White Paper From Cisco and Rockwell Automation Helps Securely Share Plant and Enterprise Data

Designing an industrial demilitarised zone with the right assets helps enable secure data-sharing from plantwide network to enterprise network

Many manufacturers segment business-system networks from plantwide networks by using an industrial demilitarised zone (IDMZ). But once segmented, how is data from industrial automation and control systems (IACS) securely shared across this buffer zone?

A new white paper from Cisco and Rockwell Automation, “Securely Traversing IACS Data Across the Industrial Demilitarized Zone,” provides guidance for successfully designing and deploying an IDMZ as part of a Converged Plantwide Ethernet architecture. This allows manufacturers to securely share IACS data from the plantwide network to the enterprise network. The paper explains key IDMZ assets that enable this secure data-sharing, which include application mirrors and remote desktop gateway services.

The white paper summarises key design principles from a comprehensive design and implementation guide on IDMZ, which is available herehttp://http//:rockwellautomation.com.au.
