Segmentation Alternatives for Campus
Networks are Complex and Costly
Connecting modern and legacy energy systems (including substations, valve vaults, PLCs, RTUs, and more) is crucial to maximize operational efficiency through better data and automation. However, energy organizations often have highly distributed remote sites in sometimes extreme environments, where connectivity options are limited. Deploying secure connectivity and managing the network for each of those remote sites is significantly costly and complex.
The lack of good solutions forces organizations
to deal with issues such as:
Critical up-time and bandwidth issues with legacy communications such as expensive microwave radio
Reduced security due to lack of segmentation and native encryption
Providing secure mobile connectivity for technicians on the road and segmented access for vendors
Traditional IT solutions are not the answer. Technologies such as firewalls, VPNs, ACLs, and VLANs were not designed for energy environments. They require significant time and expertise to deploy and manage, yet still remain vulnerable to breach due to insufficient security and segmentation.
We have a better solution that solves these challenges.
Simple, Secure, and Segmented
We deliver peer-to-peer encrypted networks that make it simple to connect and micro-segment energy systems across a highly distributed environment.
With a simple plug-and-play deployment model, you can now eliminate the many complex and time-consuming steps required to deploy and manage firewalls and VPNs. Reduce connectivity costs, increase security, improve network up-time, and future proof your energy networks for additional IoT elements such as IP cameras for example.
Easily isolate and segment ICS/SCADA off the corporate network
Upgrade Legacy Communications
Easily deploy inexpensive and secure cellular connectivity using a public APN
Secure VPN-Less Access
Reduce costly travel with network access from anywhere, anytime
Simple and Fast Deployment
Most customers will deploy hardware such as the HIPswitch 250 at remote sites in order to cloak and segment energy systems. The HIPswitch 250 features dual cellular modems, so they can now failover to and between different cellular providers if the wired WAN connection fails, improving availability and up-time.
The HIPrelay is the world’s first identity-based router that connects systems and buildings across separate networks, and can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud.The Conductor is the orchestration engine that manages policy for all distributed HIP Services (HIPswitches, HIPservers, and HIPclients), delivering simple control of the network.
The Conductor Delivers Simple and
Centralized Network Control
Eliminate the complex and manual configurations associated with traditional IT solutions through simple point-and-click policy orchestration. Create, deploy, and disconnect overlay networks in seconds, with little to no change to existing network infrastructure.
Policy Orchestration That’s Point-and-Click Simple
Easily create isolated network segments and configure policy using the radio buttons. This simple process replaces the multiple steps of security and network configurations (using network addresses, ports, certificates, ACLs, and VLANs, and more) typically required by IT staff.
Verify Overlay Network Configuration and Compliance Quickly and Easily
The Visual Trust Map allows you to immediately validate communication policy between protected machines, as well as their HIP Services. With greater control of your network, showing segmentation for regulatory compliance reporting and security audits becomes quick and easy.
