You can do it without a VPN or leased line, and without purchasing, installing, configuring, or managing a server.
Cost-effective, pain-free remote systems management
The LANDesk Cloud Services Appliance lets you securely manage remote users without buying or maintaining a VPN or leased line. And without purchasing, installing, configuring or maintaining a server. Simply plug in the appliance for a hassle-free way to manage and secure systems anytime, anywhere. Automatic updates keep your appliance up-to-date. And built-in system backup and recovery ensures your configuration and log information is always available. Choose to run a backup weekly or monthly. The appliance automatically backs itself up to not one, but two redundant internal disks to ensure you always have what you need.
Enabling secure, anytime anywhere managementProduct Highlights
The appliance acts as a meeting place for the remote client and your core server, even if servers are behind firewalls or rely on a proxy to access the Internet. The functionality is similar to an email Web portal where users communicate through the machine's firewall to connect to the portal and then connect through the corporate perimeter firewall to the backend email server. The LANDesk Cloud Services Appliance brokers a secure socket-layer (SSL) connection between the managed system and the backend LANDesk core server where LANDesk Management Suite and/or LANDesk Security Suite are installed. A certificate issued from the core server secures a pipeline and establishes a trusted relationship. All data is SSL encoded. Management agents on remote systems authenticate to and obtain a client certificate from the core server, authorizing the management agents on the client systems to communicate with the management services on the core server through the appliance.
