Rockwell and Cisco release security design guidance ahead of IoTWF 2015

06 December 2015

Rockwell Automation has published new tested, validated resources with strategic alliance partner Cisco, aimed at helping the automation industry address the security concerns associated with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Free, and offered now through a dedicated web page, users will find the latest security best practices, guides, and insights for industrial enterprises to implement networks; all of which follow a defense-in-depth approach that utilises industry standards. These architectures address the dynamic security practices for both information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT), which are essential in managing risk from the plant to the 'Connected Enterprise'.

“The Connected Enterprise holds the key to unlocking the potential of the Internet of Things to offer the enhanced levels of efficiency and productivity needed to meet the challenges of the rapidly growing global market,” says Neil Enright, regional sales director, Middle East, Rockwell Automation. “It’s about connecting the people, processes and technology to achieve better productivity, sustainability and economic performance.”

The Middle East is widely recognised as a rapidly emerging market, supported especially by the GCC in its drive for industrial diversification from the traditional oil and gas sector. With Dubai set to host the leading innovators in business, government and academia at the premier Internet of Things (IoT) thought leadership forum - IoTWF 2015 - between the 6th and 8th of December 2015, Enright believes it is an exciting time for the region: “The Middle East is committed to broadening its industrial base at a time when new facilities will give it an opportunity to compete on the world stage if it is able to take advantage of Connected Enterprise principles to embrace the Industrial IoT.”

During the Cisco hosted IoT World Forum at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Rockwell Automation executives will highlight how the scalable implementation of Industrial IoT technologies through an integrated control and information system – The Connected Enterprise – delivers the potential of real-time analytics for plant-wide optimisation.
