What is Predator Secure DNC?

Predator Secure DNC is a Windows-based Predator application that helps make secure program transfers easier and safer across Windows-based CNC controllers. By allowing your CNC machine tool to interface with your network more easily, you can eliminate the requirements of corporate domains, workgroups, and Windows Shares for DNC transfers. This software allows you to securely transfer files to and from CNC machines through firewalls, which is important for shops that have strict network security.

Benefits of Utilizing Predator Secure DNC

There are many reasons that shops install Secure DNC, but one of the biggest reasons is the fact that there are so many benefits that come with the software. If you have an older CNC that is running a legacy operating system, Secure DNC eliminates the need for costly controller upgrades. With Predator Secure DNC, you can integrate all of your legacy equipment and create a common application between all equipment. It also creates transparent CNC network security and standardizes communication protocols to make it easier for your IT Department.
