After a Warehousing and Logistics company deployed an industrial IoT security solution, its network security protection capability was significantly improved.From the end-point perspective, the underlying industrial equipment and sensors are guaranteed to operate normally, and the terminal equipment is included in the scope of safety supervision, no longer forming a safety “blind zone”, and at the same time providing a primary data source for building an industrial enterprise security situational awareness capability.
The internal security operation and maintenance capability and the external attack defense capability are significantly improved.At the same time, the remote access technology and the wireless control technology commonly used in the warehousing service are appropriately secured.In particular, the corresponding security policy is deployed for the access control of the network perimeter to meet the requirements of the classified protection.
Deploy a network management platform in the cloud to visualize the security situation, so that network security administrators can gain awareness of device usage, information transmission, and network activity status.
To ensure the security of the cloud management platform, wide protection of data lifecycle within the management system and encryption of the transmission channel are important functionalities.
This enabled the company to form an overall industrial IoT security protection capability covering endpoint, network and cloud to support its operational development.
