The only closed-firewall solution for networking process data.
Skkynet’s DataHub middleware uses the DHTP protocol to make outbound-only connections from plant or process. This keeps all inbound firewall ports closed, supports DMZs and forward proxies, and requires no VPNs—and yet still allows for real-time bidirectional data flow.
No exposure of the plant network
Using no VPNs means no extension of the plant’s security network. DHTP can work seamlessly within network proxies, data proxies and DMZ servers.
No disruptions from the IT network
Read-only options and non-intrusive connectivity ensure that the plant remains secure and functional, even if remote data access is degraded or a remote location is compromised.
No access beyond the required data
The plant decides which data to make available remotely.
No compromise on performance
Real-time data is delivered at microseconds above network latency, easily scaling to 100,000+ data point changes per second, all the while preserving the data model across networks.
One-way or bidirectional data flow
Each connection can be configured as read-only or read-write, to support data monitoring or supervisory control.
No high cost
By reducing these security hurdles, Skkynet reduces security costs.
