Remote rebooting hardware?


What recommendations/warnings can people give for remote rebooting hardware? I'm looking for an IP-controlled power switch, the ultimate in "when all else fails, bounce the box"

And what's the security like on these things? Are there ha><ors who spend all their time looking for places they can cycle the power?

I've used several APC Masterswitchs with good success. They come with a Web interface which you can powercycle from. They seem just as secure as your username/password.
