Phoenix Contact - mGuard Security routers make OT networks secure

Phoenix Contact's new Gigabit Security routers combine proven mGuard security technology with new high-performance hardware. Our Security-Routers are deployed to protect industrial networks from unauthorized access or malware intrusion.

The new Security-Routers have an increased data throughput of nearly 1000 Mbit/s creating a high level of security without speed limitations. The proven mGuard security technology enables the control and protection of communications within production networks. The new routers are functionally compatible with current mGuard Security Routers as much as possible. This makes it easy to use in existing applications. The FL mGuard 2102 is recommended for machine and plant builders who want fast integration into the production network in addition to secure remote maintenance. The FL mGuard 4302, in addition to securing the OT network infrastructure, also enables the efficient management of many mGuard security routers within a factory. Security router FL mGuard 2100/4300
