Industrial networking secure operating system

Belden : 18 November, 2014  (New Product)
The HiSecOS 2.0 operating system available from Belden enables secure VPN connections and dynamic routing on industrial networks
Industrial networking secure operating system

Belden has introduced the newest version of its Hirschmann Security Operating System known as HiSecOS. With the HiSecOS Version 2.0, customers now have greater levels of insight into network data, as well as the ability to more easily create network routes and connect to multiple secure sites.

The key new features available with the HiSecOS 2.0 software include:

* Simpler network configuration options through the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) dynamic routing protocol, which allow customers to set up network routes without any manual configuration required. The OSPF protocol also offers a seamless connection to the network’s backbone.

* Safer, more secure remote connections to the network via encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) communication. The VPN connection also makes it possible for customers to connect to two different secured sites using corporate networks.

* Protection against unwanted network traffic through an Intrusion Detection System (IDS), which enables customers to analyze ambiguous traffic, detect issues early and prevent those issues from replicating by identifying the root cause.

“The dynamic routing options, in combination with firewall functions, make this security operating system truly unique. Many firewalls do not provide them. The ability to connect seamlessly over VPN connection also enhances the security of the network,” said Product Manager Vinod Rana.

Similar to previous versions, HiSecOS 2.0 is exclusively developed with Hirschmann’s multi-port firewalls, the EAGLE20-0400 and EAGLE30-0402, in mind – to heighten overall network performance and offer more robust security features. These multi-port firewalls with router redundancy and wide area network (WAN) interface save significant time and costs, while helping achieve maximum network availability and reliability for industrial settings.

Due to robust design, EAGLE firewall products with HiSecOS 2.0 operate in various harsh industrial environments, including automotive, power transmission and distribution, oil and gas, and mining.

“It is becoming increasingly clear that security risks are present across all industrial settings. Our customers require networking equipment with reliable security features, so keeping our security product families up-to-date with the newest technology is key,” adds Rana. “HiSecOS 2.0’s new security and routing features not only improve uptime and reliability for customers, but also bring them enhanced ease-of-use and more understanding of the activity on their networks.”
