Create a Secure,
Reliable Control System

In today’s data-rich, network-connected business world, security and stability are more important than ever. That’s why we built Ignition upon industrial-grade security technology with a solid, unified architecture and built-in redundancy. Ignition has been running control systems for almost 10 years, proving itself to be more secure and more reliable than traditional HMI / SCADA software.

Ignition was designed with stability in mind. Its unified architecture is the perfect foundation to build projects that last, both big and small. Ignition’s built-in redundancy and rapid system restoration features ensure that you never have to worry about losing valuable data. Last but not least, every part of Ignition has been rigorously tested to ensure that it works right, every time.

Unified Architecture

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.

Rigorously Tested

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.

Sécurité SSL

Secure SSL Technology

The security of your data is vitally important. To keep it safe, Ignition uses the same ultra-secure SSL technology that banks use to encrypt the communication channels your data passes through.


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.

Modern Protocols

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 has built-in auditing, which allows administrators to easily see who did what on the system and when they did it.

System Insight

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.

Fast Resolution

Because it’s so easy to see what happened on your system and when, resolving any process issues is made that much easier.

Authentification Clients

Client Authentication

Ignition projects can use advanced role-based authentication, and can integrate seamlessly with corporate network security using Microsoft® Active Directory™.

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.

Manage Users

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.
