Software-based solution provides single-pane-of-glass management for Array’s application delivery, secure access and network functions platform product portfolio
Milpitas, CA – June 5, 2018 – Array Networks Inc. the network functions platform company, today announced the release of the Array Management Platform (AMP), which provides comprehensive management and granular user and system monitoring for Array’s application delivery controller and SSL VPN portfolio of products. AMP provides easy insight into user behaviors for analysis and audit purposes, as well as device and service status to allow at-a-glance visualization of trends and performance issues.
Through a single, service-oriented and user-centric WebUI, IT can monitor and manage dedicated Array appliances, or Array virtual appliances running in private cloud environments or on Array’s AVX Series Network Functions Platforms. AMP provides real-time visibility into the managed devices and the services associated with them. Device monitoring provides statistics on network traffic and CPU and memory usage, with the ability to alert based upon pre-set thresholds. Associated services are also monitored to allow faster identification of performance and security issues.
AMP also provides extensive logging of user behaviors, such as login/logout time, endpoint type, login method, sent/received traffic and session duration. Individual user session information is also logged for Layer 3 and Layer 7 access to support forensics and root cause analysis.
AMP streamlines and simplifies management, configuration and updating of managed devices, and provides license management to allow viewing and applying device licenses as needed. The AMP dashboard provides fast access to management operations and toolkits, as well as direct access to managed devices’ onboard WebUIs or web consoles.
Configurations are automatically backed up to AMP as devices are added, and stored in a version or history trail. Configuration templates can be created and edited from the stored configuration files, and applied to a single device or multiple devices. Compliance checking analyzes and displays differences between a selected device’s back-up and running configurations. AMP runs on CentOS in standard virtual environments.
“Regulatory compliance and insider threats are two big areas that heavily impact IT department workloads” said Paul Andersen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Array Networks. “With AMP’s single pane of glass, now IT managers can quickly visualize possible data exfiltration attempts and user abuse of corporate resources, for example, and compliance becomes infinitely easier through centralized management and device configuration templates.”
