Secure IoT network
Combine a private, secure IoT network with a comprehensive identity-driven Industrial IoT (IIoT) platform to support the operation, maintenance and support of industrial equipment and machinery
Industry 4.0 is transforming how organizations in almost every industrial sector operate. However, with the vulnerabilities and risks of exchanging sensitive, mission-critical industrial information over the public Internet, security and performance remain major barriers. Industrial manufacturers require secure connectivity, performance and scalability to successfully implement Industrial IoT across production, supply chain and field operations.
OpenText™ Industrial Grid is a private, cloud-based and secure IoT network designed specifically to support the high-performance point-to-point exchange of industrial related information, including IoT sensor data from production, plant and remotely monitored equipment. Industrial Grid securely exchanges information related to the ‘digital twin’ of a physical piece of equipment or serviceable asset, including 3D CAD, maintenance and multi-media related information.
What is a secure IoT network?
Every industrial endpoint connection has to be secured as data is transmitted between plants or IoT platforms to secure valuable data and prevent cyberattacks. A secure IoT network allows authorized IoT devices to share sensor information with people, systems and networks that have permission to access this information, while maintaining data integrity and privacy.
OpenText Industrial Grid overview
OpenText Industrial Grid provides a dedicated, secure network for Industrial IoT environments, such as industrial plants or remotely monitored equipment, such as wind turbines, power units or oil drills. It combines the power of a global, private cloud network designed specifically for industrial applications, with the advanced identity-driven capabilities of the OpenText Internet of Things platform.
The secure IoT network delivers the performance, scalability and global reach of the cloud, without the security and data management risks of public cloud implementations. Industrial Grid is optimized to securely exchange all types of industrial data and content, from IoT sensor data to large CAD files and video. An integrated IoT platform, Industrial Grid provides a centralized, end-to-end device management solution for an entire Industry 4.0 infrastructure.

OpenText Industrial Grid features
Private and secure network
Delivers the latest in web-based encryption to protect data in transit, while certificate-based authentication ensures that the data is only shared between authorized entities.
Manages the credentials of every person, system and thing in their varying states within the identity lifecycle.
Authorization and access control
Validates and verifies data access rights of every entity on the IIoT network. Fine-grained and contextual access control ensures data security and auditability.
Secure device management
Securely manages all IoT devices throughout their entire lifecycle, from initial provisioning to final removal from the network.
IIoT ecosystem integration
Exchanges and integrates IIoT data across devices and systems, eliminating the complexity of creating and syndicating integrations for machine-to-machine, machine-to-people or machine-to-application scenarios.
Aggregates information from different IIoT sources to obtain a single data feed for analysis or archiving.
Collects, analyzes and normalizes IIoT data from a broad range of sources to create realtime, interactive and easy-to-use visualizations, reports and dashboards.
Information and operation technology integration
Retro-fits production, supply chain and field operational assets with IoT sensors to facilitate the information and operation technology (OT) integration, while maximizing the use of existing investments.
