Industrial HiVision 7.0 Reduces Risk and Maximizes Uptime with
Efficient Device Configuration and Instant Visibility to Network Health
ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for
mission-critical applications, has released the latest version of its
Hirschmann network management software. Industrial HiVision 7.0
improves productivity by now allowing the simultaneous configuration of
hundreds of SNMP-enabled devices from any manufacturer. A new,
customizable Network Dashboard provides instant visibility to key
network health indicators, making it easy to take corrective or
preventative measures. The result is improved availability and security
for industrial networks.
In many industrial facilities, Ethernet networks are growing and
changing quickly, and it is increasingly difficult to manage and secure
them. The SANS 2016 State of Industrial Control System Security Survey
indicates that 67 percent of industrial organizations perceive severe or
high levels of threat to control systems, up from 43 percent in 2015.
The report also indicates that planned industrial control system
security improvements are behind schedule.
“Network security is top of mind at industrial facilities worldwide,”
said Mark Cooksley, product manager at Belden. “Industrial HiVision is
an important tool for improving it. The latest version builds on an
already rich set of security functionalities to make it easier to
control and take action on factors that impact security. These include
accurate device configurations and instant visibility to security status
indicators that can be readily seen and acted on using the new Network
The enhanced capabilities of Industrial HiVision 7.0 allow industrial
Improve uptime and security by always knowing the status of their
network without having to look through multiple network maps to spot
problems. The Network Dashboard displays key performance indicators,
such as devices with warning or error statuses, security information,
and the top 10 worst-performing devices by response time. Network
managers can customize it to meet their specific network supervision
needs by adding or removing widgets on the indicators of their choice.
Simultaneously configure hundreds of SNMP-enabled industrial devices,
from any manufacturer, not just those from Hirschmann and GarrettCom.
Industrial manufacturers can use this feature to configure devices
both during commissioning and live operation. This new capability
improves engineering productivity, as well as configuration accuracy,
a key factor for high network performance and protection.
