Are your alarm remotes secured against unauthorized intruders? RADIUS technology is an industry-standard authentication method, and now the NetGuardian 832A can interact with your RADIUS server, integrating it as part of your enterprise management.
RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In User Service) is an industry-standard way to manage logins to many different types of equipment in one central location. The basic architecture is very simple: many RADIUS devices connect to a central RADIUS server. Every time a device receives a login attempt (usually a username & password), it requests an authentication from the central RADIUS server. If the username & password combination is found in the server's database, an affirmative "access granted" reply is sent back to the device, which allows the user to connect. Also included in the reply are the user's individual access rights, so different users can be granted different privilege levels. If the user's login attempt is not found, a rejection is returned instead.
NetGuardian remotes have a long history of protecting access to your alarms. For many years, they've required a username and password for remote access. Now, with the ability to pass login attempts to your RADIUS server, you gain several additional advantages:
RADIUS is supported by any NetGuardian G5 platform (832A or 864A, with or without hardware acceleration). To hear more about how the NetGuardian and RADIUS will work in your own network just reach out to us.
