The MultiAppliance-Basic appropriate for small and medium sized businesses.
IT administrators and engineers prefer to purchase “solution-in-a-box” as they only need to work with a single vendor for any issue (both hardware and software) with the solution. This means, solutions which come in an appliance are always preferred. In today’s complex IT security world, a com-pany typically needs to purchase various different security solutions to complete their security/defense needs. This will mean having to manage and maintain a rack of appliances from different security vendors. The in-vestment and management/maintenance cost is high. If the currently used software solution no longer meets the requirements and is to be changed, there is often no further use for the purchased hardware on which the soft-ware was operated. The problem is that the software is tied to the hard-ware of the provider and therefore not suitable for a change. Typically, re-placement of the whole appliance is required. This is expensive.
With SECUDOS‘s MultiAppliances, companies are now able to save on their IT security investments. At the same time, the company enjoys a host of flexibility with allocation of resources and switching of vendors. The SECUDOS MultiAppliances lets the IT administrator install, host and ma-nage all the required IT security solutions as virtual servers (VPS) on one single appliance platform. Should the company decide to change a firewall vendor or an anti-virus vendor, it can easily be done through firing up a new VPS for the new software and shutting down the old. The only new in-vestment here is the license fee for the new software, there is no need to allocate budget for new hardware. The “hardware” resources used to run the old software is recycled and used in the new software.
In just one SECUDOS MultiAppliance platform, a company can install and host all its applications with SECUDOS as its long term support partner.
