Robust Remote Access

The Core Edition is ideal for remote troubleshooting and maintenance, allowing IT admins to remote-in to servers, network gear, PDUs, storage, and the full IT stack. Users can fix or manage equipment at their data centers, colocations, or branch offices, with low-level access to the CLI or web interface of any connected vendor devices. IT admins can resolve break-fix scenarios as if they were physically on site.

Gen 3 Security Built In

The Synopsys-validated codebase (Black Duck, Coverity, WhiteHat) and more than a dozen other security features offer the Gen 3 protection that’s trusted by hyperscalers and big tech. IT staff can use 2FA/MFA of their choice to achieve a zero trust security posture. It’s all backed by Nodegrid OS’s responsive engineering team that patches critical CVEs within 72 hours and pushes several major releases annually.

Simple To Manage

The Core Edition establishes a two-way-authenticated connection to ZPE Cloud, which allows IT admins to gain secure remote access from anywhere (even the coffee shop). For all devices connected to the Core Edition, ZPE Cloud gives a centralized, bird’s-eye view. There’s no need for juggling spreadsheets filled with IP addresses and locations. Admins can click in to target devices and perform the tasks they need. It’s that simple.

Why Choose The Core Edition?

The Core Edition is ideal for addressing common break-fix use cases in data centers, colocations, and branch offices. IT admins use this to gain secure, low-level remote access to the entire IT stack and thereby eliminate the need for truck rolls. With up to 48 ports, 5G cellular, and security-in-layers design, organizations choose the Core Edition as the powerful and resilient replacement for traditional console server solutions.
