In many traditionally grown production networks, the focus is on free data exchange across all components and systems. However, if all paths are open, viruses and malware can spread unhindered in the entire network. To prevent this, it is recommended to segment the production network into manageable logical units – for example with the industrial firewall mbNETFIX from MB connect line.
