NEXCOM, a leading provider of network appliances and Industry 4.0 solutions, has announced the release of the ISA140, a new industrial security appliance for establishing a dependable OT network. ISA 140 meets all of the demands of today’s factories: Its small DIN rail design allows it to be readily integrated into existing OT network infrastructure, and its ruggedized chassis will enable it to survive the test of time under challenging settings.

ISA 140 includes Out-of-Band remote management, seamless Wi-Fi/LTE connectivity, numerous ports for enabling more connections, and LAN ports with bypass for increased security and uninterrupted traffic, all powered by a dual-core Intel® Atom® CPU.

Industry 4.0 continues to advance at a breakneck pace, and it is now more than a buzzword; it is a reality. As a result, manufacturers worldwide are changing their attention away from labour and industrial automation, IIoT systems, and intelligent manufacturing, all of which pose new issues, particularly in data security. Moreover, setting up an insecure OT network infrastructure can lead to a slew of unpleasant surprises, hassles, and even production interruptions for plant managers, as business owners quickly learn.

As an OT network security appliance, NEXCOM’s ISA 140 addresses common difficulties faced by plant managers. With built-in security feature of “micro-segregation,” which identifies and puts suspicious or unwanted data packets under “quarantine” in segregated zones to prevent further spread, records and reports suspicious network behaviour, and prohibits unauthorized access.
