creating intelligent networks along the entire value chain that can control each other autonomously. In an Industry 4.0 factory, components and systems are able to gain self-awareness and become self-predictive, which will provide management with more insight on the status of the factory.
