Implementing Industrial Cybersecurity on Your Serial-to-Ethernet Devices


Serial-to-Ethernet devices are capable of remotely managing industrial edge devices, such as power meters, or factory equipment, such as CNC machines. As the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has accelerated the adoption of IP-enabled industrial applications, the importance of information security is being stressed more than ever because systems are now all connected. Device security measures should include a number of built-in attributes and need to be implemented when serial-to-Ethernet devices are in operation.
