Schneider Electric recommends users include the following measures in their SCADA strategies:

Secure physical and network interfaces to the ClearSCADA system.

Deploy suitably configured firewalls between network segments to limit access to ports and protocols appropriately.

Deploy VPN technology with secure authentication on any externally accessible networks.

Configure and audit user security to reduce the risk of a denial of service.

For critical accounts use ClearSCADA security policy configuration to disable invalid logon count and delayed lockout time and to use logon throttling.
