As connected, or “smart,” technology trends advance, organizations also recognize the opportunity to outfit remote sites with new secure, remote access solutions. Providing connectivity, control and monitoring capabilities for remote sites enables organizations to respond quickly to operational changes and optimize business efficiency. The era of Digitalization also brings a wide array of potential IT security concerns not typically addressed through standard industrial hardware and software.

MB connect line’s highly secured hardware and software solutions for remote control monitoring systems and Red Lion’s modular and rugged Industrial Automation control and monitoring solutions complement each other perfectly. Customers will be enabled to meet the demands of Industrial environments including flexibility to customize features to meet specific site requirements. The solutions and software tools can be integrated securely and directly with proprietary applications.

The remote access technology MB connect line has developed will integrate seamlessly with Red Lion automation technology.
“MB connect line is the logical partner for Red Lion to deliver secure solutions to both the industry and our customers alike in embracing digital transformation. The technologies Red Lion is bringing to market are complimentary and serve as a foundation for implementing secure, remote access solutions at the edge.” said Jack Lee, President of Red Lion. “The strategic partnership supports Red Lion’s vision of secure, easy-to-use edge connectivity solutions.” Lee adds.
