EAGLE40 Next-Generation Industrial Firewall

The multiport EAGLE40 next-generation firewall offers a comprehensive cybersecurity solution to maximize uptime in today’s stringent automated environments.


Evolving alongside data transfer demands, the EAGLE40 includes more port Options with increased bandwidth and encryption capabilities.

Supporting both OSPF dynamic routing and VRRP router redundancy, the industrial firewall EAGLE40 is an economically-sound approach to maximize uptime, regardless of network throughput.

  • Ensure heightened performance capabilities with more port options, each at one gigabit per second (Gbit/s) bandwidth.
  • Protect against physical and virtual threats with ruggedized housing and Stateful and Deep Packet Inspection (SPI/DPI) modules.
  • Gain unrivaled system configurability for all skill levels with a comprehensive graphical user Interface and multi-layer encryption capabilities.
  • Three Gigabit Ethernet ports with up to 1 Gbit/s throughput
  • HiSecOS with SPI and DPI capabilities
  • Firewall Learning Mode for rule configuration
  • IPsec VPN for secure data encryption
  • Dynamic-routing support with OSPF and router redundancy VRRP
  • Graphical HTML 5 web user interface
  • Operating temperature range of -40 °C to +70 °C
  • Convection-cooled metal housing
  • Meets process automation standards: ISA-12.12.-01 Class 1 Div. 2 – Haz. Loc, ATEX-95 Category 3G (Zone 2)
  • Assists with cybersecurity regulations: NERC CIP, IEC 62443, NIST
  • Flexible management and monitoring: Industrial HiVision, Tripwire Enterprise, Tripwire Log Center
  • Hardware for further DPI modules, advanced intrusion and anomaly detection capabilities (via future software upgrades)

Cybersecurity is a top priority in today’s digital world. The Hirschmann EAGLE40 firewall was specifically designed to meet the critical demands of industrial and process automation environments. The device includes software optimized for DPI applications to meet a variety of industrial protocols. Thanks to continuous software upgrades, additional protocols and advanced intrusion detection capabilities will be added in the future. This makes the versatile and highly configurable firewall especially ideal across OT teams with various experience levels and skillsets.

With a convection-cooled metal housing and an extensive operating temperature range, the EAGLE40 supports the movement towards IT/OT convergence by providing a factory floor solution without compromising network uptime. Thus, the EAGLE40 is optimally suited to implement a zones and conduits concept according to ISA/IEC 62443, enabling a defense-in-depth network architecture.

Built to withstand harsh industrial environments, the EAGLE40 next-generation firewall is backed by robust industry approvals and infrastructure compliance standards appropriately suited for the oil and gas, as well as water and wastewater industries.

The extensive bandwidth and data encryption support also make the EAGLE40 an ideal firewall solution for:

  • Machine building
  • General manufacturing settings
  • Use across security networks
