Protecting plants from cyber-attacks

22 September 2015

The new 9202-ETS MTL security system is said to provide the highest level of network security for process automation applications.

The Tofino security system is easy to install and includes the latest configurator software to protect industrial networks from cyber-security vulnerabilities. This maximises plant uptime and process availability while protecting it from external network attack.
 
“When industrial SCADA systems were not connected they were considered immune to attacks. However, the trend towards open standards such as Ethernet TCP/IP and web technologies has seen these systems affected by a growing number of threats,” explained Roger Highton, product line manager at Eaton.  “Traditional firewalls are not designed for control systems or industrial threats. The MTL 9202-ETS gives process managers in the power, utilities, oil and gas and water and wastewater industries a cost-effective security protection.”
