ProSoft Connect

PLC Remote Access

Secure. Remote. Access.

ProSoft Technology has been helping you realize the benefits of the Industrial Internet of Things, Industrie 4.0 and Smart Industry since 1990. With ProSoft Connect, our new, cloud-native platform, we’ll be helping you realize additional value of the IIoT for years to come.


ProSoft Connect’s service uses a layered approach to security.

  • Uses your PC’s operating system VPN, minimizing the need for user-installed software
  • Uses industry standard HTTPS for all communication
  • Requires a certificate and one-time use keys to authenticate the gateways
  • System vulnerability tested regularly by third-party company
  • Runs on Amazon Web Services, which uses advanced cloud security technology

How it helps you...

Reduce risk of cyber-attack: No user-installed software means that your employees won't have to spend time, energy, and money on updating systems – or fixing things if the in-house update hits a snag. You can instead focus on your work and leave the maintenance of the platform up to ProSoft’s experts.

“Manage your connected devices from one location”


The Web-based interface is intuitive and was designed by user-experience experts, based on more than 100 customer interviews. The platform eliminates your need to obtain a static, public IP address from your cell carrier in order to access devices. ProSoft Connect uses EasyBridge™ technology, which enables your PC to act like it is connected directly to a local switch on the remote network, allowing software tools such as Studio 5000, Unity, TIA Portal, and many more, to work without having to deal with any routing. The wired gateway can be enabled and disabled via an EtherNet/IP™ message from your HMI or PLC. The platform eliminates your need to obtain a static, public IP address when using the cellular gateway. Until "Star Trek" transporters exist, ProSoft Connect is your next best option.

How it helps you...

Improve efficiency: Use your PLC vendor’s programming tools without worrying about compatibility issues or learning how to setup complex routed network connections. Use the software’s discovery tools to browse connected devices, instead of trying to remember the IP address of each device on your remote system.

ProSoft Connect works with our ICX35-HWC Industrial Cellular Gateway and PLX35-NB2 Network Bridge. If you will be utilizing the Industrial Cellular Gateway, you need to purchase a gateway, add a cellular data plan, and sign up for an account at If you have wired access to the Internet, you can purchase the Network Bridge, skip the data plan, and sign up for an account. We’re working on bringing other ProSoft solutions to the platform as well, including devices from in-chassis, gateway, and other wireless solution families.
