System security played a crucial role in the development of VisuNet RM Shell 4.0. A built-in firewall and the option to deactivate USB ports for memory sticks significantly reduce the risk of virus or malware infections. VisuNet RM Shell 4.0 also uses mechanics that deny unwanted local saving of data.
An optional, safeguarded web browser limits online access to only websites with customer approval. This web browser enables interaction with applications on plant management level (e.g. Manufacturing Execution Systems), while at the same time providing reliable protection against cyber-attacks and visits to unauthorized pages.
Important additional features ensure process security with the same rigorous approach. Due to their auto-connect function, the VisuNet remote monitors equipped with RM Shell 4.0 can be configured to automatically establish connection to a designated host system. Temporarily interrupted connections are automatically reestablished or connections to predefined backup hosts are built. Network faults or host server failures are handled easily and without any further intervention from the user.
The VisuNet RM Shell 4.0 ensures a secure and reliable representation of process control system information in the field.
