SNMP Research Announces DSSP Internet Management Appliance-RF

Knoxville, TN, March 7, 2007—SNMP Research is pleased to announce an important addition to its Distributed SNMP Security Pack (DSSP) product line: the DSSP Internet Management Appliance-RF. The DSSP Remote Forwarder is now available pre-installed on an embedded Linux appliance. This appliance can be installed on any TCP/IP network along with the DSSP Server to enable SNMP traffic and management through firewalls.

By default, many network managers prohibit UDP traffic, including SNMP, through firewalls. Some reasons include:

The blocked UDP traffic can cause problems when trying to manage a multi-site network or a local network that spans routers.

The DSSP product line provides three products that resolve these security concerns:

Like other DSSP products, the DSSP Remote Forwarder uses the SNMPv3 protocol and encrypted TCP tunnels through firewalls. DSSP Server, with either the DSSP Remote Forwarder or DSSP Internet Management Appliance-RF at the other end of the tunnel, provides a secure solution to network administrators who wish to use the SNMP protocols for monitoring and control throughout their networks.
