Network Management from Home with Uplogix
Uplogix CTO James Dollar shows how to securely access and remotely troubleshoot a network problem from home using out-of-band management.
At Uplogix, our focus from the beginning has been to provide network management automation that works like an experienced network admin. Identifying, triaging and fixing issues is best done onsite over the console port – not over the network.
We’ve built a platform that monitors locally and uses reliable data to guide automated actions and provide out-of-band access for hands-on actions as well as reporting. When it comes to security, Uplogix secures the whole platform (hardware and software), and as a result put our entire solution through the rigorous FIPS 140-2 certification process.
Our competition sells tools for manual access and troubleshooting: a jump host. They’ve evolved to include functionality to run third-party applications and scripts, but they still aren’t integrated into a true automated network management platform. Their platforms aren’t certified to FIPS 140-2 standards. They use a certified embedded OpenSSL cryptographic module, but the platform itself isn’t certified by NIST like Uplogix.
