New Hirschmann Combined Hardware and Software Solution Can Be Installed with Minimal IT Knowledge, Enables Secure and Remote Network Control
Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, now offers a simple and secure way to provide remote network access, programming and diagnostics with the new Hirschmann Secure Remote Access Solution. This combined hardware and software system helps companies leverage the increased connection of devices brought on by the Industrial Internet of Things. The Secure Remote Access Solution is a partnership between Belden and Secomea.
The Secure Remote Access Solution allows customers to remotely access their sites in order to troubleshoot and fix problems. At the core of the Secure Remote Access Solution is Secomea’s GateManager, a cloud service which enables customers to connect their operator stations to their remote devices. LinkManager software running on PCs or mobile devices connects operator stations to the cloud. SiteManager software running on PCs or the Hirschmann GECKO connects the remote devices to the cloud.
“The Secure Remote Access Solution provides a protected cloud system that can be set up with minimal assistance,” said Mark Cooksley, product manager. “Permanent IP addresses are not required, and there is no need to reconfigure firewalls. This enables secure access for remote programming and diagnostics without disrupting existing systems.”
“Hirschmann has a strong reputation for delivering products with unique security features, and since Secomea recently passed a major security audit performed by an independent security organization in Germany, we see a perfect match between our organizations,” said Michael Ferdinandsen, CEO of Secomea.
The simple set-up, ease of use and secure technology make the Secure Remote Access Solution ideal for the machine building, automotive and food and beverage industries, which often need remote access to plants and machinery around the world. Remote access reduces the need for travel and allows staff to work more efficiently by handling multiple systems simultaneously.
