SECURITY vs Convenience and Acceptance
One of the key challenges with remote connections to industrial control systems is balancing the needs of an engineer or PLC technician with the mandate by the IT department to ensure network security, integrity and reliability. Finding a solution that is readily accepted by both business groups has been a challenge for many years and a source of frustration and inefficiency for all stakeholders. eWON understood that maintaining network security was essential for IT acceptance. At the same time, eWON realized users will never use solutions that are complex, difficult or interrupt productivity. By balancing both the security and ease of use, eWON has created a best-in-class Remote Access solution that works for both end users and IT managers.
The eWON layered Security Approach
While ease of use is important, the security, integrity, and reliability of eWON's Talk2M cloud infrastructure and its customers' networks is eWON's first priority. Using a defense-in-depth approach based on guidelines set forth by ISO27002, IEC 62443-2-4 and NIST Cyber security Framework 1.0 and other publications, guidelines and industry best practices, eWON developped a managed, hybrid, layered cyber security approach to protect its devices, network and most importantly, its customers's industrial systems.
