Transparent remote access to machines and plants
With the icom Connectivity Suite – VPN, INSYS icom offers a managed service that enables OpenVPN-enabled routers, PCs and other devices to communicate in a secure VPN environment.
The integration and administration of the devices is very simple: Configuration files and certificates are generated by the service and, automatically uploaded to INSYS icom routers thanks to the Quick Start Wizard.
You neither require your own infrastructure nor an IT specialists.
NEW: Two-Factor Authentication and China VPN
New highlights make the icom Connectivity Suite – VPN much more than a simple VPN service.
Simply register the INSYS router in the portal and connect it to the VPN after a quick start with all the necessary settings.
Assign devices to different groups and control the connections within and between these groups. Access to protocols, devices or ports can be restricted.
Monitor the availability of individual routers integrated into the VPN and the devices and applications behind them.
Notifications can optionally be sent by email or text message.
A secure thing? The complete hosting takes place in a German, ISO 27001-certified data centre.
The INSYS VPN service impresses with a range of highlights
China – VPN:
INSYS icom now offers secure, legal and stable connectivity between its VPN solution hosted in Germany and INSYS icom routers located in mainland China. The new VPN connection for China has outstanding availability and performance – plus, will be included in the standard service icom Connectivity Suite – VPN.
Why is that relevant for many companies? The Chinese authorities passed an internet security law enforced by a second “Great Firewall” that is more effective than the original firewall at restricting internet access in mainland China.
No need for sharing usernames and passwords with technicians
By receiving a unique code on an open TOTP app (Time-based One-Time Password) it is easy to sync the device with your iCS account with high level security and usability.
To prepare for this step, an OpenTOTP app should be downloaded to their device of choice (typically a mobile device). TOTP is short for Time-based One-time Password and such applications offer a unique code after being matched with a source application, in this case, icom Connectivity Suite – VPN.
Once a customer activates two-factor authentication and matches the device application with their iCS account, they will be prompted to enter a six-digit code from their second device to meet the iCS authorization requirements at login. The underlying technology is proven and ubiquitous. The use of open source solutions has the advantage that customers don’t have to register with other companies to use the second device application.

Only enthusiastic customers will help us achieve lasting success. Let the references of our customers speak for themselves.
“We have been using routers from INSYS icom for many years for remote diagnostics of our machine tools around the world.
In 2012, we used the INSYS icom MoRoS router for the first time for remote diagnostics of our machine at a customer in Brazil.
Over the years, we have successfully used routers such as MoRoS, MRX and MRO. We currently use mainly the MRO-L200 router.
The unpleasant situation with the Covid 19 pandemic at the beginning of this year greatly complicated the construction and subsequent launch of several machines at a Chinese customer.
Together with our Chinese partner, we decided to solve this complicated situation with intensive support through remote diagnostics.
Another complication that needed to be resolved is the annoying fact that the VPN connection to China is very often interrupted by a Chinese firewall.
To ensure a high quality, uninterrupted connection through the Chinese firewall, we decided to use the icom Connectivity Suite (iCS).
We have recently successfully launched this project and our VPN connection to China works fast and is very reliable. “

“For many years we have been using MoRoS and EBW series routers in our INSYS icom technologies to implement remote management. When we won a contract in China in 2019, we were looking for a reliable, fast solution for setting up a VPN connection through a Chinese firewall. Thanks to the direct passage through the Chinese firewall, the specially optimized icom Connectivity Suite – VPN service ensured smooth running of the VPN connection and saved us considerable costs.”
