Use Case

A typical Use Case is a company looking to increase operational efficiency and lower the complexity of their Security Management platform. With the Smart-1 Cloud application, companies can focus and invest more effort in managing their security.

Tasks such as maintenance efforts, keeping up to date with the latest software version and security updates, running backups, and health status checks all require quality effort and time. Also, as companies expand, you need to align your security solutions correctly, which may need new hardware and migration processes. A transfer of these, and other, IT management tasks to Smart-1 Cloud application significantly improves a company's security management, and enables you to focus on what is really important - your business.

The deployment process of a new Management Service in Smart-1 Cloud takes about 1 minute. After the deployment is complete, you receive a new Management with the latest version - ready to connect gateways. An existing customer can choose to migrate their on-premises environment to Smart-1 Cloud. After the migration, you can continue to work from the exact same point that you stopped working before the migration (your on-premises management). See Migrate.
