IT security is growing in importance with the increase in Ethernet-based networking through to the field level. After all, the risks of potential cyber attacks in an automated system are much greater than attacks on office networks – and in the worst case, they can threaten both people and the environment.
In response, we offer a solution – in the form of Defense in Depth – that provides end-to-end and multi-level protection against both external and internal attacks. Network security includes checking all interfaces, like those between office and plant networks, and checking remote accesses to the Internet. It may take the form of a firewall or the creation of a protected secure zone (a “demilitarized zone,” or DMZ).

Data interception and theft
Denial of service and distributed denial of service attacks
