The RUGGEDCOM RX1000 router is a utility grade cybersecurity appliance with integrated router, firewall, and VPN functionality. The RX1000 can be used to establish an electronic security perimeter around critical cyber assets found in control and automation systems, in order to prevent the disruption of operations by accidental or malicious acts. Ideally suited for electric power utilities, the industrial plant floor, and traffic control systems, the RX1000 is designed to protect and secure SCADA system networks connected directly to the Internet, or within a company’s Wide Area Network (WAN) or Local Area Network (LAN).
