The MDC includes all connectivity and cable management components necessary to enable rapid installation of switch, server, and storage devices. Available in 24RU and 42RU cabinet configurations and offering enough room for growth without increasing the control room footprint, the MDC allows for installation of standard 29-inch (737mm) depth equipment. Each MDC incorporates casters to simplify deployment and is easily expanded by purchasing add-on kits from Panduit. All metal elements within the cabinet are single-point bonded to ensure effective equipment grounding. A dynamic rated MDC is available to support IT equipment under typical shipping conditions. This is ideal for system integrators or Value Added Resellers (VARs), as it allows the equipment to be pre-installed, cabled and ready for quick deployment. The heavy duty reinforced frame and shock pallet have been tested and approved to support the additional weight of equipment and a reuseable ramp allows the cabinet to be easily unloaded from the pallet. All MDCs meet EIA-310-E, TIA/EIA-942 and UL2416 specifications.

The new products provide attack visibility for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and hybrid cloud data centre workloads. Leveraging all of the existing behavioural profiling and anomaly detection capabilities available in the Magna platform, the new Magna Detector-AWS and Magna Probe-AWS products support deployment within an organisation’s AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). LightCyber also announced a new version of its agentless, on-demand Magna Pathfinder for Linux to extend integrated network and endpoint detection features to one of the most common data centre server platforms. The new LightCyber Magna products detect the operational activities of malicious insiders or targeted external attackers attempting to gain control of assets hosted in an AWS cloud data centre or using it as a point for command and control (C&C) communication and eventual exfiltration of data. Similar to an on-premise data centre, once attackers gain a foothold, they need to explore the environment through reconnaissance and must expand their realm of control to gain access to assets using lateral movement.
