Belden Inc. is adding new functionality to version 3.0 of its Hirschmann Security Operating System (HiSecOS) for the EAGLE20/30 firewalls, providing a single, secure network product.

HiSecOS 3.0 now offers enhanced security features for customers using the EAGLE20/30 firewalls, including Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and Firewall Learning Mode. The flexibility of the EAGLE20/30 firewalls continues to enable many configuration options, which eliminates the need for multiple devices, and saves customers space and costs.

Vinod Rana, product manager at Hirschmann, says: “The EAGLE20/30 firewalls deliver unrivalled advanced multiport devices that combine added security features into one flexible solution. With HiSecOS 3.0, users can customise firewall rules with one click of a button using the Firewall Learning Mode to ensure peace of mind. The single device solution is the only firewall that combines the level of security through DPI with the redundancy and flexibility of its customer-specified network interfaces.”

The EAGLE20/30 family is well suited for systems integrators, engineers and plant operators looking for a one-device option to secure their network, reduce network risks and maximise uptime.

Rana says: “The industrial firewalls, paired with HiSecOS 3.0, not only allow different types of packets to go through the network, but also goes into the packet itself using new DPI functionality, sees what it is supposed to do, and, based on rules configured, allows the packet to go through or discards it.”

The multiport firewall is built-to-order with various configuration options for up to eight ports, including Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet and symmetrical high-speed digital subscriber line (SHDSL).

In 2016, Belden will add LTE(4G)/3G cellular interfaces to the EAGLE20/30, to enable the customer to add redundant wired and/or wireless connections.
