Software - Applications: KEPServerEX v5.12 from Kepware Technologies connects, manages, monitors, and controls disparate devices and software applications in an automated environment. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice award winner.KEPServerEX is an industry-proven Communications Platform that manages critical automation, facility, and infrastructure data. KEPServerEX offers an extensive library of more than 150 device drivers, client drivers, and advanced plug-in options to fit the communication requirements unique to your industrial control system—all through one user interface. By relying on a single communications platform to gather data for client applications, KEPServerEX allows you to help reduce network traffic, decrease device and system resource usage, and ensure access to consistent and reliable data throughout your organization. Furthermore, KEPServerEX is truly scalable. Add device drivers and advanced options on demand through the plug-and-play functionality, and leverage the separate configuration and runtime modes for real-time parallel configuration and live operation without downtime. KEPServerEX is designed to meet the highest standards of quality as determined by independent agencies—such as the OPC Foundation—industrial automation users, and internal stakeholders. Through extensive testing and certification, Kepware is proud to provide you with the highest quality communications solutions.

With the release of version 5.12 and the Security Policies Plug-In, KEPServerEX now provides a solution for role-based security, helping administrators minimize intentional attacks or unintentional mistakes that may cause downtime or impact safety. KEPServerEX v5.12 leverages user authentication in OPC UA to help ensure that only intended users receive access to the server runtime through trusted client applications. Administrators can provide broad access permissions at the group level or restrict read, write, or browse access for more granular control at the object level.
