In order to protect the automation network from unauthorized access, the use of a firewall is an adequate solution.

  • All Security Integrated products have an IP-based stateful packet inspection firewall integrated.
  • With the SCALANCE S industrial security appliance (S615 and SC-600) and the SCALANCE M industrial routers, the IP-based stateful packet inspection firewall can be configured user-specifically.
  • The SCALANCE SC-600 industrial security appliance also supports the bridge firewall  to protect that network.
