Emerson Network Power Bolsters Security in Management Platform

Enhancements to Avocent Universal Management Gateway Appliance aim to reduce risk of intrusion and expand multi-vendor support.

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and provider of critical infrastructure for information and communications technology systems, has introduced new firmware updates to its Avocent Universal Management Gateway (UMG) appliance.

Designed to manage data center infrastructure through service processor, serial, and KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) connections, the enhanced Avocent UMG further refines root-level access controls, reducing the risk of malicious intrusion. The latest firmware release provides updated support for a list of service processors—including recent additions Oracle iLOM3, Dell iDrac8, and Dell Series C—and service processor firmware. These enhancements, and the†Avocent UMG’s ability to isolate the management network from the rest of the environment, offer an added layer of security†that bolsters overall data center security in multi-vendor environments.†

Other recent enhancements to the Avocent UMG are designed to bolster the system’s ability to provide alerts of failures and potential failures in multi-vendor environments. Data center managers can configure and opt-in to alerts tailored to the most relevant platform event traps (PETs)—including everything from the failure of the CPU, hard drive or server processor, to an OS blue screen—across multiple vendors and systems.

The consolidated management appliance boasts secure, centralized remote management of almost any device in any location. The enhanced Avocent UMG functions in a heterogeneous environment, identifying and accessing servers and service processors whether connected physically to the appliance or through the network. That access eliminates the need for inputting multiple IP credentials, logins and passwords, streamlining network operations, and machine-to-machine communication.

Users can save Avocent UMG configuration files from Web UI, an HTML-based application used to configure and manage appliances remotely, removing the need to go through setup every time the Avocent UMG configuration has been changed.
