One word. . . . downtime. Despite how much your supervisor or customer would like you to be everywhere at once, it's not possible . . . or is it? With STRIDE SiteLink you can remotely connect to multiple site locations all from one browser. Easily monitor or troubleshoot multiple systems without the need for an expensive site visit. So whether it's a 3am shutdown in Memphis or an unexpected service call from Houston, you can eliminate their downtime while preserving yours with remote access from STRIDE SiteLink.
Place the STRIDE SiteLink router near your machine or process and connect devices like PLCs or HMIs directly to it. Once the router automatically connects to the STRIDE SiteLink server network, you can then link to the remote devices through a secure VPN connection as if you were directly connected on-site. It's that easy; the most affordable, secure solution without any hassle!
Absolutely! All of the configuration is done through the easy-to-use, web-based platform. Go to www.stridesitelink.com, register your account, configure and download the router settings using the enclosed USB, install the secure client on your PC and that's it. It really couldn't be easier! Of course if you would like any assistance, we've got you covered with FREE technical support for the life of the product. If needed, give us a call at (800) 633-0405 9am to 6pm EST Monday through Friday, we'll be glad to help.
With remote access, security is paramount. STRIDE SiteLink incorporates many security features for both data gathering and user access. Data gathering: SiteLink router firmware makes use of proven encryption standards like TLS 1.2 to secure the data link from machine/process to the cloud. The SiteLink Client also ensures a secure VPN connection from the cloud to your PC. User access: Advanced user management, event logging and two-factor authentication, which requires an additional password generated on your smartphone at login, are just a few of the many ways STRIDE SiteLink keeps your system safe.
We've taken IT's concerns to heart and incorporated features into STRIDE SiteLink that we feel will garner their approval. For one, an internal firewall is built in to every router to completely separate the office network (WAN) from the plant floor/machine network (LAN).This ensures users with remote access can only access the LAN side of the router. Secondly, all communication to the cloud is initiated with outbound messages to keep company firewalls intact and unwanted intruders out. Lastly, SiteLink offers a 4G router model that connects to the cloud via AT&T cellular service allowing you to alleviate IT's security concerns altogether.
