Build Secure Network Infrastructure without Compromising Production Efficiency

While companies are tapping into the opportunities that the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has to offer, digitalization has become a key initiative for industries. Digitalization has allowed the industrial control system (ICS) landscape to develop quickly in recent years. Originally, ICS networks were physically isolated and almost immune to cyberattacks. However, recently, there has been a rise in the sophistication of cyber attacks, which has prompted everyone from IT to OT personnel to produce solutions that enhance industrial network security. Thus, understanding network security requirements will help companies mitigate cybersecurity risks. Read on to learn more.

Debunk Industrial Cybersecurity Myths

There are some myths about industrial cybersecurity that may put your facilities and businesses at risk. Watch the video to learn how to debunk the myths and build defense-in-depth security for your industrial networks to ensure continuous operations and the safety of personnel.

Vast Differences Between IT and OT


No. 1 Priority




Data integrity is key

Control processes cannot tolerate downtime

Protection Target

Windows computers, servers

Industrial legacy devices, barcode readers

Environmental Conditions


Extreme temperatures, vibrations and shocks

  • Protect Factory Networks
  • Secure Remote Access

Customer: Oil & Gas Service Company


High-capacity oil and gas pipelines are very volatile and often span thousands of kilometers. The pump stations along the pipeline are equipped with analyzers and PLCs. The company found it challenging to maintain a secure and stable network connection between the stations and the remote SCADA system because the PLCs and I/O devices did not have any security features.

Customer: Automotive Parts Plant


An automotive parts plant manager planned to digitalize their production processes. The field devices run on the EtherNet/IP protocol for control unification and data acquisition. As the network infrastructure in this plant is on a large scale, it is very difficult for the plant manager to monitor all devices and visualize the network topologies. In addition, to realize digitization, all networks are interconnected from the field site all the way to the ERP and even to the cloud. It is essential to have good cybersecurity measures to allow this transformation to occur, without compromising production efficiency.

Customer: CNC Machine Builder


Maximizing network uptime enhances machine productivity. Therefore, a leading manufacturer of mechanical power presses needed to provide a timelier and more efficient after-sales service in order to ensure improved machine performance and effective troubleshooting. At first, the machine builder adopted Windows-based Remote Desktop Control (RDC) technology, but security risks and additional costs came at a high price. Furthermore, the Windows-based computer by itself is susceptible to security risks, and the possibility of attacks increases even more when the computer connects to the Internet.
