Pilz protects controllers from unauthorised access
01 June 2018
PILZ SECURITYBRIDGE protects configurable, safe small controllers PNOZmulti and the automation system PSS 4000 from network-based attacks and unauthorised access.
With SecurityBridge, Pilz is expanding its product range to include the area of Industrial Security. The Pilz SecurityBridge protects the connections between the programming/configuration tools and the hardware controllers from manipulation by detecting unauthorised changes to the automation project, for example.
The SecurityBridge acts as a firewall. However, unlike generic firewalls, they do not need complex configuration; thanks to application-specific default settings they are easy to commission using the plug-and-play principle.
As well as benefiting from the security aspect, users also enjoy higher plant availability because only the data that is necessary (authorised configuration and process data) is transmitted.
