SCALANCE S Industrial Security Appliance at a glanceWhether the goal is cell protection, a demilitarized zone (DMZ), authenticated access via VPN or dynamic firewall rules, SCALANCE S Industrial Security Appliances protect your automation network against many different threats to suit your needs, thanks to a large portfolio of security mechanisms that can be used in combination. In conjunction with comprehensive protection measures, this will build up effective defense against unintentional system accesses or targeted attacks.
Security in industrial networks
SCALANCE S Industrial Security Appliances from Siemens let you seamlessly connect your industrial network to the security structures of the office and IT world. Therefore, the Security Appliances fulfill the special requirements of automation technology, like simple upgrading of existing plants, ease of commissioning, and less downtimes if a fault occurs.
The SCALANCE S Security Appliance family is developed in accordance with the Industrial Security Standard IEC 62443-4-1, as certified by the TÜV. These devices ensure the implementation of a flexible security zone (using e.g., network separation, a DMZ or secure remote maintenance), enable configurations using TIA Portal, Web based management (WBM) and CLI, and can be integrated via SINEC NMS network management software. They can also be used in a temperature range of -40 to +70°C. In addition, SCALANCE SC-600 devices provide network security of plants via redundancy with the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP).
Security with versatile firewall mechanisms
Industrial Firewall Appliances offer firewall performance of up to 750 Mbit/s and enable secure access between separate network segments using a bridge or routed firewall. Dynamic firewall rules allow temporary network accesses to be granted as required. The connection can be made via 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet ports and over fiber optic for large distances (up to 200 km). In addition, the SCALANCE SC622-2C or SCALANCE SC626-2C Industrial Firewall Appliance can be used for network separation in PROFIsafe environment.
Secure access via Virtual Private Networks
In addition to the versatile firewall mechanisms of the Industrial Firewall Appliances, Industrial VPN Appliances also permit up to 200 VPN connections with a data throughput of up to 120 Mbit/s. The connection can be made via 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet ports and over fiber optic for large distances (up to 200 km). SCALANCE S615 EEC with additional coating of the printed circuit board is suitable for use under harsh environmental conditions, e.g. in the oil and gas industry.
Plug-in transceiver for SCALANCE
Plug-in transceivers allow you to flexibly equip network components of the SCALANCE family with an SFP slot for optical connections.
