Cyberoam Central Console

The Cyberoam Central Console (CCC) appliances enable Enterprises and MSSPs to centrally manage Cyberoam network security appliances deployed across branch offices or customer offices. Providing flexibility of hardware and virtual platforms, CCC appliances simplify centralized security management, reduce administrative overhead and aid compliance reporting for distributed enterprises and MSSPs as required for their growing networks.

Virtual CCC

Next-Generation Management series of CCC appliances (CCC NM) deliver high performance from underlying powerful new hardware and fulfill demanding processing needs to support security policy enforcement in large, complex and dispersed networks.

With effective centralized controls, CCC NM appliances give IT Managers and MSSPs the confidence to centrally manage multiple sites while allowing adequate flexibility and manageability. In addition, CCC NM appliances offer a range of features that help simplify security management for actions like rapid deployment of organization-wide security policies and updates, intelligent grouping of Cyberoam appliances on various meaningful criteria, role-based administration, template-based configuration and more to better protect dispersed networks, resulting in benefits of reduced cost, complexity and time.

Deployment scenario:

The virtual CCC appliances support VMware and Hyper-V virtualization platforms and offer full set of features as the CCC hardware appliances. By allowing organizations to use virtual environment, the virtual CCC appliances eliminate the need for dedicated hardware, reduce cost of ownership and simplify future upgrades. With the virtual CCC appliances, customers can manage up to 5 Cyberoam network security appliances without any license fee, beyond which Appliance Licenses can be purchased. The virtual CCC appliances can manage both hardware as well as virtual Cyberoam security appliances.

Virtual CCC appliance range: CCCV15, CCCV50, CCCV100, CCCV200, CCCV500

Centralized Policy Management & Security Updates– CCC simplifies security management by enabling centralized policy creation and implementation and signature updates for Cyberoam network security appliances deployed at branch offices and client offices for all security features like Firewall, Intrusion Prevention System, Anti-Virus scanning, and more. This allows real-time protection against zero-hour threats in enterprises and reduces response time against newly identified threats across multiple customer networks of MSSPs.

With a single, web-based GUI across all security features, CCC ensures centralized policy implementation, simplifying security management and maintaining high levels of security across all customer locations and remote offices despite the lack of technical resources at these locations. Update of rules and policies can be centrally scheduled for individual or groups of network security appliances.

Intelligent Grouping of Appliances – CCC provides flexibility to manage security across various offices and clients by allowing meaningful grouping of security appliances based on their geography, Cyberoam network security appliance models, Firmware versions, organizations (especially for MSSPs), and service subscriptions. Enhanced with Web 2.0 benefits, the dynamic views in CCC provide at-a-glance information on the dashboard that helps in managing, searching and sorting appliances by firmware versions, appliance models and all appliances. This helps in quick monitoring and action. CCC offers flexibility in sorting appliance views on the dashboard by allowing customizable selection criteria for sorting.

Template-based Configuration – CCC allows creation of policy templates based on best practices for re-use by enterprises and MSSPs. Template-based policies allow enterprises to extend security policies for new branch offices in minimal time and enable MSSPs to apply vertical-focused policies for their new customers in minimal time.

CCC API – CCC API enables enterprises and MSSPs to leverage their existing Business Process Automation tools and IT Infrastructure monitoring & ticketing systems, and efficiently integrate with CCC to derive the benefits of improved usability and efficiency of overall operations. CCC API integration with ConnectWise PSA strengthens Cyberoam’s offerings for MSSPs by enabling automatic ticket generation and resolution of key CCC alerts and events in ConnectWise PSA, allowing accelerated process automation for managed security services.

Change Control and Logging – CCC allows tracking and rolling back configuration changes of managed Cyberoam appliances. Enterprises and MSSPs can audit policy or device changes to review compliance and track deviations from the required security policy.

Integration with Cyberoam iView – CCC can be integrated with Cyberoam iView, eliminating the need for separate consoles to control and manage Cyberoam security appliances. CCC automatically syncs administrators and managed appliances under CCC with Cyberoam iView, reducing complexities, time and efforts.

Role-based Administration – CCC enables enterprises and MSSPs to set role-based administration for CCC hardware and virtual appliances as well as individual Cyberoam security appliance and group of Cyberoam security appliances.

Audit Logs and Alerts – CCC’s Log Viewer offers logs and views of administrator actions on CCC as well as dispersed Cyberoam network security appliances, which helps in investigative analysis, supports regulatory compliance as well as keeps track of historical activities across distributed networks.

Email alerts can be set for individual or group of Cyberoam security appliances across branch offices and client offices based on expiry of subscription modules, excess disk usage, IPS and virus threat counts, unhealthy surfing hits and other parameters. CCC’s alert configuration facility helps enterprises and MSSPs reduce false alarms. Administrators can set an alert when the CPU usage reaches above 90% for a specific time period (say 20 minutes) instead of setting an alert when it momentarily peaks to 90% – which can trigger a false alarm.
