Achieving Network Security for Industrial Automation

In order to optimize operational efficiency for modern industrial automation systems, network convergence between OT and IT is imperative. While streamlining your OT/IT networks unlocks the potential of your industrial systems, it also raises network security concerns. It is a particular concern for those OT systems that used to be air gapped but must still protect network communications without interrupting operations. As a leader in industrial networking for over 30 years, Moxa is committed to developing secure and reliable networking solutions that proactively identify and mitigate cyberthreats in OT environments. To realize this commitment, Moxa strictly follows secure-by-design practices, utilizes distributed OT intrusion prevention systems capabilities, and provides a wide array of rugged networking portfolios to perfect defending industrial applications in depth.

Visualize Your Device and Network Security Status

Visibility empowers you to secure your industrial control systems. Moxa’s complete product portfolio, including network management software, allows you to centrally manage your networking devices with real-time visibility. The portfolio secures remote assets, which simplifies remote maintenance via cloud services, and the security dashboard allows you to monitor and manage security events from our industrial cybersecurity solutions.

Network Segmentation

Establish Zones and Conduits

  • VLAN: Moxa’s devices help administrators restrict users access to only data and parts of the network necessary for them to perform their responsibilities.
  • Firewalls: Moxa’s devices help administrators establish conduits in the network to only allow permitted traffic and packets to transfer from one zone to another.
  • NAT: Moxa’s devices help administrators establish a private local zone to hide internal network information from external probing.

Network Security Control

  • VLAN ID or MAC Addresses: Moxa’s devices only allow users to access data and networks based on their roles.
  • IP Addresses and Ports: Moxa’s devices only allow permitted traffic on the network.
  • Deep Packet Inspection: Moxa’s devices check the content of each packet payload to ensure only approved content is transmitted on the networks.
Real-time Network Visibility

With the EDR-G9010 Series industrial secure routers, you can flexibly design defense-in-depth security architecture by leveraging its all-in-one firewall/NAT/VPN/switch functions. Furthermore, it features OT deep packet inspection technology to provide advanced network protection.


With the security-hardened Ethernet switches, you can segregate traffic between different network segments using a VLAN and utilize Access Control Lists (ACL) at the port level, helping you improve VLAN security when data enters your networks through Ethernet switches.

Secure Remote Access

Defense Against Threats

  • Moxa’s devices prevent exploitation of known vulnerabilities on Windows systems and help protect legacy Windows devices that are unable to install a patch due to lack of support.
  • Moxa’s devices can identify cyberattacks and contain them within certain zones.
  • Moxa’s devices can identify cyberthreats and notify administrators by utilizing IPS pattern matching.
Real-time Network Visibility

The IEC-G102-BP Series and IEF-G9010 Series industrial cybersecurity solutions protect your critical assets from cyberattacks by defending your networks at the zone and cell level. Watch the video to learn more.
