Network Management for Small Businesses That’s Simple and Secure


I welcome Michael Proper, ClearCenter CEO, to our blogging community and am excited to have him tell the HPE and ClearOS IT management and network story.

Blog_ClearOS_2_6_13.jpgLet’s be honest. Managing a network today for a small business can be a mess. You may splurge on a decent firewall appliance but then you’re forced by budget restraints into hastily throwing together a few different hardware and software products just to try and keep control over everything else. All too often in these scenarios overall security gets sacrificed along the way.

Tackling your network challenges

A new Hewlett Packard Enterprise and ClearOS partnership gives you a simple, secure and centralized way to properly take on any networking challenge. An HPE ProLiant server running ClearOS and a few apps from the ClearOS Marketplace can replace everything you’re using today to manage your network.

The ClearOS Network Layer includes multiple firewall choices, DMZ, DNS, NAT, DHCP, bandwidth control, QoS, dynamic VPN, network visualizers, reporting tools and everything else you need to securely deploy and manage your LAN. You’ll even have access to advanced features through apps like Multi-WAN, an aggregation app that easily connects your LAN to multiple Internet connections for redundancy and better performance. ClearOS also seamlessly integrates with many hybrid cloud products including Netify, which gives you ultimate insight into LAN and WAN traffic.

ClearOS is the only IT management platform that is simultaneously simple, affordable, and secure. Try ClearOS now on HPE ProLiant servers.
