Uplogix Changes the Economics of Remote Management at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2008

Company demonstrates how secure remote management slashes IT costs and risks that software-only solutions fail to address

Gartner Symposium/IT Expo, Orlando, FL (October 13, 2008) – Uplogix, the leading provider of secure remote management (SRM) solutions, today announced their attendance at Gartner Symposium/IT Expo 2008, October 12-16, in Orlando, Florida. In line with this year’s conference theme focusing on how today’s struggling economy is driving IT decisions, Uplogix will show attendees how their secure remote management technology is the first to integrate the components required to automate the management and recovery of remote sites with confidence. Uplogix will hold demonstrations and review ROI examples in booth #1236.

“The remote management market is estimated to be $10 billion and growing, driven by IT networks that are becoming more distributed, expensive and complex to support,” said Mark Piening, VP of marketing and product management, Uplogix. “Today’s economic climate is forcing large IT organizations to reconsider how they apply their limited budgets and ‘do more with less’. We’ve seen a huge increase in demand for our technology to automate expensive remote management actions and deliver a substantial savings in remote downtime and recovery costs, freeing people to work on other projects or reduce cost structure if necessary.  Uplogix is capturing an early lead in the remote management market by applying an integrated approach to remote management of mission critical infrastructure.” 

Gartner Research’s Raymond Paquet, managing VP of IT Operations and Enterprise Management, states the necessity of trusted automation is a key to cost savings in remote network operations. “Automation is a very, very powerful thing from both a security perspective and from an operations perspective, because 40 percent of unplanned downtime is due to operator error,” says Paquet. “If we can remove the operator from the equation through automation, we can improve our availability significantly.” To hear more on what Mr. Paquet and other Gartner analysts have to say about trusted automation, download the Uplogix webinar featuring Gartner analysts, “The Convergence of IT Operations and Security.”

The Uplogix SRM platform reduces cost, risk, and complexity in distributed IT infrastructure, for the first time giving the ability and confidence to automate the management and recovery of remote sites. The platform automates up to 70 percent of routine maintenance and recovery operations with the intelligence of an on-site technician, more consistently, faster and at an affordable price point than other traditional point product solutions.

Enterprises experience reduced IT support costs of 25 to 50 percent by performing routine maintenance without burdening IT staff, and avoiding unnecessary support calls and trips caused by incidents and unplanned downtime. In addition, security and compliance teams can assure the person making a change to any managed device is authorized and their actions are recorded – especially use cases that software-only solutions are unable to see, much less report (i.e. when rebuilding a system from “bare metal”).
