Secure remote access for industrial networks

Belden has announced that it now offers a simple and secure way to provide remote network access, programming and diagnostics with the Hirschmann Secure Remote Access Solution.

The solution allows customers to remotely access their sites in order to troubleshoot and fix problems. At the core of the 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 on running PCs or the Hirschmann GECKO connects the remote devices to the cloud.

The solution is suited to the machine building, automotive and food and beverage industries, which often need remote access to plants and machinery around the world.
