Managing UserGate appliances | UserGate Management Center

UserGate management center

UserGate Management Center (UGMC) is an add-on component for the UserGate next generation firewall that allows you to manage a large number of appliances. UserGate Management Center centralizes UserGate management at a single point from which an administrator can monitor UserGate servers, apply required settings, and create policies applied to device groups to ensure corporate network security. UGMC allows you to unify approaches to configuring settings with templates as well as to transparently apply these settings to a selected part of your firewalls.

Basic features

UGMC allows you to globally configure all the parameters of your UserGate firewalls, including network settings, firewall rules, content filtering, intrusion prevention system, and other settings. UserGate Management Center templates allow to unify approaches to configuring settings as well as to transparently apply these settings to a group of your UserGate firewalls.

UserGate firewall management can be divided into four steps:

  • Creating a managed area;
  • Creating a template or several templates, each of which specifies its own part of the firewall settings;
  • Combining certain templates into a group for a desired final configuration of managed UserGate devices;
  • Adding a managed device and applying a template group to it.

If necessary, the template settings can be changed so that these changes apply to all firewalls associated with the templates.

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.
