Unified Management Center

The UserGate Management Center (UGMC) is an add-on component for the UserGate universal firewall that makes it possible to manage a large number of appliances. The UserGate Management Center provides a single point of control to apply the required settings, and create policies to be applied to groups of devices to ensure corporate network security.

Key Features

The UGMC enables centralized configuration of all UserGate firewall parameters: network settings, firewall rules, content filtering, intrusion detection systems, etc. The UserGate Management Center offers users a systematic approach to configuring settings using templates, as well as the ability to transparently apply these settings to selected firewalls.

UserGate firewall management can be divided into 4 stages:

  • Creation of a managed area;
  • Creation of a template or several templates, each template will define its own part of the firewall settings;
  • Combining the required templates into a group in the necessary order to produce the correct configuration for the managed UserGate devices;
  • Adding a managed device and applying a template group to it.

If necessary, after applying the templates, the settings can be changed so that they apply to all firewalls to which the templates are applied.

For small businesses, branch offices, POS-systems, schools, Wi-Fi hotspots

UserGate Management Center C offers easy-to-implement and centralized management features for network administrators. This solution allows to simplify deployment, and management of your UserGate products.

For large enterprise networks and telecom providers

Organizations with multiple branches, where a company-wide security policy must be applied to each device and lots of firewalls are used, require a single control center. UserGate Management Center E can manage a number of firewalls from a single point.

Virtual Firewall

For organizations that prefer a virtual platform

UserGate Management Center can be deployed on the customer's virtual infrastructure. UserGate Management Center virtual comes with two Ethernet interfaces. The functionality of our virtual solution is completely equivalent to that of the UserGate hardware system.
