Enhanced Security for Industrial Networks

09.04.09

With EAGLE20, Hirschmann Automation and Control, a Belden company based in Neckartenzlingen, Germany, has introduced the fourth generation of its industrial networking firewall. Like other Hirschmann products, EAGLE20 is based on the proven VxWorks real-time operating system. The new industrial firewall meets all requirements for operating as a security router, including Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) Firewall, Packet Filter Rules and a VPN Server.

Developed to serve as a “protective wall” around an industrial network, EAGLE20 forms a clear security parting line at the interface between the office and the industrial world. The protection level is further enhanced by providing the possibility of setting up various different security zones within the network. In this, any violation of the security in one zone will not affect the other zones.

Apart from new installations, existing networks can also benefit from the comprehensive security functions of the firewall, since EAGLE20 can easily be integrated without the need for changing IP addresses. Its VPN server always provides secure access to the network, whether through the LAN, during a permanent network connection or for a limited time during maintenance.

In line with the requirements of high reliability for industrial networks, EAGLE20 works as a redundant pair in the network, thus ensuring faultless operation. The firewall is configured by means of an intuitive web interface using a VPN Wizard, which eliminates the need for a complex Command Line Interface (CLI). For cases that require complete scripting control, however, an additional CLI is available.

Rail or wall installation, a rugged metal housing, an extended operating temperature range as well as comprehensive certifications ensure that EAGLE20 will master the challenges of any industrial environment.
