PCSF Design Challenge
Meeting the network connectivity and security needs of the Upstream Facility Control System reference architecture, Enterasys proposes a policy-based network allowing secured access, role-based communication rules, and distributed enforced security. Modern process control networks are deploying standards-based Ethernet and TCP/IP communications. While this is an opportunity for improved process through the use of advanced applications, risks associated with standards-based technologies in the process environment must be controlled. Enterasys offers an open-systems architecture with simple to use policy administration and fully distributed policy enforcement to assure the security and availability of mission-critical process communications.
