Cyber security How you can protect your network with the help of IEC 62443
To enable the secure operation of automated systems – from the design, through implementation, right through to management - the international IEC 62443 series of standards describes rules for component manufacturers, system integrators, and operators. It comprises various standards and areas that are aimed at different target groups. However, there is not one overarching solution for implementing the standards and for increasing your security level.
Phoenix Contact already has multiple certifications for implementing IEC 62443. Cyber Security is firmly anchored in the life cycle of our products and solutions: In the form of a secure product development process, in the sense of modern security functions, when advising customers, when creating secure network concepts, and also through a professional vulnerability management system (PSIRT).
We would be happy to provide advice on what your tailored IEC 62443 solution should include.
Network diagnostics Increased stability and reliability for your network
Even small errors in the network can cause big problems: Loose or defective cables can disconnect entire areas from the network. In the event of high data loads, data is not transmitted at normal speeds. Inadequate protection against unauthorized access presents a high risk of network failures.
It is therefore all the more important to identify and resolve errors quickly. But you do not need special software or external diagnostic tools in order to receive information on devices, connections, and the structure of your network. This is because Managed Switches provide a variety of diagnostics data and analysis functions, simply via the web-based management system.
