As more devices are constantly being added to networks in the IIoT, the security of these devices is of paramount concern to asset owners. It is acknowledged throughout the industry that adopting the best practice approach to security gives asset owners the best chance of protecting their network from those with malicious intent.

 

Moxa´s new firmware, called Turbo Pack 3, is not only compliant with the IEC 62443-4-2 level 2 cyber security standard, but also supports other security management features, such as MAC Address and RADIUS authentication to prevent from unauthorized access, known security leaks and unknown attacks. At present, Moxa’s EDS-G500E and EDS-518E/528E DIN-rail switches support Turbo Pack 3, and all of Moxa’s industrial Ethernet switches will support the new firmware by 2017. 

Increased Device-Level Security

According to an ICS-CERT report, cyber attacks on the critical manufacturing sector increased by 50 % from 2014 to 2015. The report noted that a lack of proper access management and network probing are among the most common network vulnerabilities. One of the key mechanisms to ensure a safe and reliable network is to strengthen device-level security. Turbo Pack 3 ensures Moxa’s switches comply with the IEC 62443-4-2 level 2 standard, which provides technical security requirements and guidelines for network device suppliers and engineers. Moreover, the new firmware upgrade supports MAC authentication bypass via RADIUS server, and also fixes certain security vulnerabilities to protect the switches from malicious intrusion.

Ensure Network Availability

The firmware upgrade also supports enhancements in redundancy technologies. With these new functionalities, Moxa’s switches are able to enable higher network availability and reliability, which is crucial for mission-critical applications.

Right in the Middle of Factory Automation

Moxa´s industrial networking solutions for factory automation, such as switches that support multiple industrial protocols for device management, ensure the interoperability and enable the connection of legacy bus systems to modern network infrastructures. Advanced data acquisition and processing solutions support the interconnectedness of IIoT and Industry 4.0 environments. And where there are no wires possible wireless communication fills the gap. All of Moxa´s solutions promote network availability, and they are backed by comprehensive cyber security features.
