Belden Provides Comprehensive Network Protection with EAGLE One Industrial Security Router
ST. LOUIS --(Business Wire)--
Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for
mission-critical applications, has added a new industrial security
router, the EAGLE One, to its global security portfolio. Designed with
customer feedback in mind, the EAGLE One builds on the industry-leading
technology of Belden's existing EAGLE
family and offers a unique combination of features to advance data
security in industrial automation. It hardens industrial systems against
network incidents and cyberattacks, improving operational security,
reliability and performance.
"As we continue to evolve our security platform, we asked our customers
about their needs and challenges, and built a device that can be used in
nearly all industrial situations, including extremely hazardous
industries like oil and gas operations," said Frank Williams, senior
product manager for security at Belden. "We think of the EAGLE One as
the Swiss army knife of security routers. Whether you're looking to
upgrade or enhance your existing security features, or even take the
first step, this device will help guard networks from accidental network
events and unforeseen security threats."
Unlike other industrial security routers, the EAGLE One combines many
key features, including:
Capacity to withstand the harshest industrial conditions in almost any
environment, especially areas dealing with explosive and hazardous
materials, such as oil and gas, power transmission and distribution,
and transportation companies.
Use at extreme temperatures, from -40�C to +70�C (-40�F to 158�F).
Compliance with global standards and certifications, including the
United States Occupational
Safety & Health Administration's Class I, Division 2 hazardous
location conditions, Europe's ATEX
directives and the Germanischer
Ease of integration through a unique "firewall learning mode" that
reduces traditional installation risks, such as network interruptions
or configuration errors.
Advanced redundancy features for maximum security, including layer 2
and layer 3 functions that ensure switchover to a standby device in
the event of a fault or failure.
Ability to configure settings offline to eliminate contact with a live
Reduction in operating costs due to lower power input.
The EAGLE One benefits from the existing EAGLE20 software - and cyber
security insights gathered from its use over the past decade - which has
ultimately informed and strengthened the development of Belden's future
"When you look at what EAGLE One is capable of - it can meet the needs
of the industrial market for years to come," said Security Program
Manager Oliver Kleineberg. "We also designed it with our existing
portfolio in mind; to ensure those who may be looking to upgrade their
system would have a seamless transition by being able to simply drop the
EAGLE One into place."
