Make the oil & gas industry a safer place
The oil and gas industry are facing unprecedented challenges in the 21st century. From volatile market conditions to increasing environmental regulations, from aging infrastructure to cyber threats, the sector needs to adapt and innovate to stay competitive and sustainable. One of the key factors for success is having a reliable, secure, and future-proof network infrastructure that can support the complex and demanding operations of oil and gas production.

Belden is a global leader in signal transmission and security solutions for the oil and gas industry. Belden’s products are engineered to withstand the harsh and hazardous environments of oil and gas applications, such as extreme temperatures, corrosive chemicals, explosive atmospheres, dust, moisture, vibration, and electromagnetic interference. The products are certified to meet the highest standards of quality, safety and performance.

The products are also designed to enable seamless connectivity and communication across the oil and gas network, from field devices to control rooms to cloud services.
Various protocols and technologies, such as Ethernet, wireless, fiber optic, serial, HART, PROFIBUS, PROFINET, Modbus and OPC UA are supported.

Secure infrastructure for future challenges
Belden’s solutions are not only compatible with existing systems, but also ready for future opportunities. They are compatible with emerging trends and innovations, such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and digital transformation. These key future trends mean, that cyber security is taking on an increasingly central role. The security experts of macmon secure are part of Belden Inc. Since 2003 they have been offering a manufacturer-agnostic solution with macmon Network Access Control (NAC), which protects heterogenic networks from unauthorized access by cybercriminals. macmon NAC is a central component in IT security: Industrial corporations receive a complete network overview and can detect unknown devices in their network thanks to NAC.
The proven solution is easy to implement and enables effective control of network access.
Thanks to the “Compliance” function, the security levels of authorized devices are continuously checked, and automatic alarming about insecure devices is performed.
In that way, even a heterogenic and geographically distributed network, such as in the oil and gas industry, can be monitored and updated to the latest security standards.
Access by third-party devices, for example at a network socket, can be prevented. Hardware and software solutions thus interlock in order to ensure high availability, reliability and efficiency of the network.
