Innominate warns of increasing threats to industrial Ethernet.

Innominate Security Technologies : 12 June, 2007  (Technical Article)
Industrial organisations are subject to increasing threat to productivity due to increasing security exposures on industrial Ethernet, the main information backbone of the organisation.
Industrial Ethernet has been identified by manufacturers as the ideal way to improve productivity and quality while reducing costs. It allows manufacturers to control information, configuration, diagnostics, safety, synchronisation, and motion on the same network while seamlessly connecting to information and enterprise systems. However to take advantage of the benefits the technology offers and bridge the commercial-industrial divide, businesses must navigate an increasing number of standards and an increasing number of threats associated with industrial automation highlights Innominate's CEO, Joachim Fietz


'Industrial Ethernet is set to revolutionise the way industrial companies use technology in manufacturing. The benefits Ethernet unlocks are huge and in terms of service improvement its similar to home users making the switch from dial-up to broadband, but it won't be all plain sailing' warns Joachim Fietz, CEO, Innominate. 'The increase of standard protocols in the industrial automation sector means that there is an accompanying increase in threats that companies must protect themselves against. Failure to increase security will not just negate the potential benefits that can be realised through Industrial Ethernet, but threaten all productivity and output. The technology opens the door for greater productivity to be achieved, but for organisations to reap those benefits security must be a consideration of implementing any new technologies within an industrial environment.'
