NEXCOM's latest security hardware platform, ISA 1120A, handles software-design flexibility while offering shielded industrial network protection. Leveraging Intel® x86 architecture, security software vendors can shorten time to market against escalating industrial cyber threats. Layered protection combined with accelerated encryption/decryption can be deployed with industrial-grade ISA 1120A, which helps factories build secured network access for remote asset monitoring, maximized system up-time, and reliable operation.
The security hardware allows fast software design, development and time to industrial markets. Based on Intel® Atom™ processor E3815, ISA 1120A offers a design-friendly environment, thus lowering efforts and costs to industrial markets with tailor-made security software protection.
The security hardware also helps build secure VPN access for remote monitoring, which leads to real-time supervision of operations and optimized production efficiency over the factory floor. SSL VPN encrypts data before transmission while decrypting it at the authorized end to prevent eavesdropping and tampering. Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES NI) speeds up data encryption and decryption with enhanced efficiency. Besides secure networking, ISA 1120A supports one LAN Bypass port for fail-safe access. Abnormal equipment operation can be remotely detected and fixed in time, thus extending up-time.
The firewall functionality can also be added in the security hardware platform. For instance, rigid whitelists can be created to authorize access to specific programs and IP addresses. Combined with VPN, remote access to supervision of operations and data can be implemented securely, fending off performance deficiency caused by cyber attacks.
To ensure operating reliability in demanding industrial applications, the security hardware has wide-temperature durability from -40 to 70 degree Celsius. Fanless design eliminates overheating from dust ingress while wide voltage tolerance from 9 to 30V DC avoids system damages from unstable power supplies.
