Skkynet DataHub service for Microsoft Azure

Nov. 30, 2021

 Skkynet Cloud Systems Inc.'s Skkynet’s DataHub technology for secure, real-time industrial data communications is now available at Microsoft Azure Marketplace. With the DataHub service, Azure customers can securely acquire, monitor, control, consolidate and share their live process data. The Skkynet DataHub service connects to Azure IoT Hub for real-time remote monitoring, control and data logging. Using standard industrial protocols like OPC UA or MQTT, users can also directly connect to applications and programs that run on Azure, or at remote locations.

Security is based on Skkynet’s patented technology that uses outbound-only connections to ensure that no attack surface is exposed on a local plant network. It requires no IT policy changes, no open inbound firewall ports, no VPNs, and no extra hardware while allowing real-time bi-directional data flow through DMZs and network proxies up to the cloud.

Skkynet’s products and services—DataHub software for in-plant, the Skkynet DataHub for Microsoft Azure, the SkkyHub cloud service, and ETK for embedded devices—provide secure access to industrial data through open, standard industrial protocols, allowing users to integrate OT with IT systems and other applications. Secure integration of embedded devices, on-premise systems, and remote locations through seamless, end-to-end connectivity in real time lets users derive maximum value from Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0.
