Ingress for external networks: devices and machines

ngrok equips enterprises to securely connect to devices and machines in a scalable and reliable manner, unlocking new use cases and innovative solutions.

challenge

IoT Connectivity is not scalable

Connecting to IoT devices such as point-of-sale systems and factory robots that are not part of the corporate network poses a challenge. Each site operates with its unique ISP, networking, port forwarding rules, and firewall setup. This variability requires custom programming and configurations, which is impossible to achieve across thousands or millions of devices hindering your ability to scale easily. Misconfigurations could also cause downtime for end customers.
