Ransomware is the new omnipresent cybersecurity threat to manufacturing – all security attacks that took down automation operations since 2020 were targeted ransomware. Ransomware is a threat to manufacturers as it can halt production and disrupt day-to-day operations. With the digital transformation of the manufacturing process, cyber risk management and cyber risks are constantly changing as threat landscapes and attack surfaces expand, requiring security visibility into all IT, OT, and IoT systems across all facilities.
From operational networks to critical infrastructure, cybersecurity has become top-of-mind as organizations adopt new, more efficient technologies into their production processes for launching new products, improving customer experience, and stay ahead of the competition. An OT/IT convergence strategy is crucial to OT cybersecurity, and achieving visibility and threat detection, ensuring industrial network security and reliability, in order to reduce enterprise information security risks, and avoid network threats for critical infrastructure.
A European leading provider specializing in OT and IoT security solutions sought to collaborate with Lanner to build a rugged cybersecurity network appliance. The hardware platform needed to provide the following features:
- Server-Grade Processing Power
Server-grade processing power is needed to achieve real-time visibility and monitoring across all IT, OT, and IoT systems. A 1U rackmount network appliance that can be customized with Intel® Xeon® E or Core™ i3 or Pentium® or Celeron® and Intel® C246 chipset would provide a powerful performance and increased efficiency.
- Multiple Connectivity I/O Ports
Modular monitoring ports with 1000Base-T and SFP+ NIC expansion slots enable throughput for a variety of workloads and delivers different network capacities demanded by industrial automation, industrial IoT and edge computing.
- High Availability
A high availability platform ensures continuous operations and uptime for an extended period, and will simply operate when and as needed. Lanner’s platforms offer 300W 1+1 ATX Redundant PSUs, assuring non-stop and robust operating performance.
- Ruggedized and Wide-Temp
For industrial environment, Lanner’s rackmount fanless industrial edge consolidation server is compliant with IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 standards and supports -40~70°C wide operating temperatures.
Lanner provides scalable and interoperable network platforms designed for building secure and reliable communications for critical infrastructure. Lanner modular hardware appliances not only enables AI computing, secures data transport, and streamlines management, but also consolidate virtualized network applications at the industrial IoT edge.
The NCA-5220, a 1U rackmount network appliance that can be customized with Intel® Xeon® E or Core™ i3 or Pentium® or Celeron® and Intel® C246 chipset, comes with generous and flexible configurations for LAN ports, NIC expansion, storage and management, delivering advanced networking prowess for network traffic security, cloud computing and data centers.
LEC-3340, a 3U rackmount industrial edge consolidation server, is powered by Intel® Xeon® E3-1505L V6 or Core™ i5-7442EQ (formerly Kaby Lake-H) processor, to offer outstanding performance. Designed to be robust, LEC-3340 is IEC-61850 and IEEE 1613 compliant. This industrial-grade edge consolidation server provides rich I/O functions, including 4 x PCIe slots, 4 x RJ-45 GbE LAN ports, 5 x USB 3.0 ports, 2 x 2.5” swappable drive bays, DP/DVI display port, and 2 x isolated COM ports.
Lanner’s Industrial Grade PCIe Expansion Network Interface Card LEK-IS401 / LEK-IG401 comprises 4-port GbE RJ45 / 4x GbE SFP ports and is driven by the powerful Intel i210IS/IT Ethernet controller. This industrial grade expansion card supports wide operating temperatures of -40 to 70ºC for demanding rugged environments.
