Hirschmann MCS is extending its definition of handling mobile machines without risk by a new security feature. Now controllers of the <link _blank internal-link internen link im aktuellen>cSCALE series also excel with SECURE mechanisms that provide comprehensive protection from manipulation and unauthorized access.
Hirschmann MCS <link _blank internal-link internen link im aktuellen>controller solutions are now more secure: thanks to encryption of the application and installation, plus a controlled update process that is recorded in the controller. This is accomplished with the AES-256 bit algorithm (<link http: searchsecurity.techtarget.com definition advanced-encryption-standard _blank external-link-new-window externen link in neuem>Advanced Encryption Standard). A so-called block cipher, it provides maximum protection against unauthorized access and manipulation. Even the U.S. government has adopted this system for safeguarding top-secret documents.
The benefits for customers and suppliers are obvious: now software products can be unambiguously identified on defined hardware. Unwanted software is blocked by the SECURE mechanisms. The protection mechanisms can also be enabled for field upgrades performed using a USB stick. As a result, <link _blank internal-link internen link im aktuellen>cSCALE controllers are now both safe and secure.
