Product Overview

The Shield is a dedicated industrial security appliance that segregates industrial assets from the network, monitors network traffic and applies security measures in order to protect the industrial asset, functioning as a dedicated network safeguard for connected assets. 

It’s an innovative, stand-alone, palm-size network device providing highly secured connectivity for high-value physical assets that are deployed in industrial verticals such as manufacturing, smart facilities, agriculture and energy.

The Shield protects the connected asset from attacks originating from the network and protects the network from attacks originating from a potentially compromised asset by isolating and defending both ends.

Deployment of the Shield does not require modification nor configuration changes and does not impact customer operations or other security measures.
