KEPServerEX V5.12 features a security plug-in, user access management, and increased interoperability with modern OPC UA standards


Kepware Technologies released KEPServerEX V5.12, a communications platform designed to help meet industry security requirements and increase interoperability with modern OPC UA standards.

KEPServerEX V5.12 features a security policies plug-in and updated user manager settings, to leverage 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.

KEPServerEX V5.12 also includes two new Allen-Bradley Micro800 Serial and Ethernet drivers. Additional enhancements have been made to more than 20 of Kepware’s drivers, including the DataLogger Plug-In, the Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet Driver, and the DNP Master Serial and Ethernet drivers.
