Effective August 22, 2013 Hirschmann EAGLE 20/30 multiport firewall devices will ship with the new Hirschmann Security Operating System (HiSecOS).
The new HiSecOS improves firewall and routing performance for edge and core industrial security applications.
Access control lists, firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) web interface are just a few of the usability improvements. The Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) is a vendor-neutral device discovery protocol, as define by the IEEE 802.1ab standard. LLDP permits the discovery of non-Hirschmann devices. Additional features include Device Security Status Indication and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) configuration change logging.
The HiSecOS is compliant with IEEE 1686 (standard for substation intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) Cyber Security capabilities) and configuration changes via the logging of protocols to the audit trail are now possible with SNMP.
HiSecOS software and installation instructions for EAGLE 20/30 multiport firewalls can be downloaded free of charge by visiting our website at
