SEH Technology Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of network solutions innovator SEH Computertechnik GmbH, announced its next-generation, plug-and-play utnserver Pro USB device server, which replaces and is backward compatible with its predecessor, the myUTN-50a USB device server.
IT departments can use this entry-level, dual USB port device to connect end-users to the USB devices they need to access in industrial, office or small office/home office (SOHO) environments. The utnserver Pro can be extended by connecting a USB hub to one of the USB ports.
“The COVID-19 pandemic created an urgent need for fast, dependable access to remote devices,” said Mike Majewski, president of SEH Technology Inc. “With the utnserver Pro in place, remote users can access devices and equipment that are meant to be used in a local environment.”
Today’s businesses need fast, reliable and secure access to technology assets regardless of where employees are working in the office or from home. Toward that end, the utnserver Pro connects USB devices via its two USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports and a secure Ethernet connection to the network, creating a virtual USB cable extension to anywhere. It supports any device with a USB port including external hard drives, dongles, card readers, barcode scanners, measuring devices and DRX backup systems.
All SEH Technology USB device servers, including the utnserver Pro, can be managed using the SEH Product Manager software for point-and-click device administration and the utnserver Control Center for point-and-click configuration, administration, monitoring and maintenance.
And since security concerns are at an all-time high, the utnserver Pro takes advantage of TLS 1.3 encryption, IEEE 802.1X authentication, certificate management, SNMPv3, VLAN (IEEE 802.1Q), TCP port access control, device access control, USB port access control and USB HID class blocking. Connections to USB devices can be made via LAN, VPN, VLAN and the Internet as well as server-based and virtualized environments.
