Research Details

NetLok(TM) provides closed-loop login procedure, with restricted login provision, that allows secure, one-time access to network by authorized technical support staff. In addition to proactively detecting connectivity problems, solution can automatically track, record, and archive remote network access. It supports multiple industry-standard connection types, centering around VPN, and can handle PLC/PC systems from same connection.

Package sets industry standard for supply chain data security

FKI Logistex® , a leader in integrated material handling solutions, has released NetLok(TM), a secure information infrastructure for remote connectivity. The announcement was made by Steve Ackerman, president, FKI Logistex North America, at a press conference held at ProMat 2009 in Chicago, Ill.

NetLok features a closed-loop login procedure with a restricted login provision, allowing secure, one-time access to the network by authorized technical support staff. With reliable 24/7 diagnostics availability, FKI Logistex technical support staff can log-in remotely to troubleshoot, identify and respond immediately to the problem with the appropriate solution. NetLok proactively detects connectivity problems, reducing potential lapses in diagnostics. The system can also automatically track, record and archive an audit of remote network access.

"NetLok is a logical and necessary answer to the data security challenges today's networked operations face," says Eric Rice, Director of Technical Support, FKI Logistex North America.

"The entire global supply chain has shifted from discrete, dedicated industrial networks to enterprise-level networks, making security of utmost importance," adds Rice. "Until now, there was no standard for ensuring data security across the material handling industry. NetLok sets that standard."

NetLok supports multiple industry-standard connection types, centering around a virtual private network (VPN), and can handle PLC or PC systems from the same connection, allowing several sites to be managed without the need for resident connectivity applications. Using a pool of dedicated network resources, and with built-in redundancy provided by a secure mirror site, NetLok provides speeds that are up to 120 times faster than traditional modem connections.

Featuring a common user interface, NetLok provides network access without the need for special clients. Existing FKI Logistex customers can easily upgrade their legacy systems to NetLok to gain the benefits of a secure and reliable remote connectivity package. More than 200 of FKI Logistex customer sites worldwide are currently accessible via NetLok, and over 100 of those are in North America alone.
