Innominate launches new mGuard Firewall with Multi Stealth Mode and Re-dundancy support

BERLIN -- Innominate Security Technologies has launched its new range of mGuard ‘device attached security’ products designed to protect critical manufacturing equipment and computer systems on industrial Ethernet networks. mGuard industrial is the first professional DIN-mounted hardware firewall device de-signed specifically for production environments that also offers comprehensive virus protection, VPN and hardware encryption along with audit and centralised SNMP-based management.

A different version is the mGuard bladePack, which provides up to 12 mGuard appli-ances that can be mounted into a standard 19” rack. This modular approach delivers the highest levels of individual protection for multiple systems and servers to protect the integration between production and office networks.

With Innominate’s innovative ‘device attached security’, each system or logically con-solidated group is individually safeguarded with its own firewall. This new approach to security ensures high-availability as the increased use of TCP/IP and Ethernet in automated production has made industrial networks vulnerable to internal or external attack from viruses, worms, hackers and other destructive pro-grams.

Innominate’s Multi Stealth Mode means that the mGuard device remains ‘invisible’ to the systems themselves and undetectable by would-beattackers from in or outside the network. The Multi Stealth Modesecures individual units all the way up to complete network segments.

Brand-new mGuard provides firewall redundancy, fail-over with hot swap and auto-configuration so that both security settings and the protection itself are never lost. If a redundant firewall takes over during operation, all predefined configurations are instantly transferred to the stand-by device. A further new function is the Autolearning Mode, which records all the data links during setup so that it is able to suggest security rules to the administrator. Over one or several cycles, the security policies can be transferred from the running network flow. Further functions included in the mGuard are VLAN support according to 802.1Q, MAC filtering, LLDP autodiscovery, a syslog function and SNMP Trap support.
