Security communications processors
Protect your SIMATIC automation devices
With their integrated firewall – to monitor the data flow – and VPN, security communications processors protect against data manipulation and espionage. A special benefit of the security communications processors for SIMATIC controllers is the automatic generation of firewall rules when configured using the TIA Portal. The firewall automatically approves configured communications connections, which substantially reduces the time needed for configuration and also the risk of error.

CP 1243-1, CP 1243-7 LTE, and CP 1243-8 IRC
Thanks to the integrated security functions (firewall and VPN), the communications processors protect SIMATIC S7-1200 stations and downstream networks against unauthorized access, and also encrypt data transfers to protect against manipulation and espionage.
CP 1543-1, CP 1545-1
Thanks to their integrated security functions (firewall, VPN), and data encryption protocols like FTPs and SNMPv3, the communications processors protect stations with SIMATIC S7-1500 controllers and downstream networks against unauthorized access.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit.
Professional support for future-proof communications networks
First-class network components will not create a first-class industrial communications network on their own. A thorough understanding of network designs is at least as important. You get both when you deal with us and our certified Solution Partners. That’s where you benefit: our Professional Services for Industrial Networks give you professional help in developing your network solution – tailored to suit your specific requirements.
