Secure cloud VPN for cost-effective remote connectivity


Easier remote support and reduced travel costs for machine builders, OEMs and system integrators with Phoenix Contact’s new web-based service

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Phoenix Contact introduces the mGuard Secure Cloud (mSC), a free web-based service that allows FL mGuard users to securely communicate with and support industrial equipment over the Internet. The mSC uses award-winning FL mGuard hardware to give OEMs, machine builders and system integrators a secure, easy and cost-effective way to access machines and systems anywhere in the world over the Internet.

Because small and medium-size businesses do not always have the resources to implement, host and support their own VPN solution, Phoenix Contact essentially acts as the customer’s IT department. Phoenix Contact hosts the mGuard Secure Cloud at its state-of-the-art data center near Harrisburg, Pa. This helps the user eliminate the hardware and installation costs of an in-house VPN. It also reduces travel expenses incurred from service visits to remote customers.
