Create a Secure,
Ignition is built from the ground up with a rock-solid, unified architecture. Ignition is platform-independent, which means it won’t be affected by OS-specific patches and service packs that can cause gaps in security. Every individual piece of Ignition was designed and tested to work in unison with each other to give you unprecedented platform stability.
Easily create a fault-tolerant system by joining two Ignition Gateways together with Ignition’s built-in Redundancy feature. If your primary Gateway ever goes down, the backup Gateway takes over automatically. All your clients will stay up and running and all your data loggers will function without missing a beat.
Rapid System Restoration
In the event of catastrophic hardware failure, Ignition is designed to get up and running again in no time. Thanks to Ignition’s quick installation and single-file backup, the entire system can be back up in just minutes.
Ignition undergoes rigorous testing on a regular basis to ensure its stability. Individual Ignition modules and updates are also tested across platforms to guarantee Ignition works right for you every time.
Secure SSL Technology
Just like your banking website, Ignition uses modern SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology for your network traffic. This security layer safeguards all communications between your Ignition server and client against potential eavesdropping and tampering.
Our security layers are implemented in a way that is easy to integrate with your existing security schemes. You won’t have to rework your network to get Ignition functioning.
Audit Trail Système
Ignition’s audit log tracks the behavior of client and designer sessions for a particular project. You can quickly see at-a-glance information on who changed or added screens, successful and unsuccessful logins, values written to the PLC and more.
Because it’s so easy to see what happened on your system and when, resolving any process issues is made that much easier.
Assign User Roles
Ignition uses a role-based security model, with users belonging to one or more roles. This offers extreme granularity in how security can be applied. You can control every project, screen, button, and component the role can see and use.
User management is just as flexible as everything else in Ignition. Keep all of your users and roles stored in your Ignition project, store them in an external database, or do a combination of both.
Microsoft® Active Directory™
Already have all of your users and groups setup in Active Directory™? No problem. We have several modes available for interfacing with Microsoft® Active Directory™ servers which allow you to manage your users the way you want.
