Skkynet Raises the Bar for Industrial Data Security

Release of Cogent DataHub™ Version 11 Features LDAP and TOTP Support With Optional Data Diode Mode for Secure Industrial AI Connections

MISSISSAUGA, ON - (NewMediaWire) - July 09, 2024 - Skkynet Cloud Systems, Inc. (“Skkynet” or “the Company”) (OTCQB: SKKY) is pleased to announce the release of Cogent DataHub™ version 11 with a new security model that features LDAP and TOTP support, and an optional data diode mode. Other v11 enhancements include additional External Historian connections for AI support, updates to the WebView™ HMI, and MQTT Sparkplug improvements.

“We’ve raised the bar for industrial data security,” said Paul Thomas, President of Skkynet. “At a time when mission-critical systems are under unprecedented attack, this latest version of DataHub software integrates seamlessly with firewall, DMZ, and data diode technologies to allow remote access to industrial data for AI while presenting zero attack surface to unwanted intruders.”

The Skkynet approach to security puts OT (operations) data on a DMZ using only outbound connections, opening no inbound firewall ports and requiring no VPNs. It allows for one-way or bidirectional data flow, while completely blocking incoming connections. The new, optional data diode mode can be used with or without data diode hardware to provide an extra layer of security.

Other improvements in DataHub v11 include new connections to Apache Kafka, Azure Event Hubs, OPC Classic HDA, and ODBC databases for Industrial AI, augmenting existing connectivity to OSIsoft Pi, AVEVA Historian and Insight, InfluxDB, and REST. The WebView HMI now has improved support for multiple page displays, slide shows, and dashboards. Further, there have been upgrades to MQTT Sparkplug, the OPC DA interface, and the Cogent DataHub service for Azure.

“Our customers have been testing these new features in beta for months, and clamoring for this release,” said Thomas. “This new version of DataHub software meets the needs of today’s industrial data communications—secure access to process data for remote supervisory control, real-time analytics and Industrial AI.”
