Saves maintenance effort
The BiGuard CMS series provides a service provider with a single
system to manage all the remote network devices for their end customers
to enforce the management policy from a central site. A one-tomany
configuration feature in the BiGuard CMS Pro minimizes the effort
needed to manage various network devices at dispersed sites when
implementing firewall policies, filtering rules and other global objects.
Highly secured management
All the managed data of a remote network device in the pipeline is
encrypted with an HTTPS mechanism to avoid hacker attacks. The
remote administrator identification from service providers is qualified
A “click–on” web-based interface makes it easy to add devices,
upgrade firmware and carry out all other remote configuration
functions. It’s even easy to install the BiGuard CMS series by using a
Grouping device management
The devices can be clustered for group-based remote management
instead of one-by-one. In addition, the administrator can choose to
display the devices with a tree view or list view.
Historical reports for analysis
BiGuard CMS series also offers a list of historical reports to allow the
administrator to analyze the bandwidth usage, event log statistics, alarm
event statistics and firmware upgrade results.
Automatic management with time schedule
What makes the BiGuard CMS series very convenient is that it allows the
administrator to set up the management policies with time scheduling, for
example back up data every day, or upgrade firmware at 8pm or after
office hours. The policies will be automatically launched according to
schedule without requiring an administrator onsite.
The firmware upgrades of remote network devices can be performed on
demand, whenever the administrator thinks it is necessary. BiGuard CMS
Pro is available by upgrade from the previous BiGuard CMS Lite without
the need to reconfigure existing settings.
More platforms supported
Using a Java-based design, the BiGuard CMS series supports hardware
platform for Intel-X86-based devices and software platforms such as MS
Windows XP, and later MS Windows 2000(*) and Linux(*).
Real time monitoring and alerts
BiGuard CMS Pro supports centralized event logging and alerting. When
an alarm happens, it is able to receive the alert and notify the administrator
via an alarm event and send an email alert at the same time. The administrator
is able to monitor the status of all devices through BiGuard CMS Pro
and take action in real time when abnormal events occur.
