What is RADIUS?
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 RADIUS makes it easy to integrate your remotes into your overall enterprise management
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:
The 3 Key Advantages of NetGuardian 832A G5 RADIUS:
- Virtually unlimited users. With RADIUS, the number of user logins you can support is huge. It's almost inconceivable that you would ever run out.
- Centralized management. You'll also be able to manage your logins from your central RADIUS server. You'll never have to worry about updating any single remote. If an employee leaves your company, you can revoke their access rights very easily.
- Integration with enterprise management. When your alarm remotes use the same RADIUS authentication method as your other important gear, you significantly reduce the complexity of managing your equipment. It's always easier to manage a single umbrella than it is to keep track of several unrelated systems.
