The experts at OAS keep reviewing the platform capabilities to keep up with the latest technology and improve their security. With the latest security enhancements in Version 17, the OAS has become the most trusted platform for the SCADA system. This new version enables ironclad protection from packet spoofing and faster byte stream compression. It also comes with updated encryption to protect against unauthorized access.

The OAS Version 17 aims to improve the data security of the platform to keep clients' critical systems and data safe. To achieve this, OAS has updated all client interfaces and users are notified to set up security on the OAS Engine. OAS platform developer says, "At OAS, we believe that security is the foundation of any software. However, software security depends on the developer, as well as the end-user. We have updated the security feature and ensured that the end-user utilizes the latest security features. The new security update has user credentials encryption which encrypts the user credentials. We have also added secure client-server handshaking that includes a unique 64-bit identifier allowing OAS to securely transport your data. The new update comes with pre-configured admin security groups that prompt users to create an admin user upon installation. The system prohibits access until an admin user has been created. It means that only authenticated user can configure security who has assigned access to this feature. The unauthenticated users are prohibited and get access to only limited functionality."

Open Automation Software provides smart solutions across multiple industries. As an IoT gateway for industrial automation, OAS enables businesses to transfer data from any source to any destination. The platform has revamped its encryption process by making data packets 3-9 times smaller which has improved transfer speed. With the release of this robust security update, all OAS client interfaces have been updated to include this new transport including all .NET assemblies, OAS Configure application, Excel Connector, and service-to-service communications for Windows and Linux.
