ConsoleWorks is an enterprise-level privileged access portal that monitors, manages, logs, remediates, reports, and secures physical (routers, switches, servers, etc.), logical (SANs and applications, for example), and virtual infrastructure at the lowest level, in all machine states, including operating, service, configuration, and maintenance modes.
ConsoleWorks Privileged Interactive Access functionality provides the foundation for security and operations to the automation and integration platform. Once ConsoleWorks has knowledge of the various devices, it basically has the ability to take the place of a human in performing many of the mundane functions that may be required.
In addition to the fundamental Access features built into the core product, having access enables ConsoleWorks to perform Asset and Configuration Monitoring more comprehensively versus today’s manual processes. Once ConsoleWorks has access, it performs automated Endpoint Password Management on IT or OT assets. It aggregates any and all log files to provide true Situational Awareness by interlacing those logs, line-by-line and applying a common time stamp.
Finally, with the robust Asset and Configuration Monitoring, ConsoleWorks Patch Gap Analysis has the configuration information retrieved directly from each device – the most accurate source of the information.
Privileged Interactive Access is the power that drives the integrated functionality of the ConsoleWorks platform.
Instead of putting agents on your systems, ConsoleWorks uses a unique blend of connectors, centralized web servers, and out-of-band technologies to implement a robust, high availability, lights-out management solution. ConsoleWorks is designed to minimize operational disruption and mean-time-to-repair, and includes the following features:
- Agentless Monitoring
- Log Aggregation
- Audit & Compliance Reporting
- Session management
- Command Control
- Event Management
