Industrial Gigabit MACsec Encoder
MACsec provides a low cost solution to enable legacy point-to-point (PTP) data security for IP devices, PLC systems and a host of automation and IP security equipment.
The majority of industrial control systems are susceptible to cyber attacks as they continue to be designed without security in mind. Following the "Industroyer" malware attack on a European Power Grid, whereby these threats have materialised, security has become a serious concern for plant operators.
Our philosophy has been to add a next generation layer of security to the weak points of the industrial control system network. With the introduction of MACsec, the ISO Layer 2 communications to and from the SCADA system can be protected to prevent data being compromised by simple packet sniffing exploits (interception of PLC Protocol e.g. Modbus), or man-in-the-middle attacks (spoofing and interception and packet manipulation).
