What is Remote Operations?

Remote/mobile operator access to essential on-site HMI monitoring and control functions | GE Digital

Secure and compliant remote/mobile operator controls

Remote Operations is a packaged software and appliance solution that provides remote/mobile operator access to essential on-site HMI monitoring and control functions. A unique secure network system, hard-token credentials and granular access controls ensure that remote, mobile and on-site operators can work independently or together in a secure and NERC-CIP compliant environment.

"A solution like GE Digital’s Remote Operations enables industrial organizations to adopt remote staffing, flexible resourcing, centralized monitoring, and autonomous operations. Beyond security and compliance requirements, customers need to have granular access, permissioning, and safety controls that allow location-independent work without undue risk.”

Operators anywhere

Remote and mobile operators have secure and managed access to equivalent on-site HMI visualizations and essential operational controls regardless of HMI solutions in production. Managed security and operational validation safeguards ensure that remote, mobile and on-site staff can work independently or together in a secure and compliant remote operations center environment.

GE Digital industrial software provides secure remote operations

Secure

Remote Operations is built around a secure connection broker appliance featuring two-factor authentication; role, time and equipment-based access controls; session logging and recording;  and encrypted pixel-only data transfer. The solution meets compliance standards for NERC-CIP, ISA 99/62443, HIPAA and NIST 800-53.
