Red Lion’s Remote Access Platform offers secure access to manage remote equipment.
Red Lion has launched its Secure Remote Access Platform that centralizes the management of routers. The remote access routers offer Simply.Connect technology that enables the setup of routers in under two minutes using only a smartphone, the company says. The platform is based on RLConnect24, a remote service portal that provides a centralized site to monitor and manage deployed assets and users. RLConnect24 also offers data visualization, geographic mapping, data logging, and alarms based on operational or system-generated data. The RLDialUp client software lets operators securely connect their PC to remote assets for maintenance and configuration. The routers are industrial-grade gateways that offer optional LAN, WAN, serial, USB, Wi-Fi or 4G LTE connectivity. Red Lion also launched its RA10 industrial firewall, which provides OT-cybersecurity. This firewall can learn and self-configure to help secure older assets, avoid address conflicts, and/or logically isolate machines or groups of machines.
