The days of trying to build and scale OT networks with Traditional IT solutions are gone. Incorporating a mixture of IPSEC tunnels, port forwarding, private APN's, cell modems, Cisco, Fortinet, Palo Alto, and various other IT tools have proven to be overly complex and expensive.
The Tosibox platform has taken all of the complexity of these traditional networking tools and automated them in 10 seconds. Reduce costs, complexity, and cybersecurity risks of traditional networking through 3 simple steps explained below.
Step 1 - Platform
The Tosibox platform is your OT networks central management hub. From your platform you can:
- Create always on VPN connections to any on prem. or hosted environment for data collection
- Manage user access down to the port, protocol, IP, or MAC ID level
- Time restrict user network access
- View a real-time user audit log
- Build access groups for simplified data, site, and user management
- Manage data connections to multiple hosted applications
The Platform is a virtual machine that can be hosted in Azure, AWS, The Tosibox Data Center, or any other cloud or on prem. environment. It is your platform, you host it where you choose.
Step 2 - Sites
Site installations with Tosibox edge nodes are as plug-and-go as it gets. Clip on din-rail, provide power, plug into any ethernet capable device or switch, and provide internet. Once installed, you have built in:
-Automated Firewall for network segmentation and device security
-Taken away static IP's and closed off inbound ports
-Layer 2 and 3 capable point-to-point VPN connectivity
-Remote access for your team or vendors through physical-first MFA
-Site to Cloud VPN tunnels built automatically through checkboxes
-Auto-failover between multiple internet sources (ethernet, WiFi, cellular, and/or satellite)
-Protocol agnostic, Layer 2 capable platform allows you to connect any ethernet capable devices and speak any protocol you choose.
-Have multiple sites communicate on the same network through checkboxes in the platform
Step 3 - Users
Provide user access to your OT network through physical-first multi factor authentication. This takes traditional MFA (username and password) to a higher level by limiting network access to a specific device that has been serialized and approved. Adding users to your network is as simple as generating a serialization, sending it to the user, and checking boxes of what you want them to have access to.
-Access provided through physical USB keys or software serializations for PC’s, Android, or IOS devices.
-All user access connections are through 256-bit AES encrypted VPN tunnels
-Access can be provided via Layer 2 or Layer 3 connections
-Can be restricted down to the port, protocol, MAC ID, or IP level
-User access can also be time restricted
-Access can also be provided or withdrawn immediately
-Users can have access to an unlimited number of sites or devices
-Devices can have an unlimited number of users accessing that device

Minimize Network Downtime Through Redundancy
Tosibox edge nodes can come ethernet/WiFi/Cellular (dual-sim integrated modem), and Satellite capable. We can select the best fit based on your application and network requirements.
Within the edge node settings is the capability to set the WAN priority. This is configured with a drop down menu to automatically fail-over between multiple internet sources.
Gone are the days where you are tied to one carrier or internet source. Setting up fully-redundant networks through the Tosibox platform has been simplified and automated.
- First Internet Source: iNet LTE Cellular
- Second Internet Source: Verizon Cellular
- Third Internet Source: Satellite Modem
- The Edge Node will automatically fail-over between carriers to decrease downtime and will also rely on the higher priority sources as first choice.
Capable Cellular Carriers:
-TosiSim Quad Carrier Sim (More Info in images below)
-All main cellular carriers including iNet LTE
Tosibox and WAGO - Creating solutions for the future
WAGO and Tosibox have been closely collaborating since 2018. At that time, Tosibox was transforming the lock hardware into a software product, and around the same time, WAGO incorporated Docker technology into its programs. This allowed WAGO's automation technology to be seen as a potential first commercial platform for the TOSIBOX® Lock for Container solution. In 2019, at the SPS exhibition in Germany, this solution was already presented as the result of their collaboration, as stated by WAGO's...
