Bridging the gap between production and management systems
Managers have long known that valuable information resides in the systems that run their production facilities. The problem has often been that both worlds operate in isolation, with little or no connection between them. Only the Cogent DataHub allows you to network data across a DMZ, without exposing any inbound security risks in either IT or OT. This provides a gateway for managers to make plant data available on corporate networks, so it can be integrated into Management Execution Systems (MES) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.
By running an instance of the Cogent DataHub inside your DMZ, the DataHub acts as an OPC data Proxy. Since both the IT and OT DataHub instances are establishing the connection to the DMZ, neither side needs to open any inbound firewall ports. Yet, your OPC data can freely pass bi-directionally.
