Aug 15, 2000, 18:34 (0 Talkback[s])

"Mission Critical Linux today announced that their cutting-edge SST (Secure Service Technology) will be offered as an ASP service. SST, which securely harnesses the power of the Internet to provide real-time management of mission-critical environments, enables system administrators to remotely access their systems to perform all the necessary tasks to monitor, diagnose, and maintain their systems. The unique technology can be deployed on all major Linux distributions."

"SST, which is hosted by Mission Critical Linux, addresses the challenges faced by organizations needing an immediate and cost-effective resolution to system problems from remote sites. System administrators can now have access to their operating environments 24 hours a day from any Web-based browser. The patented technology also allows systems status to be monitored from a Palm VII handheld. SST may be used to trigger customized alerts in response to system anomalies such as degraded performance or hardware errors. The alerts may be programmed to issue real-time notification to customers' centralized support staff. SST provides the ability for customers to integrate their existing diagnostic and management tools into this secure service infrastructure, delivering a total solution for remote management."

"Using 128-bit encryption and VeriSign's digital certificates, SST provides the same high level of security that Fortune 1000 companies use today when transmitting the most sensitive data over the Internet. Furthermore, SST uses multilevel authentication and authorization to safeguard access to customers' environments. Customers maintain complete control over when their systems may be accessed, by whom and the privilege level granted. SST is deployed without requiring customers to open conduits through their corporate firewalls."
