Below are presented remote access devices, with plug-n-play VPN secure connections, that aim at  remote programming, industrial data collection, Asset remote management (machines, equipment, devices etc.) 

Secomea, a field agent that permits almost plug-n-play secure remote programming access


Secure remote access solution for  Maintenance, After Sales, remote programming of PLC , HMI, Scada client-servers.
Setting up the whole connection is a plug-n-play procedure :
- one port connected to the local isolated industrial network ( PLC etc.)
- one port connected to the non-secure "office network" that has Internet access ( ADSL or mobile connection)
- The  field agent does the rest by securely connecting to Secomea cloud (or your company cloud) via  VPN ( no user configuration needed, apart username / password)
- You can access stations ( PLCs, PCs, DataPanels) in the remote industrial network, via a free special VPN client application on your PC.
