The foundation for secure networks : TÜV certification demonstrates the security of network components
Siemens has received TÜV certification in compliance with IEC 62443-4-2 and -4-1 for network components in the Scalance XB-200, XC-200, XP-200, XF-200BA and XR-300WG product families. Customers are therefore able to realize secure system architectures, which clearly increases the overall security of a plant.
The certification demonstrates that the product development process previously certified has been consequently applied during product development of above-mentioned SCALANCE X-product lines. It also confirms that key technical product requirements have been taken into account and implemented in the network components.
Secure networking at all levelsSCALANCE offers a comprehensive portfolio of integrated industrial communication solutions. With this portfolio, you will find the perfect connection for every industrial application – from the automotive to the chemical industry, as well as in manufacturing and process industries. They are designed for use at all network levels in order to offer ultra-efficient and future-proof communication.
PLUGs – removable data storage media for SCALANCE devices
With the removable data storage media PLUGs, additional functions for different network components can easily be activated. Using the C-PLUG, KEY-PLUG or SCALANCE CLP removable data storage media, you can additionally perform device replacement easily and without any special knowledge in the event of a fault.
FastConnect – a cabling system gets the hang
Structured cabling is the basis of an industrial bus system or network and must fulfill much higher requirements than cabling in the office area. Stringent demands are placed on the installation of cables in the industrial environment. Siemens offers FastConnect, a system that fulfils all these requirements: On-site assembly - quick, easy and error-free.
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).
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.
