Apr. 1, 2015 – The mGuard Secure Cloud (mSC) from Phoenix Contact promises to be a highly secure, web-based service for instant remote access to any machine and system in the world that is connected to the Internet. According to the company, the mSC forms a powerful cloud-based infrastructure that securely interconnects service staff with machines via the Internet, and can identify and solve problems remotely, provide program updates, and ease commissioning of new equipment. Using IPsec Virtual Private Network (VPN) and FL mGuard technology, it guarantees confidentiality, authenticity and integrity of all information and data transmitted between the operator and the system.
