Anybus Edge Gateway with Switch Codesys

With Anybus Edge Gateways, data from industrial devices and machines can be accessed in an easy and secure way, also allowing full data and device management over the application lifecycle. The Edge Gateways enable edge intelligence, intelligent decentralized operations to be executed close to the data sources. From the gateways, user-defined data is provided via HMS Hub to the cloud over a secure connection. Perfect for monitoring applications, the solution also enables all connected industrial equipment to be controlled from IoT applications in a smart way.

HMS_web-icon_Security_inverted Secure data at every level
Protecting the data on the journey between the factory floor and the enterprise software is only part of the story. Device and data security is an ever-growing concern in our day to day business. True security must be present at every level in an end to end solution. It would be no benefit to encrypt the data transfer if the value in the payload is already compromised. Data must be handled with care from the point it enters a system until the point it leaves.


Security features of Anybus Edge

  • Firewall, OpenVPN & password protection – Controlling access to the devices is paramount in security. Access is not just about stopping connections but also ignoring them completely – to not be brought down by denial of service attacks.  
  • Root access authentication – Controlling the root access to a system ensures certain routines can never be interfered with.
  • TLS data encryption – Protecting privacy and data integrity with strong encryption means that data gets to where it needs to be without being manipulated.
  • Standard port usage – The device pushes and pulls data utilizing the outbound HTTPS connection enabling easy integration with standard firewalled environments.

HMS_web-icon_Customer benefits_inverted Manage your devices to be ready for the threats of tomorrow
There exists an ever changing landscape today in the world of security. With our new-found access to global libraries of features and software, we must be prepared to maintain the integrity of a system by keeping it up to date and protected from threats. The largest security threat to any system is an out of date device with a known vulnerability. The concept of a fully hardened device that will be able to survive in the field without updates and feature enhancements is already a debunked myth. By providing all levels of update capability, the Edge system is designed to keep you protected into the unknowns of the future.
