The convergence of IT and industrial automation networks has created new opportunities to improve productivity, but has also heightened security threats posed by malicious hackers, worms, and viruses. Moxa (Brea, CA) has introduced a new solution to address these issues: the EDR-810, a new Gigabit-performance secure router with built-in managed switch. Integration of security and networking functionality into a single device means additional savings in deployment cost and effort, says the company. The EDR-810 is an industrial-grade 8+2G secure router with Firewall/NAT/VPN and managed L2 switching functions, which allows it to transmit data efficiently while protecting the network and critical devices from cyber attacks. This solution can help reduce power consumption and panel space, and is priced at the same level as a typical managed switch only.
