Protects Modbus systems from Internet threats

PortBloque™ ("port block") E is a Modbus Ethernet firewall to protect serial control devices from unwanted Internet traffic. It performs deep packet inspection (DPI) on Modbus traffic to ensure that systems receive only the commands required for normal operations and not accidental or unauthorized commands that could lead to harmful consequences.

Two firewalls in one
PortBloque E is really two firewalls in one. It performs standard firewall functions plus advanced Modbus filtering. System and traffic activity can be sent to a syslog server for later analysis.
Evades port scanning
Stealth mode makes Modbus ports invisible from sniffing. Any probing is completely ignored, as if the packet were lost in space.
Converts Ethernet to serial 
The purpose-built firewall positions at the entry point to serial devices and supports an RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 connection. It automatically converts Modbus TCP/IP to Modbus RTU/ASCII. No need to change the Modbus network or applications.
Filters anything and everything

Modbus filtering is easy!
Simply enter the Modbus device IDs and select the types of Modbus function codes you want those devices to receive.

You can select your own (user-defined) function codes too.  
By defining register and value ranges, you can prevent the control device from being put into an undesired or unstable mode.
You can also control the amount of time to wait before a Modbus command can be repeated.
