2. Introduction

UserGate Management Center (UGMC) is a product that allows you to control a large number of managed devices. A managed device can be a UserGate Next-Generation Firewall (UG MD) or a UserGate LogAn data collection and analysis device (LogAn MD).

UGMC provides a single point of control allowing an administrator to monitor managed devices, apply settings, and create policies applied to device groups to ensure corporate network security. UGMC helps you to manage and maintain a distributed fleet of UserGate Next-Generation Firewalls and UserGate LogAn data collection and analysis devices more effectively. The number of managed devices that can be connected is limited only by the license.

UGMC is available as a hardware and software system (HSC, appliance) or as a virtual machine image (virtual appliance) designed to be deployed in a virtual environment.
