In the modern world, it is not only office computers that connect to the Internet and various networks, but also numerous devices that manage road, transport, industrial, and other infrastructures. The security of such facilities is extremely important, but standard means of protection are not always effective due to extreme operating conditions.
Operating Under Extreme Conditions
The UserGate X1 hardware and software system, unlike other devices in our product line, is designed to work in the most severe conditions: at temperatures from -40°С (-40°F) to +70°С (160°F) and at a relative humidity of 5% to 95%. This model has a compact size, weighs about 2 pounds, and is wall-mounted or DIN-rail mounted. All this makes it possible to use it to protect industrial, transport, and other outdoor facilities.
The operation of the UserGate X1 model is based on the same technologies that are used in UserGate solutions for protecting corporate networks. It can be used to provide firewall functionality (Next-Generation Firewall, or NGFW), protect against attacks (Intrusion Detection and Prevention System, or IDPS), block dangerous scripts and applications, and defend against viruses, in addition to other security features. The model processes traffic at speeds up to 300 Mbps as a firewall and up to 10-15 Mbps when security features are turned on (intrusion prevention, threat protection, etc.).
The platform uses the proprietary operating system UGOS, which guarantees high speed of troubleshooting and the ability to quickly fine-tune the system even for the most complex business needs.
Security for the Industrial Internet of Things
The release of UserGate X is related to the cybersecurity of industrial facilities, a pressing concern in the context of the Industrial Internet of Things development (IIoT).
There has been a constant growth in the number of smart devices serving industrial systems, and many of these fall under the category of non-maintainable items. The functionality of such devices also continues to evolve. At the same time, in most cases, a comprehensive approach is not used to maintain and ensure the security of such facilities. Solutions that are currently being applied do not guarantee comprehensive security and stable infrastructure operation.
Secure VPN Connection
UserGate X1 also supports a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which creates logical networks on top of another network (such as the Internet) to provide a secure connection between offices. In this case, one UserGate server operates as the server while another one acts as a client that initiates the connection. This connection brings company offices in different locations together in a single logical network and applies unified security settings without any extra effort.
Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) is used to create tunnels, and IPSec is used to protect transmitted data.
The updated version of UGOS used in UserGate X1 supports the configuration and management of an automated SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) system. Thus, the administrator can control traffic by setting up rules for detecting, blocking, and logging of events. This allows the core operations of the technological process to be automated while also permitting human control and intervention if needed.
