Enterprise Linux Today: Digi International Launches Secure Console Management Product Line

Feb 14, 2002, 06:34 (1 Talkback[s])
"Digi International*, Inc. , the leader in Connectware, today introduced the new PortServer CM*, a product line focused on the demanding requirements of data center managers.

The PortServer CM enables system administrators to monitor and control IT equipment such as Unix and Linux servers, routers, network switches, intelligent power supplies and telephone switches, through industry standard serial console ports. Administrators can securely monitor and control any mix of connected devices from anywhere on the corporate network, including standard TCP/IP connections over Ethernet LANs or dial-up modem connections.

The PortServer CM provides the highest level of security available for serial console connections. Using Secure Shell (SSH v2), a robust, standards-based security interface, PortServer CM protects against unauthorized data monitoring (also known as "sniffing") and provides access to approved users on a per port basis. PortServer CM's Sun Safe feature protects against any unintentional break signals affecting Sun servers."
