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 the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT's direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
