What is Raritan’s CommandCenter Secure Gateway?

Posted on August 23, 2017 by Rick Gonedes  |  Comment (0)

For many, server management is something of a double-edged sword. As technology evolves and your infrastructure expands, management tends to get more difficult. As an industry leader with 30 years of innovation, Raritan has developed several products to help customers manage their IT infrastructure.  CommandCenter Secure Gateway is one such system designed to offer power, performance, customization, and innovation in one convenient package.

Server Management Your Way, Every Way

Raritan's CommandCenter Secure Gateway (also referred to as CC-SG) was built from the top down with versatility and ease of use. It's a single solution that is easy to deploy thanks to plug-and-play compatibility that guarantees that IT administrators, lab managers and everyone in between have the tools they need for true centralized server management across hundreds or thousands of systems.

CC-SG brings together multiple remote access technologies, including out-of-band access via Dominion KVM-over-IP switches and serial console servers, PX PDUs, service processors and in-band software access tools into a unified, secure single point of remote access and control. It offers highly secure, single sign-on to a single IP address for the comprehensive management of ALL of Raritan's serial and KVM-over-IP solutions, along with virtual machines and VMware infrastructure including ESX/ESXi server and vCenter environments.

The CC-SG also offers native compatibility with in-band methods like RDP, SSH, and VNC.

The CC-SG is already relied upon by customers all over the world from small to medium server rooms to large enterprises with multiple data centers. Wherever there is a need for secure and consolidated remote access and control, the CC-SG will be there to answer the call.

A Solution Designed With You in Mind

The CommandCenter Secure Gateway is available as both a hardware and virtual appliance in a number of distinct variations that you can choose from depending on your needs. These include options like:

  • The CC-E1 Hardware Appliance. Offers a capable 2U form factor with dual power supplies.
  • The CC-V1 Hardware Appliance. Available in a smaller 1U form factor with a single power supply.
  • The VMware Virtual Appliance.  Proudly running in VMware environments.
  • The Hyper-V Virtual Appliance. Built for infrastructures running Windows Server 2008 and 2012.
  • The XEN Virtual Appliance. Offering compatibility with XenServer 6.x that you can depend on.

Additional Benefits

Raritan's CommandCenter Secure Gateway was designed to provide centralized, role-based user access policy management when you need it the most. User access is incredibly flexible, you can pick between the HTML Access Client interface, the Administration Client, the Mobile KVM Client for smartphone or tablet PC access or even Java-free KVM access with the HTML and Active KVM Clients.

Another running theme with this impressive feature set can be summed up in a single word: visibility. Simple and intuitive "node view" lets users easily identify and access any target system or device through all of the aforementioned interfaces, while incredibly comprehensive reporting capabilities on everything from usage to auditing to assets and nodes make sure that users have the complete picture at all times.

Thanks in large part to its low-security profile and Linux-based appliance architecture, the CommandCenter Secure Gateway also offers powerful and robust security which is mission-critical in the modern society. It's available in both 128-bit and 256-bit AES encryption for end-to-end node access activity through all AES-enabled Dominion devices, for example. It offers other advanced features like a proxy mode for secure access to devices through firewalls and virtual private networks.

All of this comes together to provide a powerful, hardened and secure access platform that delivers true, uncompromising peace of mind to IT managers who need reliable, secure access to vital corporate resources. To learn more visit the CC-SG web page.
