Security of remote management confirmed by RSA

Uplogix : 19 July, 2007  (New Product)
Uplogix products for uninterrupted remote management interact with RSA two-factor authentication.
Uplogix has been awarded RSA Secured certification, confirming Uplogix remote management products' interoperability with industry leading two-factor authentication technology from RSA, the Security Division of EMC. Uplogix has also joined the RSA Secured Partner Program by meeting RSA's stringent criteria for excellence as a supplier of remote management solutions. The two companies will work together to provide enterprises with the most secure, and most robust, remote management solution on the market today.

As a result of technical cooperation between Uplogix and RSA Security, enterprises can benefit from unprecedented security and always-on connectivity to the IT devices being managed by Uplogix solutions. Using a RSA SecurID® hardware token, the Uplogix management appliance can now automatically and securely log into a managed device, such as a network router or server, to perform a necessary configuration or recovery action, just like a system administrator would normally do if performing the same operation manually.

Using Uplogix solutions, enterprises can consistently enforce RSA Security's powerful authentication solution whether managing IT devices in-band over the primary network connection when available, or using an out-of-band connection during network outages or disruptions.

"Through this technology partnership we are able to offer customers an added level of security when managing their distributed IT assets,' said Barry Cox, chief technology officer, Uplogix. 'By combining RSA Security's two-factor authentication technology and Uplogix' remote management solutions, customers get a consistent security interface regardless of when or how they access their IT devices."

The RSA SecurID system is the world's most widely used two-factor user authentication solution. It is as simple to use as entering a password, but significantly more secure. Used in conjunction with RSA Authentication Manager software, an RSA SecurID authenticator functions like an ATM card for a company network, requiring users to identify themselves with two unique factors — something they know (a password or PIN), and something they have (such as an RSA SecurID key fob token) — before they are granted access to secure business information.
