Skkynet is a global leader in real-time middleware to securely acquire, monitor, control, visualize, network and consolidate live process data in-plant or over insecure networks.
In plant, Skkynet offers Cogent DataHub®, an industrial middleware solution that connects to virtually any industrial system using standard protocols such as OPC, Modbus, TCP, and ODBC to support OPC networking, server-server bridging, aggregation, data logging, redundancy, and web-based HMI.
For IoT, Skkynet’s SkkyHub service lets you securely network your data to other locations, consolidate info from remote plants and devices, share data for predictive maintenance, or use a web HMI to view data anywhere. Secured by design, SkkyHub requires no security hardware, VPN, or changes to IT policies, yet your plant systems remain invisible to the Internet.

Remote data access is not new. However, several fundamental problems have arisen from a need to provide secure remote access to real-time systems on the Industrial IoT. Find out how a secure-by-design approach closes all firewalls and eliminates exposure to the Internet, IT networks, and plant networks–all with no VPN or additional hardware or software.

The Industrial IoT is different from the regular IoT. Mission-critical industrial systems are not like consumer or business IT applications. Performance is crucial. Most IT systems are built around a relational database, a repository of data that clients can add to or access, where a response time of a second or two is acceptable. IT data is typically sent across a network via HTML or XML, which adds complexity to the raw data, and consumes bandwidth. Although fine for office or home use, these technologies are not sufficient for the Industrial IoT.
