NPort: have you enabled all security features?


Using a COM-to-Ethernet converter, it is possible to collect the data from such peripheral devices as energy meters, or to manage such facility equipment and CNC machines. As the industrial Internet of Things develops, more and more devices and systems are being designed to operate based on IP protocols. Cybersecurity is essential more than ever, as all devices are now connected through a network either way. To ensure security, Serial-to-Ethernet converters must have a bunch of features that need to be set properly.


User authentication
Verification of the user data when logging into the device

Data integrity and confidentiality
Encryption of the connection when configuring or managing the device

Network access control and authentication
Verification of devices that are permitted to access the network and can communicate with other devices

Vulnerability tracking
The cybersecurity department of the manufacturer promptly responses to reported vulnerabilities


Here is a checklist of measures that must be taken when configuring serial device servers.









All NPort converters are regularly subject to vulnerability tests, and , if necessary, MOXA releases a new firmware right away.


For ensuring cybersecurity, not only key components of the system are crucial, but also the facility security management process that is properly arranged. Nevertheless, the great step forward is to start using the security features to the maximum.

Choose the products that comply with IEC 62443-4-2 standard

It is very essential to choose a converter that will ensure the high level of security. The devices of NPort and MGate series provide different security features that conform to IEC 62443.
