Opengear’s Lighthouse Wins 2020 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award for Centralized & Secure Out-of-Band Management

SmartOOB and NetOps Automation Leader Sets New Standard for Cloud Security and Network Resilience

EDISON, New Jersey – September 30, 2020 – OpengearDigi International company (NASDAQ: DGII), and a leading provider of solutions that deliver secure, resilient network access and automation to critical IT infrastructure,  announced today that TMC has named the Lighthouse Centralized Management Solution as a winner of the 2020 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Awards.

The Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award, presented by Cloud Computing magazine, recognizes companies that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, innovative offerings to market. Opengear’s Lighthouse was selected as an industry leading solution for Cloud Security, as the platform delivers unparalleled network resilience and smart management tools for cloud providers.

“The rise of IoT and edge has put incredible strain on data center infrastructure, which must now support new points of failure and vulnerabilities,” said Steve Cummins, VP Marketing at Opengear. “With remote access monitoring and provisioning, Lighthouse was designed to secure cloud infrastructure and networks as they become increasingly complex. This award solidifies all the capabilities Lighthouse has to offer, and we look forward to helping more organizations future proof their networks for today and tomorrow.”

The Lighthouse Centralized Management solution from Opengear is a centralized out-of-band management platform specifically designed for users with a focus on security, scalability, and preparing for a future of network automation. The solution leverages Opengear’s SmartOOB technology to separate the management plane from the production plane, which is generally prone to attacks on user data. Smart tools like failover to cellular and NetOps automation work in concert with OOB to provide essential benefits ranging from remote monitoring and management to continued internet connectivity during an ISP outage, thus minimizing the need for human intervention and lost revenue resulting from business disruption. These smart tools are essential to swiftly detecting, reacting to and neutralizing security breaches, and have become indispensable to Fortune 100 and 500 companies industrywide.

“Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC and Cloud Computing magazine are proud to announce Opengear’s Lighthouse Centralized Management Solution as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Opengear is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to this crucial market segment, and during a time in which cloud security has never been more critical or complex.”
