What is the Central Management Console (CMC)?

HDF Central Management Console (CMC) is a monitoring and management tool for HDF-protected computers within the company/organization. It is a web-based application with a combination of functionality such as log collection, log analysis, log query (report), realtime monitoring and management. With the CMC, authorised IT administrators can easily view real-time HDF log information showing the status of HDF clients, security trends, security alarms, and can interrogate the HDF operating parameters as well as system and hardware information.

Making Security Management Simple and Cost-Effective


Each CMC can accept between 200 and 2500 HDF clients depending on target environment.  CMCs can be placed in a hierarchy as required to mimic the tree-like structure of the organisation.


This means that there is effectively no upper limit to the number of HDFs that can be monitored and controlled, thereby providing a dynamically extendable protective monitoring solution.
