SecureM2M Gateway Hardware

For some environments, installing Netop SecureM2M Gateway software directly to servers or devices is not an option.  That's why we created the Netop SecureM2M Hardware Gateway - a ready-to-deploy device that connects to your network through an ethernet port.  Ideal for retrofitting legacy devices, our Hardware Gateway brings port-forwarding, IP masking and secure connectivity to any device, anywhere.

  • Ethernet Port or Mini USB for USB-to-Ethernet connectivity
  • 5 Vdc input wall-wart power supply
  • Dimensions: L 4.5” (11.43 cm); W x 4.5” (11.43 cm); H x 1.85” (4.7 cm)

How SecureM2M Works

Netop SecureM2M: How Secure Remote Access Works

  • An administrator configures rights to limit user access to specific ports on specific devices.
  • The Netop Gateway communicates with Netop Secure Cloud by way of an outbound heartbeat - devices do not need to be exposed to the public Internet and no ports need to be held open.
  • A user or API call initiates contact through the Netop Connector to the Netop Secure Cloud.
  • A secure, encrypted tunnel is created between the Netop Connector and Netop Gateway to allow data to be pulled, files to be transferred, remote control and other applications to be run on target devices.
