Simple and Secure Networking for Industrial IoT
Peer-to-peer connectivity and micro-segmentation for your industrial networks
What our Industrial Customers Experience
Connecting and Protecting Industrial IoT SystemsSecurely connecting devices such as vending machines, IP cameras, robotics, and a whole host of other systems and devices using traditional IT solutions has left network teams feeling ill-equipped and exposed. The time, expertise, and budget required to connect and integrate IIoT devices across separate enterprise, remote, and cloud infrastructures is impractical, yet still doesn’t prevent hacker reconnaissance and lateral attacks.
Flat L2 network creates availability issues
Different security and networking architectures for IT, virtual, and cloud
IP addressing issues and conflicts across the network
Inability to protect against horizontal L2-L4 network attacks
Lack of segmentation gives 3rd party vendors unfettered network access
People and Process
Limited staff, security, and network expertise
Traveling to remote sites is costly and inefficient
Fast, Simple, and Secure Industrial NetworksOur customers have eliminated the complexity, attack vectors, and costs associated with traditional IT solutions by adopting a purpose-built approach for IoT deployments that’s simpler and more secure. With IDN, you can deploy secure and micro-segmented networks in minutes, rather than days or weeks compared to traditional IT solutions. And even better, the cost is a fraction of those alternatives. Now you can easily connect and integrate any device across the LAN and WAN.
Business Impacts of Traditional IT Solutions vs Tempered NetworksThe results below are based on a customer networking and segmenting thousands of Industrial IoT elements across ~100 distributed and often extremely remote sites. This customer was able to complete their project on time and significantly under budget, while providing a simpler and more secure overlay network architecture.
"A large security vendor had us convinced that we had to deploy next-gen Firewalls and VPNs in order to secure our remote weather station sites to the cloud. Because we use every type of connectivity from radio to different cellular and broadband providers, the complexity of having to manage policy across so many different networks was just too slow and costly. Plus they would all have to have a public address risking exposure.
With Tempered Networks, we were able to deploy HIPswitches in less than 15 minutes per site, with little to no changes to our existing network infrastructure. We didn't even have to set up an APN with the cell providers. All sensors and controls are now micro-segmented, inaccessible to any unauthorized system, and encrypted from site-to-private instances in our cloud."

Zero Trust Policy Orchestration and Micro-Segmentation in Minutes
Tempered Networks’ scalable orchestration engine was designed to be extremely easy to use with no advanced technical training and requires little to no change to existing infrastructure. Unlike the many complex, fragile, and disruptive steps associated with traditional IT solutions, our customers eliminate complexity, cost, and attack vectors through point-and-click policy orchestration.
First, our overlay network transparently creates cryptographic machine identities for every device to eliminate spoofing.
Second, every protected devices' network connections are automatically authenticated and authorized between trusted devices before data transport and exchange. Our unique network-level authentication creates verifiable trust segments that can't be discovered or exploited.
Third, all connections are transparently encrypted and encapsulated enabling non-disruptive and secure traversal across any type of network - public or private. Every device can now be quickly connected and protected across any LAN or WAN, segmented across any network and made invisible to hackers.
Point-and-Click Simple Management Trusted end-to-end connectivity with point-and-click simplicity to add, disable, and revoke machines.
