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.”

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.
In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
