A new range of zone level security switches that protect control systems against network problems and cyber threats has been introduced by Belden Australia .

The Hirschmann EAGLE Tofino line of security switches combines a tough security appliance with a collection of software modules, together providing practical and effective industrial network security. These security switches are simple to implement and do not require plant shutdowns.

The range of security switches is particularly suitable for use by the process control and SCADA industries, providing improved safety, network security and performance of industrial control systems.

Considerable production losses and even safety issues can be a result of poor network segmentation, unprotected points of entry into the network, "soft" targets such as unpatched PCs and vulnerable PLCs, and human error.

The EAGLE Tofino industrial security switch solution is a distributed security solution that implements cyber security protection within control networks quickly and cost-effectively. Its flexible architecture allows users to create security zones throughout a control network to protect critical system components.

The new range of security switches from Belden can help to meet and exceed NERC CIP requirements and ANSI/ISA-99 standards. Importantly, they can also help to avoid expensive downtime and achieve optimal performance in the plant.

Key benefits include:

  • Ability to configure and manage security for an entire control network from one location 
  • A VPN system that is easy to deploy and does not risk industrial processes 
  • No IT knowledge required 
  • Simplified regulatory and standards compliance
These security switches can be used in the following applications:
  • Process control
  • SCADA systems
  • Discrete control
  • Oil and gas custody transfer
  • Safety instrumentation systems
  • Managing PLC programming stations
  • Display-only HMI panels
  • Partner access to telemetry data
