CloudConnect: Enabling the Industrial Internet of Things

Unidirectional CloudConnectIn this podcast recorded at IoT Solutions World Congress Barcelona 2016, Andrew Ginter, VP of Industrial Security at Waterfall Security, talks about Unidirectional CloudConnect, an essential enabler for the Industrial Internet of Things.

CloudConnect uses Unidirectional Gateway technology to gather data from industrial sources such as historians, industrial control systems, OPC servers, and industrial devices. CloudConnect converts that data into a unified cloud-friendly format, such as XML files, relational databases, publish/subscribe protocols, or SOAP web services.

CloudConnect transmits the unified data securely out of the site and into the industrial cloud. CloudConnect’s foundational Unidirectional Gateway technologies ensure seamless connectivity with both industrial and cloud systems, and provide absolute protection from network threats that are fundamental to Internet-exposed networks and systems.
