Industrial network management software

Belden : 21 July, 2015  (New Product)
Latest version of industrial network management software includes security functions to reduce infrastructure risk
Industrial network management software

Belden has released the latest version of its Hirschmann network management software. Industrial HiVision 6.0 enables streamlined network management and delivers comprehensive security functionalities for the configuration and supervision of industrial Ethernet networks. With this software, industrial networks can be managed holistically, ultimately increasing the network’s availability.

The enhanced security functionalities of Industrial HiVision 6.0 allow industrial manufacturers to:

* Assign various rights and levels of access to the network through the new user roles feature, increasing application security and regulatory compliance.
* Easily configure and manage all devices on the network by referring to a graphical topology map that outlines the current state of each Hirschmann device and where security functions should be used, reducing the risk of network security misconfiguration.
* Access all systems with one username and password through the single sign-on function, and efficiently apply standard security functions with the security lockdown feature across all devices with just a few clicks.

“Network security is the biggest area of concern for engineers today, as networks typically fail due to an unauthorized change to an infrastructure device,” said Mark Cooksley, product manager at Belden. “The latest version of Industrial HiVision was designed with this in mind and offers a rich set of functionalities for effectively monitoring exposure to such threats. A dedicated security screen provides the security status of network infrastructure devices at a glance.”

In addition to enhanced security functionalities and streamlined network management capabilities, the updated software also offers improvements to the HiMobile client for Industrial HiVision. Available as an app for iOS, Android and Windows tablets and phones, HiMobile 2.0 provides a complete graphical topology map of the entire network, including subdomains. Network administrators therefore have access to the information they need at all times for effective network management.

Industrial HiVision is ideal for use in the factory automation, transportation, vertical manufacturing, and power and utility industries.
