And Rob its seems to be that it's better to hire the bad guys with a good pay than the professionals in order to have a better security.

Point well taken, Pubudu, I am sure it is breach of security policy that is responsible for most plant security failures, and no matter what technology is in place this is key to keeping the network safe from intrusion.

I wouldn't say the bad guys are brave, Pubudu. But I would say they are ruthless.

That's a great point, Pubudu. That's just what the FBI did with Frank Abagnale, the Catch Me if You Can guy. They hired him to catch guys like himself.

Rugged devices are highly prefered in this types of devices extremely harmful to data and security. 

"As well as protecting against hackers, the router is designed to protect against accidental network intrusions." That's the importance of these devices.

Doesn't matter how 'rugged' they are, intrusion is still a possibility. Just look at the problems Linksys is having with their routers.
