In addition to the IPsec secure encryption standard, the FL MGuard security routers from Phoenix Contact now also support OpenVPN.
With this protocol as a client, the devices now support two secure encryption standards. These each have special characteristics with an almost identical level of security. This means that mixed operation with both standards used simultaneously is an option, as well as hub-and-spoke, where data is transferred from one VPN tunnel to another.
The security routers are connected to the OpenVPN remote maintenance centers. The transmission standard can be combined with all other technologies associated with the security routers, such as OPC Inspector and CIFS Integrity Monitoring. OpenVPN is available for the devices as of firmware 8.3.
