Uplogix Selected to Showcase Value of Secure Remote Management at Offshore Communications 2008

30-minute session demonstrates how an integrated approach to secure remote management improves the economics and reduces the risk of remote management

Austin, Texas (October 27, 2008) -; Uplogix, the leading provider of secure remote management (SRM) solutions, today announced Mark Piening, VP of marketing and product management, has been selected to speak at the 8th Annual Offshore Communications 2008 Conference & Exhibition held November 4-6 at the Crowne Plaza Houston Reliant Park in Houston, Texas.

Mr. Piening will present a 30-minute session titled, “How to Improve Remote Network Availability, Performance and Security,” on Wednesday, November 4 from 5:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. local time. Real world examples will show how remote connectivity and management services have helped the world’s largest and most demanding satellite customers in the oil and gas industry gain a competitive edge.

Mr. Piening will introduce how traditional remote connectivity services augmented by secure remote management technology combine to ensure networks and systems consistently stay up and running to support the applications critical to the business, even at the most remote or offshore locations. Attendees will learn how to:

  • Increase production uptime of remote rigs and pipelines, through “always-up” network monitoring and management
  • Reduce the time, effort and travel spent on routine maintenance, support and recovery – especially where network-dependent solutions fail.
  • Increase quality of service for VOIP and other distributed applications
  • Enforce management security and enable compliance, even during outages

About The Uplogix SRM Platform
The Uplogix Secure Remote Management (SRM) platform is the first to integrate IT operations and security remote management functions into a single solution to alleviate the risk, complexity and costs inherent in managing distributed IT infrastructures, including branch offices and datacenters. The platform automates up to 70 percent of routine maintenance and recovery operations with the intelligence of an on-site technician, and is faster, more consistent, and more affordable than traditional point product solutions.  Because it performs all automation via the console port instead of SNMP over the management network, the platform ‘ s active management keeps working even when devices or networks fail.  Specific actions include:  secure remote access, local performance monitoring, policy enforcement, configuration management, fault management and service level management. 

Large organizations experience reduced IT support costs by 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.  To learn more about the Uplogix SRM Platform, visit www.uplogix.com/products.
