EDMONTON, AB. September 2nd, 2008. MatrikonOPC™ is proud to announce the release of MatrikonOPC Security Gateway. Companies can now deploy out-of-the-box industrial automation system security that easily integrates into their existing systems. Security Gateway makes full use of the OPC Foundation’s OPC Security specification, providing authentication between OPC client and OPC server connections. In addition to DCOM security, users can fully control which OPC clients can browse, add, read and/or write to a tag on a per-user-per tag basis in any OPC DA server.
As companies face security risks in their OPC data architectures, MatrikonOPC Security Gateway has been developed specifically to provide users with peace of mind. It is the secure front-end to new or existing systems and provides added security, even if the OPC Clients do not support the OPC Security Specification.
MatrikonOPC Security Gateway eliminates many security gaps, including unrestricted read-write access for the entire OPC architecture, unauthorized personnel reading production data or even OPC clients crippling the control systems with “device-writes”. Your control systems data has never been safer.
“We are the leader in industrial connectivity. Our customers trust us to provide robust solutions that address the industries big concerns. Today, securing control system data access is the number one challenge many of our customer’s face. MatrikonOPC is committed to delivering the most secure OPC Server platform in the world; Security Gateway delivers on this promise,” says Sean Leonard, Vice President OPC Products, Matrikon.
MatrikonOPC Security Gateway provides a powerful security not seen in the vast majority of OPC products on the market today. It is reliable intuitive security that gives complete control to the user.
Stop unwanted user access now.
