How It Works

The Universal Automation Center consists of three enterprise workload components, Universal Controller, Universal Agent, and Universal Data Mover, to centrally manage and orchestrate tasks and processes across hybrid IT environments - from on-prem to the cloud.
Universal Controller

Universal Controller (UC) is a feature-rich software product with over twenty years of progressive development. As part of the Stonebranch Universal Automation Center (UAC), the Stonebranch UC is your centralized command-center for IT orchestration and automation.

Easily create real-time workflows across any on-prem, cloud, or hybrid IT environment. The UC features browser-based access, self-service enablement for business users, visual drag-and-drop workflow design, and integrations with just about any third-party solution you throw at it. Plus, you have the option to deploy the UC on-premises or via SaaS.

Universal Agent

Universal Agent protects your existing automation technology investments, allowing you to pursue a ‘best of breed’ approach for your individual automation needs. Being vendor-independent, Universal Agent can be used by any automation engine or product and is available for all systems or platforms where automation processes need to be executed. Coming from classical batch processing – also referred to as scheduling or workload automation – Universal Agent can execute and control any kind of automation process on any remote system. Simple open-application interfaces allow any automation engine to easily connect to the Universal Agent infrastructure and to execute any process while gaining full control.

Universal Data Mover

Universal Data Mover (UDM) is a unique Managed File Transfer solution that serves as a sub-component of the Universal Agent (UA). UDM helps enterprises to orchestrate their data supply chain as part of their automation and transformation initiatives. UDM monitors data availability, triggers business processes upon data availability, transfers data from any platform, in any format in a secure, reliable and regulatory way.

Universal Data Mover supports all key standard protocols like FTP, SFTP, FTPS and also proprietary, regulatory compliant UDM protocol. In combination with its UDM Gateway component, it supports great variety of classical B2B protocols.

Universal Data Mover Gateway

Universal Data Mover Gateway (UDMG) is an enterprise-grade B2B managed file transfer (MFT) solution designed to securely move data between your internal network and third-party partners. Enterprises are enabled to move data in real-time based on system events. Plus, B2B data transfers are highly secure and adhere to industry and compliance protocols.  

As part of the Universal Automation Center (UAC), UDMG makes it simple to incorporate B2B file transfers into automation workflows that go far beyond simply moving data. Plus, you gain complete auditability of all file transfers inside and outside your network.
