It is impossible to imagine modern production networks without IP-based Industrial Ethernet LANs. However, without ensuring sufficient IT security in industrial environments, networked manufacturing systems are vulnerable to attacks from both the outside and the inside. IT4A have been using mGuards since 2004.

Safeguarding Automation network systems

Industrial Ethernet is spreading as a standard not only across companies, but across entire supply chains. Creating highly integrated supply chains increasingly entails the networking of cross-company IT systems. This means that more and more network production systems must be effectively protected against attacks from both inside and outside. In the process, the investment in cross-network security has truly become an investment in successful business performance.
