Why Industrial Firewalls?
Industrial firewalls are designed to filter unsafe industrial communication protocols without compromising network performance. Moxa’s EDR series provides integrated cyber security solutions that combine firewall, VPN, router, and L2 switching functions into one product specifically designed for automation networks.
The EDR series provides firewall protection for critical network devices such as PLCs, RTUs, and DCSs, thereby enabling network isolation to avoid communications interruptions between devices. The EDR series also can protect and isolate the network when broadcast storm packets accumulate from a malfunctioning device.
Secure Remote Access and Critical Device Protection
As an all-in-one firewall/NAT/VPN/router, the EDR series creates encrypted VPN tunnels between control rooms and remote sites. In addition, the built-in firewall/NAT functions prevent unauthorized access or broadcast storms, caused by malfunctioning devices, from damaging critical network devices, such as PLCs and DCS.
Here are the key features of the EDR series.
- High data throughput to avoid risks of network interruption
- Transparent firewall mode without subnet configuration change
- Deep packet inspection to filter industrial protocols
- Real-time event alert via SNMP traps and Syslogs
- 5-step firewall setup wizard
- Industrial firewall/VPN/NAT/router/switch all-in-one
