Cyber-attacks are a very hot topic – and a very real threat. That’s why Digi LTE routers support advanced VPN, firewall, encryption and authentication tools to ensure the highest cyber protection. Digi TrustFence® gives you built-in security that simplifies connecting devices in order to more easily integrate device security, device identity and data privacy capabilities.

  • Secure Boot: Ensures only signed software images can run on a device
  • Encrypted Storage: Local file system encryption keeps internal device data safe
  • Protected Ports: Access-controlled internal and external ports prevent unwanted “back doors”
  • Configuration Best Practices and Monitoring: Support and guidelines for properly securing a device

Digi Remote Manager®

The one place to go to better manage, monitor, configure and protect all your remote devices.

  • Set performance thresholds and inspect individual devices
  • View the summary status of device groups
  • Report and alert on performance statistics
  • Connection history and signal quality
