PTC has released its latest version of its Kepware industrial connectivity software. Kepware is foundational to the industrial connectivity capabilities of PTC’s ThingWorx Industrial IoT platform, and now the KEPServerEX 6.7 solution makes it easier than ever for users to connect to all industrial automation assets via a single, secure application. Enhanced connectivity for manufacturing and new features for secure server deployment allow enterprises to standardize industrial communications on KEPServerEX.
The increased complexity, cost, and bandwidth spent retrieving industrial data, instead of interpreting and leveraging it, has created a business need for a single, secure solution through which enterprises can connect all of their production assets. KEPServerEX 6.7’s breadth of connectivity, reliability, and security features empower engineers to focus on process efficiencies and product improvement.
Recent updates highlighting the manufacturing industry include the Torque Tool- commonly used in discrete assembly operations, and KEPServerEX distinguishes itself as the only connectivity applications that seamlessly integrate with these assets. KEPServerEX provides data access to torque tools, as well as all other industrial automation assets, creating a single point of access for industrial software. The integration enables enterprises to decrease time and effort spent on software implementation.
KEPServerEX 6.7 also includes advanced security enhancements to address the rising rate of cyber-attacks on operations networks. To combat the risk of IP theft, downtime, and comprised safety, among other threats, PTC has expanded and enhanced its secure remote configuration tools, reaffirming the company’s commitment to its Shared Responsibility Model. Version 6.7 also adds new security features to the ThingWorx Native Interface, allowing users to implement network best-practices when connecting to ThingWorx in the cloud or over a wide area network (WAN).
