South Africa with its large distances, and in the current uncertainty centered around our ability to move freely, being able to access and provision machines remotely is a focal point for all. Then there is also the concern of internet security with connections to critical machines. The mGuard range of products guarantees the security of your machines. The Secure Cloud enables a highly secure remote connection with great ease. With the release of the mGuard Secure Cloud here in South Africa, it could not have come at a better time.

Cloud-based remote maintenance: Easy – safe – reliable

The cloud – based on the mGuard industry standard – uses Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) with the proven IPsec security protocol. This guarantees the confidentiality, authenticity, and integrity of all data transmitted between all devices connected via the mGuard Secure Cloud.

The remote monitoring solution, hosted in Germany, provides cloud-computing in compliance with the most stringent European data protection standard (GDPR). This means that you do not need to invest in hardware, and you save on local administration costs. The hosted cloud is always up to the latest standard. Thus, you benefit from regular updates and patch management, low latency times, and a highly available computing centre that operates around the clock. This is a particularly convenient service, especially for small- and medium-sized businesses.
