Universal control extends security to individual devices

| By Chemical Engineering



The Xage Enforcement Point (XEP) platform extends network security to individual devices to deliver universal access control for industrial operations. XEP enables, for the first time, role-based access control and single sign-on for every device, ranging from legacy control systems to brand-new industrial internet of things (IIoT) machines – even those previously lacking any access-control protection. The XEP platform works with this company’s tamper-proof security fabric, which is deployed at onsite gateways to protect multiple legacy and IIoT devices at once, providing access control, password rotation and managed interactions. Edge-to-cloud monitoring gives administrators visibility into and control of all access attempts, whether successful or not. Any attempts to unplug or bypass the XEP generate management alerts in the fabric. XEP ensures that individual industrial devices, if ever compromised, are isolated individually, rather than in a group of other critical, uncompromised assets. — Xage Inc., Palo Alto, Calif.
