Every industrial plant today requires a secure remote management solution. In order to perform maintenance or monitoring tasks, access to the control systems has to be planned, regulated and made available for employees as well as external technicians. A system needs to be easy to handle despite strong user authentication or isolated machine and plant networks. A consistent track record in a digital maintenance book, access concepts featuring various user roles and user groups, time control and the integration of machines and plants of all ages are also indispensable for an industrial remote management system.
se.MIS™ fulfils all these specifications and aims at bringing success to your remote management projects.
se.MIS™ Secure Remote Management and digital Maintenance Book.Secure and reproducible access.
The majority of industrial systems cannot be kept up to the latest software standards by means of security updates. Considerable risks in network environments may occur which lead to a tense relationship between IT and industry. The focus of the IT is to securely connect the systems to the network, whereas the industry is predominantly looking at the systems’ end-to-end functionality. se.MIS™ Remote Management aims at securing and integrating the central control systems based on state-of-the-art IT standards – without changing these when new software or updates have to be added.
se.MIS™ assists our customers to always keep the requirements of the IEC-62443 directive in mind and therefore facilitates a potential future certification as best as possible.
We have faced the problem that access to production facilities was only possible on site, via insecure connections or complicated constructs from IT. The solutions we have developed allow access to industrial plants from internal and external sources via secure communication channels, thus ensuring integrity, authenticity and security of data and processes. Our products can be used for both old and new systems or plants and thus form a central solution according to the Zero Trust principle. In this way, we meet the industry's need for long-lasting solutions for production facilities. In addition, our solutions help to meet the requirements of the IT security standard IEC-62443.
Our innovative solutions are so far unique on the market. Through secure access to and networking of production facilities, we want to advance the digitalisation and IT security of the "factory of the future".
The se.MIS™ Manager can be set up in the cloud or in a local system outside of the isolated machine network. The whole solution is delivered as a digital container, which has already been pre-installed and pre-customised before. An internal and reliable data management forms part of the predefined standard settings. The solution’s operation and customisation is simplified by a compact as well as user-friendly web interface.
Flexibility through a modular systemThe se.MIS™ Manager is the heart of the solution and where the user interaction takes place. The system is operated in the internal networks and ideally also the only system allowing indirect access to the isolated machine network.
The se.MIS™ AccessGateway (optional) authorises external users from the internet to connect to the system without having to open the internal network’s firewall first.
The se.MIS™ Connector (optional) enables secure access from the IT network into the machine network through an indirect connection. This new approach ensures full control as well as isolation at the same time and is superior to any classic VPN connection.
Furthermore, the se.MIS™ Connector is customisable using various interface modules. An individual adaptation to the already existing interfaces and connections of the machine environment is therefore possible.
The se.MIS™ KVM-Extender (optional) allows access to systems which do not feature or even exclude network access (critical infrastructure).
