Presentation

What's VOS Console?

VOS Console is the LITE/FREE version of Alert Manager. It is a complete set of practical monitoring tools that provides Browser interface to VOS and eliminates security risks associated with users working in a critical environment.
VOS-Console is a secure, read-only interface that allows access only to registered users and inherits all of VOS' security: login-admin and password management.
VOS-Console limits users only to their own customized, view-only VOS Console, will not be able to access the module via Telnet or FTP and will be audited every step of the way.
VOS Console does not requires any commitment, additional software, licenses or even configuration effort -- it will be up and running in a few minutes.
