Secomea CEO drops some helpful hints about the forthcoming Secomea release.
In October 2015, Secomea launched the 6th major release of its remote management system. It introduced Layer 2 support and full Unicode support, effectively enabling multiple languages transparently.
Secomea CTO Peter Hansen says they are now counting down for the next major release, which will exceed the improvements of Secomea 6.0. “Without revealing all the details, I can say that 7.0 will provide auto-detection of IP and USB devices as one major usability improvement. This feature is a direct response to a customer request, and we are happy to have succeeded in creating a properly secure solution.”
Simple central configuration of static connections
However, the biggest news, according to Hansen, is the introduction of a brand new feature that allows easy central configuration of static connections from a central site to all SiteManagers. “Using an intuitive drag ‘n’ drop configuration in GateManager, even a non-IT person can set up a complete secure infrastructure for central logging to, for example, a central SCADA system or OPC server,” Ferdinandsen explains. “This will be supported by existing SiteManagers (both hardware and software), and as it will also be supported on hosted GateManagers, you can deploy this with your existing GateManager hosting account.”
The feature is completely transparent to IP networks and firewalls for both the central site and the remote locations. That means anyone can use it – without involving any IT departments – and your LinkManager access is unaffected.
More information coming soon
Hansen believes Secomea 7.0 will have a revolutionizing impact on productivity optimization, cost savings, Industry 4.0 compliance and more. Look for further information about Secomea 7.0 in upcoming newsletters, including technical details, use cases, business cases and perspectives on the new opportunities it will represent.
