Customer Problem

With individual engineers and technicians scattered around the world, connectivity is required from various remote locations. Connections allow remote support and control of power plant operational management system, devices, and applications. Connection to three types of services is required, including PC remote access, web application access, and video access to individual video cameras and sensors.

The Blacksands Solution

Blacksands Secure Connection as a Service is a scalable, simple solution that allows remote employees connect quickly, safely, and effectively—here’s how our platform works:

Step One:Remote technician located in the U.S. requires connection to a power plant located in the U.K., including monitoring, operation and repair.
Step Two: Technician logs into Blacksands and is presented with a list of the services they can access, based on certificate credentials and authorization.
Step Three: Access is granted, and a point-to-point encrypted connection is brokered between the technician’s device and the data collection application.
Step Four: A point-to-point connection is also brokered between the technician’s device and a live video feed overseeing operations.
Step Five: Remote employee is connected quickly, safely and securely.
 

Blacksands’ SCaaS is designed to be simple, secure, scalable and affordable. We focus on making our solution quick to deploy, easy to manage, and highly secure, while providing near real-time auditability so you know the who, what, when and where of every connection.
