|NextGen Smart Firewall Simplifies Network Security for Distributed Control Systems|
Emerson is improving perimeter security for the DeltaV™ distributed control system (DCS) with its new NextGen Smart Firewall, a purpose-built control system firewall designed to provide easy-to-install and easy-to-maintain perimeter security for all industries. More ruggedized construction, increased bandwidth, and role-based access provide users with increased performance and more granular access control.
Manufacturers need to secure their networks without complexity that would otherwise add administrative overhead to already busy operations teams. Emerson's NextGen Smart Firewall features a user-friendly HTML5 web-based user interface, easy to understand setup menus, and pre-defined DeltaV application rules. The ease of use helps DeltaV administrators and control engineers with no security or information technology (IT) expertise create secure connections for DeltaV applications.
|Easy-to-Use Test Devices Record Reception Quality On Site; Identify Radio Coverage Problems|
S.E.A. Datentechnik GmbH have presented new innovative solutions for surveying mobile radio, WLAN and IIoT radio infrastructures.
Mobile wireless communication is indispensable today -- all the more important it is to know the radio coverage or availability and quality of mobile radio and WLAN networks. S.E.A.'s easy-to-use drive test and walk test devices SEA 3714C and SEA3809E use multiple sensors to simultaneously record the current reception situation and display it on maps. This solution provides a simple way of clarifying radio coverage problems and creates a perfect basis for their elimination. With the help of so-called drive tests, public mobile radio networks can be detected as well as private campus networks.
|Global Multicloud Transit Hub Network Secures Cloud-to-Cloud Networking|
Apcela has launched a global network of cloud service provider (CSP) neutral multicloud transit hubs across 120 cities worldwide. The Arcus Transit Hub network is built on Apcela's Arcus platform, and within its existing globally distributed AppHubs. It enables enterprises to easily and securely integrate core data centers, offices, and remote users with Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud platforms using low-latency private network connectivity.
"The Apcela Arcus Transit Hub was designed to solve shortcomings by orchestrating both the underlay and overlay networks, from datacenter to the cloud, and cloud-to-cloud, all the way to the VPC," noted Apcela's VP of Product & Solution Engineering, Kunal Thakkar. Thakkar continued, "Our customers were asking for a product with the power and simplicity of the AWS Transit Gateway, but outside of AWS. That is the blueprint we used to build our multicloud transit hub network, which sits between clouds, enabling lower cost, private, secure multicloud interconnection."
