If you need to deploy several SecureSphere gateways, you shouldn’t have to configure each gateway separately. The MX Management Server consolidates administration, real-time alerting, auditing, and reporting of multiple gateways in a single, web-based console. The MX Management Server not only lowers your operational costs, it also ensures that your policies and profiles are consistent across your entire deployment.


Granularly Control User AccessGranularly Control User Access

You can ensure separation of duties and enable multi-tenant management with role-based access controls. Using these controls, you can create users and roles that define which policies, alerts, and reports administrators can view or edit. You can further segregate management responsibilities by limiting administrator access to specific web applications, sites, or server groups.

Accelerate Compliance and Incident Response with Graphical Reports

Quickly assess your security status and streamline compliance with pre-defined and custom reports. Out-of-the-box reports for PCI, SOX, HIPAA and FISMA enable you to effortlessly demonstrate compliance. Graphical reports can be created on-demand or scheduled for daily, weekly, or monthly distribution. The MX Management Server's information-rich reports provide instant visibility into security and compliance concerns.

SecureSphere Manager of Managers

SecureSphere Manager of Managers (MoM) federates multi-domain and multi-tenant environments that are deployed with multiple MX Management Servers. This enables the creation and distribution of centralized policies and reports without compromising the operational autonomy of individual business units, data centers or customer environments.

  • Manage multi-domain and multi-tenant environments
    SecureSphere Manager of Managers (MoM) easily manages large numbers of SecureSphere MX Management Servers in deployments spanning different datacenters, geographies, business units or customers. As a manager of managers, Security Operations Manager provides a single, overall point of control and visibility across the entire deployment.
  • Manage and distribute policies across all MX Management Servers
    Create, configure and apply security and audit policies from one management console across multiple MX Management Servers. A common set of policies can be applied across multiple domains, ensuring security and auditing are consistent across the environment. Federated management of auditing and security policies, and the ability to monitor this behavior enterprise wide, makes MoM a necessary component for deployments with multiple MX Management Servers.
  • Access each MX Management Server from one location
    In addition to aggregating information into a single user interface, the SecureSphere Operations Manager dashboard and charts enable quick drill-down access to individual MX Management Servers to perform policy configuration and detailed analysis.
  • Monitor environment health
    SecureSphere MoM provides a dashboard view of health for the entire deployment. The user interface delivers visibility into system wide performance and problem areas by aggregating performance and status metrics for individual MX Management Servers, Gateways and Agents.
  • View environment security activity
    SecureSphere MoM summarizes security alert volume and types to provide an overall view of security status. Administrators can quickly detect areas requiring further investigation or troubleshooting.
