Support for Industrial Protocols in DPI / IDS
We are fairly recent Sophos partner, our business is in industrial automation and control systems customers.
Security for industrial automation, critical infrastructure, and industry 4.0 is very much a hot topic right now.
We would like to see some development to include capability for Deep Packet Inspection and control of industrial control protocols such as:
OPC Classic (DCOM / RPC)
Inclusion of rules for these into IDS would also be welcomed.
A number of vendors approaching us are starting to get into this specialist area of the market and it would be great to see Sophos offering an industrial orientated product.
This could feasibly be a specialist feature set licence for the UTM / XG to provide the functionality required for industrial environments.
