Switch Security Made Easy

Built into the vendor’s new family of DeltaV smart switches are auto-lockdown security capabilities that allow DeltaV users to automatically lock and unlock the port access of all the switches in the network.

This lockdown will disable all unused network connections (ports) on the switch. “The recommended security practice disables unused connections on network devices,” says Bob Huba, product manager for DeltaV security. “This is usually done using third-party IT software, which creates risk of simply not doing it at all or accidentally disabling a used port. Our DeltaV one-click lockdown function makes managing network security much easier.” The one-click lockdown application automatically scans the DeltaV network to find the DeltaV switches and then allows the user the choice to automatically unlock or lock the switches. Unlocking also enables an auto-relock of the switches in 60 minutes if the user does not perform a manual relock before then.
