3 Ways to Use Industrial Firewalls for Defense in Depth

Dr. Oliver Kleineberg 06.01.2016

An important best practice for industrial security is implementing a Defense in Depth (DID) strategy. With this approach, multiple defense layers are implemented, in contrast to just one defense mechanism, such as a single firewall.

Zones and Conduits are integral to a DID strategy is Zones and Conduits (defined ISA IEC 62443 standard) to segment the network into device zones with similar security requirements and use conduits to restrict communication between zones.
