Defender Series

Defender Series

Regardless of whether your organization is large or small, today's manufacturing environment faces escalating security challenges.  Attackers focused on compromising singular computing platforms or full scale control system networks and assets are a present and growing concern. 


The Defender Series of products from Dynics are designed to provide a layer of protection from standalone computers to full scale control systems.  Keeping unwanted or non-designated devices such as USB flash drives, tethered phones, wireless devices from being plugged into or accessed by a standalone PC at the edge, providing safe and secure remote access, controlling supplier access to equipment, deep packet inspection of industrial protocols, network address translation, and a host of other capabilities are all a part of the Dynics Defense-in-Depth strategies we offer our customers.
