Courtesy: WestermoWestermo's WeConfig 1.4 is a network configuration management tool designed to allow users to save time and costs when configuring large and complex industrial data communication networks. WeConfig 1.4 enables the configuration of these networks to be implemented quickly and also features enhanced functionality to bolster cybersecurity. WeConfig is also designed to simplify the initial installation and configuration of single or multiple Westermo devices as well as provide ongoing maintenance through the life of the network. Once devices are configured and the network commissioned, a back-up of all the device configuration files can be easily made and stored. In the event that a switch or router needs to be replaced in service, the saved configuration can be downloaded to the new unit, resulting in a faster network repair, helping to save time for maintenance engineers.

WeConfig 1.4 also enables users to configure and maintain cyber security features on devices delivered by the Westermo operating system (WeOS). Powerful spoofing protection features such as MAC address filters and the configuration of IEEE802.1x port access authentication can be easily deployed and maintained. This helps to prevent unauthorized access to the network. It is also possible to scan and then harden the security features of switches with factory default passwords or which use unsecure protocols.
