Segmentation Alternatives for Manufacturing
Systems are Complex and Costly
Connecting modern and legacy manufacturing systems, from factory machine controls to your supply chain, is crucial to maximize operational efficiency of your plants and overall operations. However, securely connecting and segmenting existing plants, employees and vendors, as well as cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, and 3D printing is significantly complex and costly.
The most pressing challenges manufacturing IT
leaders struggle with include:
Micro-segmenting machines across flat L2 or routed L3 networks and isolating them from the corporate network
Providing secure and segmented access for employees and vendors
Lack of security for vulnerable legacy equipment (Windows XP and more)
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 plant operation systems across separate locations and networks.
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 – without having to re-IP machines. Reduce costs, increase security, and improve network up-time with granular segmentation and centralized network control.
Easily isolate manufacturing systems off the corporate network
Better Data Collection
Secure cloud integration delivers improved business intelligence and predictive maintenance
VPN-Less Vendor Access
Segmented remote access that meets regulatory compliance requirements
Simple and Fast Deployment
Most customers will deploy hardware such as the HIPswitch 500 in order to cloak and segment manufacturing systems. Some are even moving towards granular segmentation of systems within the plant using the smaller, more cost-effective HIPswitch 75.
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.
Isolated and Segmented Connectivity In seconds
Eliminate network complexity and cost with a micro-segmentation solution that is point-and-click simple to deploy and manage
