What are the cybersecurity enhancements of the Gigabit Network Card (NETWORK-M2)?


  • Latest encryption algorithms with strong keys
  • Only secure protocols enabled by default
  • Firmware is signed and encrypted, and will not boot if tampered with

Password management

  • Configurable requirements for password complexity
  • Certificate based authentication in machine to machine connections – no username/password information saved on the client machine, separate certificates for each protocol

Performance and design
