We are the first and only Localized Management Platform
Uplogix is a network independent management platform that is located with - and directly connected to - managed devices. It can stand alone or augment your existing centralized management tools providing the configuration, performance and security management automation functions that are best performed locally.
The benefits are reduced operational costs, faster resolution when issues arise and improved security and compliance vs. centralized only management. An enhanced focus on network devices readies your management systems for the transition to the production use of more network sensitive cloud and virtual infrastructure technologies.
Uplogix provides solutions for federal networks with products that are FIPS-140-2 compliant. Learn more...
Uplogix Solutions for Federal Networks
Out-of-band management, secure access and
of network infrastructure
Uplogix Local Management simplifies routine administration, maintenance and recovery tasks—securely and regardless of network availability. Standing alone or augmenting your existing centralized management tools, Uplogix provides the configuration, performance and security management automation functions that are best performed locally. Integrated out-of-band capabilities ensures you always have a secure connection to even the most remote gear.
The Uplogix platform is FIPS 140-2 compliant. Common federal applications for Local Management include:
The federal government operates some of the largest and most secure networks. It is no coincidence that they also have some of the most extensive deployments of local management. Here are some of the most common use cases in both civilian agencies and DoD networks.
Secure out-of-band access
When the network is functioning properly, Uplogix Local Managers (LMs) use an Ethernet-based connection to connect and transmit data to a centralized management system. However, when the primary network connection is lost, Uplogix can immediately establish remote connectivity using a dial-up modem, cellular network, or satellite communications. This gives you secure, always-on connectivity to remote devices. The survivable access you need even when the network is down.
IT policy auditing & reporting
Session logging captures and archives every keystroke and output, unlike network-based tools that fail to capture changes during a network outage. This enables policy compliance by monitoring and reporting all changes made to the managed IT infrastructure to satisfy internal and regulatory security standards. Uplogix satisfies numerous compliance standards by providing flexible reporting engine allowing you to report changes by device or people.
Synchronized network updates
You can push out new operating systems and configurations from a
central location, staging the update on the Uplogix Local Manager (LM) sitting in the rack with the gear it manages. When the update is pushed from the LM to the device, Uplogix will monitor the device independently of the network to determine success or failure. In situations where there is a problem, the device will be automatically rolled back to its previous state and flagged for attention in centralized management tools in the NOC.
Expedited network hardware refresh
Since OS and config files are stored locally on the Uplogix Local Manager, plug & play device swapping is a possibility in the event of a failure or system refresh, and rolling out a whole new network of gear across multiple sites can be simplified and standardized with Uplogix.
