Cradlepoint’s Enterprise Cloud Manager has proven itself to be a really good way to manage network connectivity for small-footprint distributed enterprises. Now transportation-related organizations like emergency services, police, shipping, metropolitan buses, school buses, taxis, and commercial fleets are discovering the benefits of ECM as well. One of the main reasons why is because Enterprise Cloud Manager makes the deployment, management, and monitoring of vehicle fleets very easy.

I’m very excited to announce that Cradlepoint introduced our new COR IBR1100 at the 2014 Euro Bus Expo, held 4 – 6 November 2014.

Cradlepoint has led the industry by making it very easy for our customers to choose their cellular carrier by virtue of our routers supporting “plug-n-play” modem technology. Customers can also change their modem (and carrier) to reduce their data costs or improve their connection or service level. This flexibility allows companies to take advantage of the competitive swings in the cellular market and change carriers when necessary to obtain the best combination of price and signal strength for each of their office locations.
As the old saying goes, when you’re being chased by a bear, you don’t have to run faster than the bear. You just have to run faster than the people you’re with. The same is true when it comes to data security.
I talked last week about how the Heartbleed bug was unique in how long it went undiscovered, how many things it affected, and how hard it was to tell if anyone had used it to access data. Today I’d like to talk about what Cradlepoint did to reestablish protections for our customers.
Now that the dust has settled in the aftermath of the Heartbleed bug, I thought it might be useful to summarize some of the things Cradlepoint learned and did that will help us better protect our clients in the future. Let me be clear that Cradlepoint acted swiftly to resolve the issues created by Heartbleed as soon as the vulnerability was discovered. I’ll talk about the remediation steps we took in my next post.
Cradlepoint recently announced that we’ve joined the CSA (Cloud Security Alliance), a not-for-profit organization that helps promote the use of best practices for security within cloud computing.

Part of a network manager’s job is to make sure the stakeholders in your projects understand what you are doing, why you’re doing it, and how well it’s working. Enterprise Cloud Manager provides you with the data to support what you’re doing—and it helps you communicate that information to people who may not feel comfortable diving deep inside the data.

As I said in my last post (See Your Network in Real Time), when you’re a network manager it’s helpful to be able to stay tuned in to any problem that might pop up—even when you’re away from your desk. That’s why we make it easy for you to monitor your network the same way you probably monitor a lot of other things: by creating alerts.
