One unsecured data port—that’s all it takes

A recent study conducted by HIMSS Analytics™ found that 52% of large hospitals reported a network security breach during the previous year. The HITECH Act requires electronic security for health records—a task that becomes ever more difficult in the face of today’s malware and other advanced threats.

Are you ready for HITECH?

Network access control (NAC) is essential to any complete network security plan. NAC protects your network by preventing unauthorized devices from connecting inside your network through ports or wireless connections. Unknown laptops can plug in, but they can’t connect. Unauthorized wireless devices can see your signal, but they can’t get on—even if they have the password. Continue reading

Conveniently manage devices right over your network

Many network devices have serial console ports to provide secondary access through a serial cable without using the network the device is connected to. The trouble is, though, that everything you do is over the network and you DO want network access to console ports.

Value Line Secure Device ServerYou especially want network access to console ports if you have just one or two devices somewhere at the other end of the building, in the next building over, or a thousand miles away in your Kissimmee office.

Are you going to visit that router in Kissimmee with a laptop and a serial cable?

We don’t think so.

Getting your remote network access to a faraway console port is the job of a device server such as our Value Line Secure Device Server. Just connect the device server to your network and to the console port you wish to access for instant access across your network—even the Internet. And don’t worry about security, the Value Line Secure Device Server may be value priced, but it still comes with a complete set of security features, including SSH encryption, SSH tunneled serial bridging, and more.

The Value Line Secure Device Server comes in 1-port (LES1101A) and 2-port (LES1102A) versions. To learn more, call 888-245-6215 or visit blackbox.com/go/ValueSDS.
