SCADA Cyber Network Security from Paqworks

Supplier: Paqworks by Madison Technologies

Protecting electricity, water, gas, communications, sewrage and transport SCADA systems from 'cyber' attack is one of the most important issues affecting the SCADA industry today. Paqworks has a complete solution to protect SCADA networks.


Paqworks located in Sydney has a new SCADA cyber security device designed to secure SCADA networks from hackers, viruses, worms and other malicious attacks. Electricity, water, gas, communications, sewerage and transport are now subject to physical and ‘cyber’ attacks which can have catastrophic ramifications.

SCADA systems were created with the intention of remote monitoring, control and safety of essential services. SCADA systems have been traditionally built without security in mind. Ironically security is one of the most current issues in the SCADA industry today.

The AdsTec Cyber Security firewall has been designed to lock and control your SCADA networks. It is important to monitor, separate and control interconnected networks. The firewall has a large range of impressive security features which enable a complete security solution.

Cut & Stop

The Ethernet uplink can be physically disconnected through a 24 V input. This safely rules out intentional or unintentional external manipulation.


If a rule is violated an alarm signal is reported to a control centre, measures can be automated directly.

Event Logbook

An event logbook with retentive memory stores all events, even when the firewall is disconnected from the power supply. The event logbook is password protected.


Built in display can be used to quickly configure basic functions. It is possible to obtain a system analysis directly from the display

Managed Switch

Networks can be segmented and secured from outside access. It is possible to connect multiple networks or terminals into one firewall. Ports can be switched off individually to prevent unorthorised data traffic monitoring.

Remote Access

Service access is via a secure port. Connecting to the firewall is possible from the new Paqworks Cybertec GPRS/3G SCADA modem.
