Ewon ensure high security using the "Layered security approach" also called "Defense in Depth Approach". This approach preserves information integrity and confidentiality along with information system availability and resiliency. Talk2M plays a crucial role here as the service is involved in 5 of the 6 layers that ensure optimal security for our "Remote Access" and "Remote Data" solutions.
Talk2M is aimed to provide the best possible business continuity of its services. Two options are proposed:
Talk2M Free+, relying on several hosting partners
Talk2M PRO, relying on Rackspace(TM) and other high-end hosting partners
Talk2M is supervised 24/7/365 by on duty engineers and provide you with a first rate monitoring based on KPIs gathered from all servers thanks to proven and effective monitoring software (i.e. Munin).
Talk2M PRO reaches a rate of 99,6% per year availability with a maximum breakdown of 4 consecutive hours. Talk2M PRO services are guaranteed through SLA (Service Level Agreement).
Worldwide servers and redundant architecture
Talk2M has several servers in different regions of the world: Europe, North America, Japan, China, Australia, India, South Africa, etc. Talk2M allocates the best server location to improve remote access performance and reduce latency between IP packets using eWON IP geo-localization.
Talk2M server architecture is fully redudant with 3 different hosting providers geographically distributed in a way to maximize resilience & separated access servers and VPN servers for an optimized roll-out mechanism.
Mobile platform compatibility
Talk2M is fully compatible with all mobile devices thanks to M2Web. M2Web is a standard service of Talk2M providing secure browser-based mobile access to your remote HMI, web server, PC and panels.
Talk2M support all communication technologies. No matter which communication method is used (LAN, ADSL, 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, WiFi, etc.), Talk2M will always offer the same user experience and same tools.
Within eCatcher, the remote access client of Talk2M, users are able to access their Ewon devices after a credentials check in a single click. Talk2M and eCatcher helps to manage Ewon devices and users into groups. The Talk2M PRO account provides a powerful access control process available through eCatcher. Talk2M PRO account administrator can easily grant access rights to a user or users group for a complete site or to a single device. This allows restrictive access to what is really required and thus avoids errors or unwanted remote actions. With the Talk2M PRO, three engineers can establish a concurrent eCatcher connection at the same time.
PLC and HMI remote access
Talk2M is compatible with VNC (Virtual Network Computing) and all standard HMI's running it. Talk2M is also RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) compatible with all devices running (Windows XP, Professionnal, 200 Terminal Server, Server 2003, Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1).
Detailed reports are available including all information required to trace all remote connections (date, time, user name, machine, connection time and traffic).
NEW version. eCatcher – easy, secure, Internet remote access with Talk2M. For Free+ and Pro services.

Cloud computing architecture for high scalability with VPN servers located in Europe and North America. The communication with the Talk2M access server is performed using a Web service implemented with the XMLRPC protocol (over HTTPS).
The VPN security model uses SSL/TLS for session authentication and the IPSec ESP protocol for secure tunnel transport over UDP. It supports the X509 public key infrastructure (PKI) for session authentication, the TLS protocol for key exchange, the cipher-independent EVP interface (DES, 3DES, AES, BF) for encrypting tunneled data, and the HMAC-SHA1 algorithm for authenticating tunneled data.
Open VPN 2.0 using SSL UDP or HTTPS. The information exchanged during the communication session is encrypted (SSL - 2048-bit keys), and only authenticated users can connect to the eWON unit.
Software as a Service hosting
The Talk2M account administrator manages (create, modify, delete) users. Each user has a username and password.
Talk2M supports multiple concurrent connections i.e. the number of registered users who are allowed to initiate a remote connection at the same time.
Talk2M supports management of user privileges for accessing remote machines. Each eWON unit is a member of one or more pools, while each user belongs to one or more groups. The privileges granted to the members of a pool or a group are defined by roles.
Outgoing connections via HTTPS port 443 or UDP port 1194; compatible with standard SIM cards. Includes a smart text-messaging (SMS) wake-up mechanism Compatible with eFive.
ADSL or LAN connections
Outgoing connections via HTTPS port 443 or UDP port 1194; no firewall issues Permanent connection between the eWON unit and the Talk2M server
