Belden Delivers User-Friendly DPI Technology to Improve Industrial Scalability, Security
New Deep Packet Inspection Enforcer Protects Critical Energy Infrastructure
St. Louis, Missouri - February 22, 2018 - Belden, Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has released the latest version of the Tofino Xenon Security Appliance Release 3.2, which supports the new Tofino Xenon Generic Object-Oriented System Events (GOOSE) Enforcer Loadable Security Module (LSM). The plug-in security module ensures data packets are delivered in a secure and scalable manner.
“Managing large deployments of data while simultaneously ensuring network security is increasingly difficult for even the most advanced teams. Evolving industrial security standards require extensive network oversight that traditional firewall technology can’t always provide,” said Divij Agarwal, product manager at Belden. “Belden applied new DPI technology with this dilemma in mind. Easy to implement and integrate into existing networks, this new version of the Tofino Xenon Security Appliance will help teams improve the health and longevity of their industrial communication systems.”
With the Tofino Xenon Release 3.2, users can better manage networks through several compelling features:
- Simplify compliance to safety and security standards with new superior protection against attacks and misconfigurations.
- Reduce downtime, maintenance costs and production losses by managing large deployments of data from a central location.
- Improve system reliability and stability through superior integration capabilities with Tripwire solutions.
The new Tofino Xenon GOOSE Enforcer LSM, the featured update to Release 3.2, is best suited for sectors that require enhanced DPI to prevent attacks and support dispersed network communications, SCADA Master Station protection and NERC CIP compliance. The device is ideal for industrial markets that communicate over long distances, often from a centralized location, such as the energy, manufacturing, machine building, food and beverage, and water/wastewater sectors.
