Increase your asset utilization, throughput, and quality with Wonderware monitoring


ARC notes that manufacturers can expect benefits of up to 50 percent in reduced costs; up-time improvements of up to 30 percent; and OEE improvements of up to 20 percent when implementing technologies to communicate asset performance indicator information to operators and decision makers in real time.

This ARC whitepaper explains how companies can improve asset utilization by monitoring equipment downtime and analyzing the effectiveness of assets used in the production process.

Security and Connectivity in Industrial Automation

If only we could throw a big security blanket over all operations and rest easy knowing that we can prevent attacks, mistakes, and malfunctions.
If only it could be that simple... but as we become more connected to devices, networks, and software our risk increases. In this month's e-newsletter, we focus on how we can gain protection through upgrading, remote access, managed switches and more.

 We would like to hear from you and how your organization minimizes security risk.
Best regards,

When it comes to security, choose automation software you can trust

What do you look for when you choose an automation software provider? If you are like most people, you have a long list of expectations. Perhaps at the top of that list, you expect automation software to keep your processes and data secure. Ultimately, Wonderware is the only automation software that has the longevity and stability to do just that. With a solid track record, over 25 years in the industry, Wonderware is dedicated to protecting your systems. Take a look at Wonderware System Platform. 
It is a highly secure development & deployment environment that can be configured to control system access and user rights, along with tracking system changes by user. It is also supports Microsoft Integrated Security, SmartCard & other security protocols and methods. Since applications are managed from a central location, you do not have to worry about security issues associated with multiple applications running at multiple sites; this significantly reduces the burden on your IT organization.
Wonderware is the automation software partner you can trust.
See why.

Secure remote access to HMIs, PLCs, and other industrial equipment
Industrial communications must be deployable, secure, and reliable. With Secomea remote access solutions, you can easily monitor, manage, and service equipment. The solution consists of a control unit at the factory (SiteManager) and a Web or Windows based client (LinkManager) for an engineer or end-user. These two components are tied together via a M2M communication server (GateManager) that is available as both a cloud based service and a stand-alone server. Whether it is programming, controls, logging, infrastructure or all of the above, this remote access solution is secure and hassle-free.

Gigabit cyber security solutions

There are three key vulnerabilities of automation networks: 

1)Time-critical applications and data-hungry applications (such as video) have extremely low tolerance for latency. 
2)The unsecure Modbus TCP protocol is widely used in industrial automation. 
3)Non-industrial-grade cyber security devices can't withstand harsh industrial operating conditions, and will malfunction in those settings.

Moxa offers a router/switch solution to minimize these security risks. The EDR-810 is a highly integrated industrial multiport secure router with Firewall/NAT/VPN and managed Layer 2 switch functions. It is designed for Ethernet security applications in sensitive remote control or monitoring networks
