mGuard OPC Inspector

The intelligent protection for OPC Classic based on Deep Packet Inspection: The new module mGuard OPC Inspector masters the complex connection tracking of OPC dialogues across their changing ports and connection directions, thus enabling an effective control and filtering of OPC based on the stateful inspection firewall principle. For OPC communication via mGuard routers, even NAT methods such as masquerading or 1:1 NAT mapping can be used thanks to a special deep packet inspection technique - a true world first and little sensation for experienced OPC users.

mGuard Firmware 8.1

New release adds premium cybersecurity functions: The Innominate mGuard firmware is the shared core of all mGuard network security appliances. The system, now available in release 8.1, puts into practice the newest market and customer requirements for the security of networked industrial systems. With the new Conditional Firewall functionality, pre-defined situational firewall rule sets can literally be activated at the push of a button. By various simple triggering events, asset operators can thus switch between firewall rule sets for different operating conditions, e.g., when different connections shall be allowed or denied during production, maintenance, or remote servicing situations. All mGuard appliances equipped with firmware 8.1 of course can be managed centrally using the mGuard device manager now available in version 1.6.
