Software Encrypts Networks

Prinoth Bedrock Automation announced Cybershield 2.0, which extends its intrinsic cyber security protection to networks, the Internet of Things (IoT) and third-party applications. The firmware enables authentication and encryption of I/O networks and field devices, and it protects compliant networks and user applications such as controller configuration, engineering and SCADA. The company also announced a controller that enables end users to obtain customized, company-specific root keys and certificates. For users who want to increase protection of their IP, infrastructure and human resources by restricting access to only registered, company-controlled assets, the SCC.X Controller is injected at factory birth with company- unique root keys and certificates, effectively limiting connections to company- mandated, approved devices.
