NOTE ON MELTDOWN & SPECTRE EXPLOITS
The Uplogix 5000 and 500 Local Managers are not impacted by either the Meltdown or Spectre exploits. Hardware components in both Local Manager models are not susceptible to Meltdown. Spectre is not a risk because the underlying Linux OS on a Local Manager does not allow program installation, which is required by Spectre to run untrusted code on the machine. Customers running the virtual Uplogix Control Center should work with their hypervisor vendor to make sure that they are adequately patched. > More info
What is BEYOND out-of-band?
Out-of-band access is managing network infrastructure over an alternate path to the WAN. Using a secondary link to a console or terminal server (typically a cellular modem or POTS line), remote users can access and troubleshoot issues.
Uplogix goes beyond traditional console servers with a proactive, intelligent appliance that delivers:
Detect, analyze and take initial runbook actions
Uplogix is a closed appliance, meaning the underlying OS is locked down. We work with your TACACS/Radius and have lots of options for secure connections. Oh yeah, we’re also FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified.
More connectivity options
Our modular design lets you use the link that makes the most sense at your site: cellular, POTS lines, fiber, a secondary Ethernet link, even a LEO satellite that offers connectivity anywhere on the planet.
How we’re different: Think console server on steroids
Our fourth generation hardware platforms provides all the features you’d expect from a high-end console server plus network management software and modular flexibility for the connectivity you need. Additional options include FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certification.
Evolve your existing infrastructure
Uplogix can be deployed through dedicated Uplogix hardware or virtually on a VM hypervisor in combination with a hardware module or console server. These virtual LMs can utilize directly connected console servers, network attached console servers, or locally attached serial ports for management of end devices.
Utilizing current infrastructure hypervisors and console servers decreases the roll-out time of the Uplogix local management platform. Additionally, hypervisor-based fault tolerance such as failover may be used to mitigate VM failure.
Our customers deploy Uplogix in networks with key federal and financial data. We’re deployed on the battlefield to ensure communications stay up and within classified networks to maintain security. Our energy customers need to know that their networks in some of the most remote places on earth are always accessible. Even if your network isn’t carrying national secrets or sitting in the middle of the ocean, if it’s down you might as well be adrift in rough seas.
