Effective process network protection: With its latest in next-generation firewalls, gateprotect now provides SCADA networks and control centers with even better protection

(PresseBox) ( Hamburg, )
gateprotect GmbH, a subsidiary of the Rohde & Schwarz Group and leading provider of highly sophisticated network firewalls, has equipped its next-generation firewalls with the very latest processor technology. The German security solutions for the effective protection of complex SCADA networks and critical infrastructures are now even more powerful. Network Protector is specifically designed for use in process networks in the energy sector and fully supports the IEC 104 protocol, among other things.

gateprotect is the first and currently only firewall manufacturer to respond to the specific requirements of the energy sector. The innovative company is an expert in the protection of SCADA protocols for the energy industry, which, pursuant to the IT Security Act recently passed by the German government, require special protection.

The powerful next-generation firewall Network Protector, which is now even more powerful due to its new hardware, decodes and validates data packets similarly to the operating principle of an airport baggage scanner, and thereby offers reliable network protection specifically for critical infrastructures.

With eight processor cores instead of just two, the new Network Protector S series - the security solution for small companies and branch offices - achieves a firewall throughput of 1,700 Mbit/s and therefore significantly boosts performance.

With speeds of up to 5,500 Mbit/s, the new M series products for medium-sized companies achieve almost three times the firewall throughput they did before. Meanwhile, the UTM throughput doubles to 2,000 Mbit/s when all the UTM features, such as malware, Web filter, and IPS, are activated. This ensures that medium-sized energy companies and control centers are also effectively protected with maximum performance.

Thanks to the flexible expansion options using network interface modules, additional protection mechanisms can also be switched on quickly should the security requirements increase. Network Protector can therefore also be maintained and upgraded during operation - a first for the product.

A factory reset feature, the import of backups and application of new configurations, the product can be quickly and intuitively upgraded, without having to replace the hardware. The new redundant power supply units also allow for uninterrupted operation and guarantee continuous network protection.

With Network Protector L800, the portfolio contains a particularly powerful model for enterprise environments. With a firewall throughput of 8,000 Mbit/s, this next-generation firewall offers effective network protection for the demanding security requirements of complex networks, such as large energy infrastructures.
