Securely Providing Access to Manufacturing Data

Security today is a necessary part of every manufacturing operation that expects to run smoothly, efficiently, safely, and profitably. But protecting the industrial environment is far from an easy job.

As production equipment and the systems that connect and control the manufacturing enterprise grow increasingly more complex and sophisticated, the measures needed to protect them become more critical as well. Fueling these developments in large part is the evolution of Ethernet technology from the office enterprise to the industrial environment. Once thought to be insufficiently robust and lacking in functionality, industrial Ethernet (standardized Ethernet communications over a hardened networking infrastructure) has advanced remarkably, becoming, in a few short years, the communications staple of manufacturing and production, of automation and control.
