SCALANCE S Industrial Security Appliances at a glanceWhether the goal is cell protection, a demilitarized zone (DMZ), or authenticated access via VPN or user-specific 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
The SCALANCE S Industrial Security Appliances from Siemens let you seamlessly connect your automation network to the security structures of the office and IT world. In doing so, the appliances fulfill the special requirements of automation technology, like simple upgrading of existing plant, ease of commissioning, and minimum downtimes if a fault occurs. The various security measures can be flexibly combined with each other to suit specific security needs.
SCALANCE S is developed in accordance with the provisions of the Industrial Security Standard IEC 62443-4-1, as certified by the TÜV. These provide for the implementation of a flexible security zone concept (using network separation, a DMZ or secure remote maintenance, for example), permit versatile configuration using TIA Portal, WBM and CLI, and can be integrated into the SINEC NMS network management software. They can also be used in a temperature range of -40 to +70°C.
Security with versatile firewall mechanisms
Industrial Firewall Appliances offer firewall performance of approx. 600 Mbit/s and secure access between separate network segments using a bridge firewall. User-specific 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 Industrial Firewall Appliances can be used for network separation in PROFIsafe environment.
Secure accesses via Virtual Private Networks
In addition to the versatile firewall mechanisms, 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).
SINEC for efficient network management
Industrial communication networks have to meet enormous requirements on security, clarity and increasing complexity. This can only be achieved in future and successfully with efficient and future-proof network management that covers all phases: from initial commissioning of the network components, through central management, policy-based configurations and transparent monitoring of the network to conveniently centrally managed network services, especially for Operational Technology (OT).
SINEMA Remote Connect – management platform for remote networks
Users can utilize SINEMA Remote Connect to conveniently and securely maintain widely distributed plants or machines via remote access.
