Have you had a serious and preventable crisis in your business because you weren't effectively monitoring your important remote sites or gear? Has this crisis caused you endless headaches and huge frustrations, because you know that simple solutions must exist to prevent problems like this?

You're being proactive about preventing the chaos of having critical systems in your business going down. Critical failures that cause disturbances with your customers may lead them to consider alternatives, because you weren't effectively monitoring your network. Don't let this happen to you.
Examples of industries where SCADA is applicable. Don't let your company take the unnecessary risk on free SCADA software.
What does it take to get protection for your SCADA network?
The answer: not much at all. At a very basic level, free SCADA software solutions exist to monitor and control remote devices. The temptation to implement one of these free software solutions is strong, but in the long run you can't afford to take a risk on a free SCADA software download. Some common pitfalls are:
- Potential for errors: Free SCADA software downloads are generally prone to errors. With a lack of graphical alarm display (GUI), no history logs, and poor descriptions of alarms, you'll always be short on the information you need to prevent a monitoring crisis.
- No industrial-grade durability: Free SCADA software has to run on consumer-grade PC hardware, whereas a quality SCADA software system will come on an ultra-stable platform. Running free SCADA software on an unstable system leaves the door wide open for errors, problems, and headaches.
- Wasted effort and labor costs: Not having an effective SCADA system creates confusion, because they're difficult to use, which leads to wasted time and money with more training, more repairs, and employees that don't know what to do.
What your SCADA system needs to provide reliable service.
Your SCADA system should provide you with these necessary tools to be effective:
- Industrial grade reliability on ultra-stable platforms, so you know that your system will always be online.
- Reliable functionality.
- History log, so you always know what changes have been made, and who made them.
- Graphical display (GUI), so you have the most information possible and the most intuitive and easy way to manage your network.
- 24x7 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) tech support, so you always have access to the help and support you need to keep your network running smoothly.
