In 2015, Belden increased its investment in cyber security technology with the acquisition of Tripwire. Up until then, the breadth of our ICS security products included a range of industrially hardened devices that control, direct and filter industrial Ethernet communications.

With Tripwire, our solution set expanded to include identifying assets and evaluating their status with regards to security indicators such as configuration, change activity, hardening guidelines, standards compliance and threat intelligence.

While already a leader in NERC CIP compliance software, Tripwire recently announced enhancements to its Configuration Compliance Manager (CCM) that extend its industrial reach beyond electric utilities. Let’s examine how CCM’s new support for the important ISA IEC 62443 security standard and for Rockwell Automation’s control systems expands the toolkit of ICS security practitioners.

What’s your definition of a “partnership”? For data center managers, is a “partner” a manufacturer that keeps product in stock and readily available for data center deployment? Does a partner deliver products on time? Does a partner give you access to “discounted” products?

Sure, data center deployment partners should absolutely do these things. But these things don’t add real value beyond what any other manufacturer can do; every manufacturer should already be keeping products in stock and readily available to best serve you. Any vendor can sell products at a lower cost. But, in our opinion, true partners don’t buy your business – they earn it.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is revolutionizing the way manufacturing is done by connecting more smart devices and sharing the information they produce to improve existing business models and enable new ones.

Underlying this transformation is the network of physical objects – sensors, actuators, machines, controllers – which are embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity for collecting and exchanging data. And, just as the technology is changing, so are the processes for using it.

For example, there is a growing expectation that an industrial networking or automation product can be simply connected and turned on - and it will work. This concept is called “plug-and-produce.”

Let’s examine why it’s important.

LAN connections are on the move. Where they once resided in the walls of our buildings, they’re now relocating to the ceiling. With cabling and wiring located horizontally overhead, devices can connect to it there vs. at a LAN connection point on the wall.

Although they offer several opportunities to save money, time and floor space, 2-post racks do present one major drawback: How do you secure an open rack where equipment is exposed? When devices, cable and gear are visible in these types of racks, access is tempting – and pretty easy. For this reason, 2-post racks are most often used in applications without high security requirements.

The most common way to secure network equipment in a 2-post rack is by installing a brace on the hardware – and then bolting the brace to the two posts. But there’s another way to secure the equipment inside a 2-post rack: Belden SecurePatch.
