Key Advantages for Factory IT Acceptance
By balancing both security and ease of use, Ewon creates best-in-class remote solutions that work for both users and IT managers.
As no incoming connections are made to the device, there is no need to change firewall settings, routing policies, open ports or add exceptions. Little to no IT involvement is required. Ewon devices initiate a VPN tunnel to their Industrial Cloud VPN Servers by making an outbound connection across the factory LAN using ports that are commonly enabled (HTTPS port 443 or UDP port 1194).
Thanks to the use of a Key Switch or HMI button, to the Ewon device's digital input, the end user keeps full local control of whether the device is remotely accessible or not.
Along with the Username/Password, you can add a second layer of security with a key sent by SMS that changes at each login.
