Tofino Argon - Control Network Security Appliance
Posted on Tuesday, March 04, 2014
Kentron's policy of partnering with 'best of breed' manufactures continues with the association with Byres Security. Byres are renouned as world leaders in industrial network security, and this is born out by the Tofino Argon security appliance. Designed by control engineers, for control engineers, Tofino is easy to understand, configure, test and deploy. If a technician can configure a PLC then Tofino will be intuative in terms of configuration. Loadable security modules (LSM) allow firewall rules and functions to be tailored to your specific requirements. Firewall rules can be created and then tested with the unique 'test' feature which allows rules to be implimented on a live network, but without actually effecting the network. From the results of testing and the feedback suggestions offered, changes can be made (and again tested) before implimenting Tofino Argon as operational. Kentron Systems are proud to be associated with Byres Security - supplier of a truly unique product, and with a reputation for first class design and excellent service.
