MatrikonOPC DMZ Agent™ provides a secure, standardized solution for accessing
real-time and archived control automation data across De-Militarized Zones (DMZs)
using off the shelf MatrikonOPC products.
Problem: Corporate IT departments implement DMZs to protect network assets
by layering and isolating secure zones from those that are considered less secure.
Network traffic is restricted between these layers via multiple firewalls and a
common PC between them. While DMZs work to secure the automation environment from
the dangers present in the outside world, they prevent necessary operations and
business applications from accessing key data using traditional methods.
Solution: DMZ Agent™ overcomes DMZ related control data sharing issues by
providing engineers and system integrators with two time-tested OPC architectures
depending on design and corporate security policies.
The DMZ Agent Pull solution enables permitted enterprise applications to
securely initiate requests for OPC data located within a
The DMZ Agent Push solution allows permitted enterprise applications to receive
secure network data pushed from within a DMZ (one way firewall configuration).
Streamlined architecture provides flexible configuration depending on data needs.
Easy to use, requires minimal configuration and maintenance.
Eliminates traditional DCOM and firewall issues associated with DMZs
Provides secure, controlled access to process data.
Enables access from multiple data sources to multiple users
Works across multi-layered networks.
Push architecture provides access to historical data.
Pull architecture provides access to real time and/or historical data.
Pushes data to an archive outside the DMZ or allows OPC Clients to pull data from
Integrates with all historians and databases.
Configurable data encryption.
OPC UA compatible.
MatrikonOPC Tunneling Technology
Matrikon OPC Tunneller provides an easy, reliable and effective
communicate between networked computers. It does away with the
typically associated with the configuration of DCOM. No longer
protocols, security settings or locations a factor when sharing
computers. This is achieved by simply installing Matrikon OPC
the OPC client and OPC server nodes. From that point it is only
a matter of
stipulating a computer name or IP address and the port setting.
MatrikonOPC Security Gateway
MatrikonOPC Security Gateway secures all real-time OPC architectures. Unlike
solutions that rely only on DCOM security, Security Gateway controls who
add, read and/or write to a tag on a per-user-per tag basis on any
OPC DA server.
Fully standards-based for maximum compatibility, the Security
the OPC Foundation’s OPC Security specification.
The MatrikonOPC HistoryLink is built upon the MatrikonOPC
technology. HistoryLink enables two OPC HDA capable process
share historical data. HistoryLink can move data on an ongoing
(ScheduleLink), or be triggered via some process variable
Historical data management has never been easier. HistoryLink
is also iC!
Enabled, thus remote configuration is possible.
MatrikonOPC Buffer is an off the shelf solution for remote
buffering, and with the optional History-Link module; historical
to a central process historian. This product is great for engineers
managers who need guaranteed data collection and delivery from
geographically remote sites.
MatrikonOPC UA Proxy
The MatrikonOPC UA Proxy enables existing OPC Classic client applications to
and communication with Unified Architecture (UA) servers and devices. This allows
users to integrate emerging UA products into existing OPC Classic infrastructure.
MatrikonOPC UA Wrapper
The MatrikonOPC UA Wrapper for COM OPC Servers provides OPC UA clients
to legacy COM OPC DA and HDA, OPC Servers using OPC UA
Specifications. The UA Wrapper
exposes COM OPC servers as folders in the
OPC UA server’s address space.
