Prevents unauthorized access to the network
London, UK (July 2018) – The range of RJ45 jack blockout devices from Panduit, an industry leader in industrial network infrastructure, IoT, plant floor and control panel solutions for over 60 years, ensures the safety and security of a network infrastructure. Compatible with most RJ45 openings, the blockout device snaps into the RJ45 opening and can only be released using a special removal tool, thus preventing unauthorized access to the network, and saving time and money associated with data security breaches, network downtime, repair and hardware replacement.
Comments Hayo Volker Hasenfus, Director Industrial Automation and IoT EMEA, Panduit: “The convergence of enterprise IT and the industrial network means a hacker could wreak havoc in a company’s ability to manufacture. Therefore, it is important to adhere to best practices to build a bullet-proof security scheme when converging IT and plant floor networks. This in-depth defence scheme should cover everything from protocols to port physical security.”
Blockout devices can be utilized in any data application that requires RJ45 type connection. They are available in eight colour options to simplify visual identification. Devices feature a compact, low profile design, and can be installed without interfering with adjacent jacks, plugs or connectors, even in high-density applications.
