BELDEN INTRODUCES ITS NEXT GENERATION OF INDUSTRIAL SECURITY SOLUTIONS
New Tofino Xenon and Configurator 2.0 Increase Customization,
Flexibility and Ease of Securing Industrial Networks
Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a global leader in signal transmission solutions
for mission-critical applications, has released the next generation of
its Tofino Security solutions for industrial control systems. The new Tofino
Xenon and Tofino
Configurator (TC 2.0) offer a level of flexibility and
customization that’s unique to the industry, and enable network managers
to easily upgrade their existing systems without downtime.
The evolution of Belden’s security hardware and software solutions now
include increased customization capabilities and improved ease of use.
The enhancements of these next-generation products allow industries,
such as oil and gas, power utilities and manufacturing, to easily
install upgrades on live systems with minimal configuration. Ultimately,
the new features will maximize network uptime by enhancing overall data
security and reducing operational risks.
The Tofino Xenon is designed to withstand the harshest
conditions, while ensuring maximum data security for production
networks. Other benefits of the Xenon include:
Custom-built options, such as designated temperature ranges and
Compliance with global standards, customizable for use in electrical
substations, hazardous environments or transportation systems.
Easy integration into existing, live networks with no
pre-configuration needs or risk of production disruptions.
“The Tofino Xenon is highly customizable. No matter the network
engineer’s needs, this firewall can meet the security requirements of
different protocols, industries and environments,” said Eric Byres,
chief technology officer at Belden’s Tofino Security. “It’s designed to
be safely installed on a running network with no pre-configuration, and
the hardware comes loaded with the required software. Our goal is for
companies to build industrial security solutions their way.”

To configure and manage the Xenon appliances, Belden has also rolled out
a complementary Windows-based management software. The TC 2.0 was
developed with input from a major oil company and designed to be faster
and easier to use. Predefined templates enable the software to
accommodate both basic and advanced network security needs. With a more
intuitive user interface and simpler deployment process, the TC 2.0 also
easily integrates into third-party security products. Most importantly,
it offers built-in guidance for easy, accurate rule creation by
operations and engineering staff who may not be full-time network
“With the configurator, we wanted to make the implementation process
simple for both advanced users, and those just beginning to manage
network security,” said Byres. “By using predefined templates, the TC
2.0 can intuitively propose a set of rules for the specific control
products used in a facility. It meets each user where they are, to make
industrial security easier to execute and manage.”

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).
Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense.
In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively.
What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
