What problems does it solve?
- Analysis by IT experts has revealed that the commonest cause for most Network outages is faulty configuration changes. In IT enterprises, network administrators manage a large number of network devices and quite often they need to carry out unplanned configuration changes. As configuration changes have to be made almost continuously, administrators are struggling to keep track of the changes done to the configurations. In the face of network outages, it becomes difficult to troubleshoot. Network Configuration Manager helps maintain versions of device configurations in a secure, centralized repository and manage them from a single interface.
- Network devices are the crucial components of the enterprise and unauthorized configuration changes could wreak havoc on the network. Even when genuine configuration changes are done, the security professionals are required to ensure that the changes do not create any impact on the network security. Network Configuration Manager helps the network security professionals to take total control of the configuration changes.
- With increasing security threats to mission-critical network resources and serious legal consequences of information mis-management, IT managers everywhere are required not just to follow standard practices, internal security policies, stringent Government regulations and industrial guidelines, but also demonstrate that the policies are enforced and network devices remain compliant to the policies defined. Network Configuration Manager precisely helps in achieving this with ease.
- Automation is the buzzword in IT operations nowadays. IT Managers are always on the look out for automating repetitive and time consuming tasks in order to reduce operations cost and improve productivity. Network Configuration Manager helps automate all configuration tasks and improve productivity.
