Red Lion Launches Secure Industrial Remote Access Platform
The company says the new product can help lower operational costs and downtime by reducing site visits and improving response times.
Red Lion, the communications, monitoring, and control technologies company has released its new Secure Remote Access Platform, a remote access solution for modern industrial applications that centralizes the management of routers, allowing users to quickly respond to and act on their most crucial assets from anywhere, at any time.
Part of Spectris plc, the instrumentation and controls company, Red Lion has delivered solutions to global markets since 1972 through communications, monitoring, and control for industrial automation and networking. In partnership with MB connect line GmbH, the Secure Remote Access Platform is now available in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and France.
“As the industrial world rapidly shifted to the new normal of remote production operations due to the pandemic, demand for platforms that securely enables these remote production operation capabilities has never been stronger and more critical”, said Craig Resnick, Vice President, ARC Advisory Group. “Red Lion’s Secure Remote Access Platform was designed to enable secure access in real-time from any location.
ARC expects that this new normal of remote production operations will remain even after the pandemic, as the industry has recognized its benefits to maximizing productivity, key performance indicators, profitability, and most importantly, sustainability to overcome any future pandemic-like challenges”.
Red Lion’s Secure Remote Access routers and software includes the RLConnect24, a remote service portal that provides a centralized site to monitor and manage deployed assets and users. RLConnect24 also provides data visualization, geographic mapping, data logging, and alarms based on operational or system-generated data.
The RLDialUp client software enables operators to securely connect their PC to remote assets for maintenance and configuration, just as if they were plugged into it locally. The routers are industrial-grade gateways that offer optional LAN, WAN, serial, USB, Wi-Fi or 4G LTE connectivity to ensure seamless integration with any industrial application.
Red Lion also launched RA10, a compact industrial firewall, which provides OT-cybersecurity. This intelligent firewall can learn and self-configure to help secure older assets, avoid address conflicts, and/or logically isolate machines or groups of machines.
