Firewall Concept Expanded
Mon, 12/10/2007 - 10:30am
The Tofino Security Appliance from Measurement Technology Ltd. and Byres Security Inc. has achieved Foundation-level Mu Security Industrial Control (MUSIC) Certification. The appliance expands the concept of a conventional firewall with centrally manageable and dynamically loadable security modules to provide encryption, intrusion detection and control, and protocol-aware security solutions tailored to specific plant floor situations. It was proactively used during Tofino research and development activities to automate its ongoing security and robustness testing. MUSIC certification expedites this ongoing policy of integrating safety testing throughout the product deployment lifecycle.
