Unexpected configuration changes can signal a network attack. Not only should you set alerts to detect and correct changes, but you should also set automated backups for all your device configuration settings.
Manual configuration management takes time away from other duties and exposes you to potential user error. You should be able to automate critical tasks like configurations backups, updating firmware and changing SNMP strings
You need to enforce best practices for security and compliance with internal, industry or regulatory data security mandates. You should be able to standardize configurations, validate compliance and run audits.
Configuration Management is a powerful tool that lets you automate change management tasks and securely back up device configurations within WhatsUp Gold. If you own WhatsUp Gold Premium Edition, you can seamlessly add additional tools to your deployment anytime.
With this tool, you can centralize the management of your network device configurations:
Automate administration tasks like running configuration backups, adding/removing users, updating firmware or changing SNMP strings.
Free yourself from the manual task of creating routine backups. If a network configuration is changed to facilitate an exploit, you need to be able to quickly recover.
Set up alerts to receive traps from network devices in the event of a configuration change. Then you can set Action Policies to back up the new configuration.
Run a change analysis that produces a text-based comparison of old and new configurations and highlights the differences.
Define your own configuration policies in the module (e.g., 'use password encryption') and automatically validate the compliance of new device configurations.
Schedule periodic, automated audits of all running configurations to document compliance for external (e.g., SOX, PCI, HIPAA and FISMA) or internal standards.
Manage device configurations within your existing monitoring tool
Save time and eliminate errors by automating your device configuration tasks
Bring consistency to your configurations across your device roles
Simplify your compliance audits with archiving and automated reporting
