Securing the IIoT with Flexible Firewalls

November 12, 2018 Brandon Lewis

Traditional IT firewalls don’t translate well to the factory floor, necessitating a new class of industrial firewall appliances. Industrial firewalls emphasize flexibility, simplicity, and reliability over scalability and performance, but firewall equipment that meets these requirements is in limited supply off the shelf.

In this article, industrial network engineers will learn:

  • The challenges of network security in industrial environments
  • How Intel Atom® processors enable flexible industrial firewall designs
  • About platforms that accelerate industrial firewall deployment
