Astaro Command Centre

This appliance aims to give resellers complete remote management capabilities. The hardware, which is compatible with all Astaro gateway appliances, software and virtual deployments, is available in four models – 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000 – which support the management of 20, 50, 100 and 200 gateway appliances, respectively. The Command Center is based on the same architecture and features the same user interface as Astaro Security Gateway. Its monitoring functions can cover several customers’ security installations with custom levels of permission. A key feature of the appliance is the use of two GUIs: One for the gateway owner and one for the MSSP, allowing the end user to view only his company’s gateway(s), while the service provider has access to all gateways managed by the device, regardless of organisation. The Astaro Command Center also acts as a cache for updates and push out to all managed gateways, avoiding duplicate downloads and saving network resources.
