Concerned about WebPort or 3G Sunset? We’ve Got Great News

When you’re monitoring equipment, reliability, security, and longevity are top of mind.

If you’re a Spectrum WebPort user or have 3G solutions, recent news about each may have you a little concerned. The great news? ProSoft has gateways that will allow you to extend your application’s longevity. 

First up is the Spectrum WebPort news: You may have heard it moved to end-of-life status (you can read the details here). If you have a Spectrum WebPort in use in the field, we don’t want you to be left hanging when the servers are turned off. We've got cellular and wired remote access gateways that can be monitored directly in ProSoft Connect, our secure cloud-native platform that you can access anywhere, at any time. 

For many other remote access users, the 3G service sunset in many countries threatens to cut off that remote connectivity. If that’s you, we have more good news: ProSoft's cellular gateway supports 4G LTE, ensuring your remote access to equipment will continue. 

But how secure is it?

Fair question, for sure. Not all remote access programs are made equal. ProSoft Connect employs a defense-in-depth approach to security. Its safeguards include two-factor authentication, one-time use credentials, and no software installation. It's simple to set up (watch this demo to learn more!), and easily scalable.

The platform's Power User Plans also feature the ProSoft-exclusive Virtual Lockout-Tagout (vLOTO), which gives you much better control and visibility into when and how your machines are accessed. And now, you can access the service from your iOS and Android devices, thanks to the ProSoft Connect Lite app.
