Secure Industrial Network Design Features Reduce Risk

What are the features of a secure network infrastructure? Today’s industrial organizations turn to Rockwell Automation to ensure that the right network security features are in place for high security, high efficiency, and lower risk of downtime from cyberattacks.
A flexible and resilient OT network architecture typically includes features that help protect critical business assets such as controllers, data, assets and applications. Segmentation strategies such as deploying an Industrial Demilitarized Zone, or IDMZ, can help prevent breaches that start in IT from moving to OT networks. Additional micro-segmentation steps can create granular ‘Protect Surfaces’ around specific assets, further hardening perimeters with firewalls and increased access controls.
Continuous threat monitoring is a necessity when protecting high-stakes operations. And when it comes to devices accessing the network – mobile, IoT devices and others - an endpoint security strategy provides a significant layer of defense. All these considerations are part of the service stack from Rockwell Automation, built for you or deployed as managed services.
