Industrial Security Components
Industrial Security concept for remote networks
Security is paramount when constructing remote networks. Certain safety measures have to be taken when communicating over public, i.e. non-secure networks such as the Internet, in particular. Comprehensive protection is necessary to protect communication against espionage and manipulation as well as against unauthorized access to devices and plants. With the Industrial Security components, such as SCALANCE S, SCALANCE M, SOFTNET Security Client and Security CPs, remote access to IP-based networks is protected by means of additional firewalls and VPN tunnels.
Increasing use is being made of internet and mobile networks, such as GSM, UMTS or LTE, to connect to remote networks. An extensive range of security components is available to protect communication against espionage and manipulation, as well as against unauthorized access to devices and plants.
