Well this is certainly a good product to come on the market for plant security, and more like it are going to be needed, especially as more and more plants adopt Ethernet and start connecting a whole host of things to a centralized network.
Rob, combating miscues is an added plus, but i think managing a strong security system is much more important and desirable. Cyber-crime has transformed itself into organized crime. The bad guys are constantly working and developing new and unique ways of causing this sophisticated crime, and they are way smarter than us. This is a very good stepping stone, but we need to keep developing similar strategies to constantly come in terms with these wrong doers.
Yes Elizabeth this is a really good attempt and Ethernet ids a good option to maximize the security. But it is really important to follow the plant security policy by each and every employee from right top to the bottom 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.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
