A data center service provider located in U.S.A. wants to enhance their cybersecurity. Data centers has been frequently attacked and result in data loss and significant penalties. Power sources that supply the server rooms have communication interfaces that have been identified as vulnerable to cyberattacks.
To manage security risks efficiently, the corporation must perform a monthly vulnerability scan to prevent possible attacks and urge device manufacturers to take immediate action when vulnerability is identified.
Cyberthreats are not the only problem that IT departments face. OT (operational technology) devices in data centers such as switchgear, PDU, UPS etc., have to be protected. Circuit breakers, relay, and meters all have communication interfaces. There might be thousands of such devices. This makes monitoring and firmware updates troublesome.
To reduce the probability of being hacked and suffering financial losses, any network node should have embedded security functions to ramp up device security. Moxa’s MGateMB3170 and MB3660 protocol gateways were designed based on the IEC 62443 standard, ensuring cybersecurity is embedded within the device.
Frequently perform vulnerability scans to ensure the latest patch can be obtained by users for critical applications that can be subjected to cyberattacks. Moxa’s MXconfig has an easy-to-use graphic user interface and our MCC, a CLI tool that simplifies configurations. Makes it easier for both OT and IT users to make mass firmware updates.
