Network Configuration Management - Mumbai Seminar

  1. 1. A comprehensive configuration, change, and compliance management tool. Network Configuration Manager
  2. 2. Fact #1 Configuration management tool is an essential to organizations of any size. Myth #1 Configuration management tool is a luxury
  3. 3. • No visibility into the status of device configurations. • Repetitive configuration changes to meet the business needs. • Productivity loss while reverting a faulty device. • Configuration errors due to manual execution. Drawbacks of not having a NCM tool.
  4. 4. What can NCM do to your business? • Increased efficiency, stability, and control of your network. • Enhanced system reliability through preventive detection of faulty changes. • Better quality of service owing to faster troubleshooting. • Faster restoration of service using pre-configured remedies.
  5. 5. 42% of ransomware victims were able to restore their network. Thanks to their network admins for having updated backups. (source) Fact #2 Backups are an everyday activity. Myth #2 Backups are required only when there is an outage
  6. 6. • Save time and effort with scheduled & automated backup. • Protect critical devices with reliable backups of device configurations. Label the best working version of the configuration as 'Baseline'. • Quickly recover from failed configuration changes by restoring the baseline configuration. How do backups help your network?
  7. 7. • Long hours spent in manually fetching the backup of each device. • Unencrypted local storage of config files opening the network to vulnerabilities. • Consumption of human resource to perform backups for several devices. • Risk of missing a backup operation of a critical device. What are the challenges in procuring config backups?
  8. 8. 36% of network outages are caused by configuration errors. (source) Fact #3 Big disasters come disguised as small stray changes. Myth #3 Config. changes are no big deal
  9. 9. How do you capture, analyze & revert a change? • Detect & track changes in real-time. • Be notified of the config changes with change notifications. • Spot the erroneous change with the side-by-side diff view of config files. • Know who makes what change using role-based access control. • Restrict access to critical device configuration by setting the scope for each user. • Nuke network issues at the beginning by reverting faulty changes in critical devices.
  10. 10. Employee negligence is the root cause of 68% of security breaches. (source) Fact #4 Compliance violations create loop holes and increase vulnerabilities. Myth #4 Compliance violations pose no threat
  11. 11. How would you be compliant? • Out-of-the-box support for SOX, HIPAA, PCI, & Cisco IOS policies. • Custom policies to suit your business • Go beyond compliance and set rules for monitoring as well!

In a config file, Interface starts with 'interface' In a config file, Interface ends with '!' To exclude the interfaces that are shut down To check if the speed is set
  13. 13. Working overtime increases the risk of illness by 61%. Fact #5 Automate configuration commands and remediation actions using configlets. Myth #5 Troubleshooting is always complex, manual & time consuming
  14. 14. How to troubleshoot & self-remediate config issues. • Executable configuration templates that can be applied to network devices remotely. • Using configlets, you can: • Fix faulty devices • Execute configuration changes • Execute network operations • Automate remediation • Upgrade device firmwares
  15. 15. Automate corrective actions with configlets using workflows. Alarm about traffic spike in a particular interface Execute configlet to restrict interface speed.
  16. 16. Upgrade device firmwares remotely. Having outdated firmwares will lead to: • Increased vulnerabilities • Not being able to utilize new features • Software crash • Slowness in obsolete devices leading to loss of productivity How does NCM help you with this? • Point at the exact location of the latest firmware • Upgrade device firmwares from within the NCM console • Bulk upgrade on a single click
  17. 17. Auditing is post-mortem. Start using reports for real-time monitoring. Fact #7 Reports provide a comprehensive status of the network for day- to-day monitoring. Myth #6 Reports are only for audit
  18. 18. • Understand your network in a glance with graphical representation of the status of your network. • Find the root cause of a problem by drilling down the reports. • Be ready for an audit anytime with updated reports right in your inbox. Learn about the change & compliance status in real-time
  19. 19. • Easy-to-deploy and use • Intuitive UI • Add-on to NetFlow Analyzer and OpManager • Dynamic device groups How does ManageEngine Network Configuration Manager stand out?
  20. 20. What's the ROI of Network Configuration Manager to your business? • IT staff productivity increase. Automate redundant IT operations & free up valuable resources for business-related initiatives. • User productivity increase. Reduce user downtime caused by unannounced system outages owing to faulty config changes. • IT cost reduction. Reduce IT costs with increased infrastructure efficiency and better software management.
  21. 21. Look who trust us!
  22. 22. How much does it cost to keep your network configurations intact? It is based on the number of devices in your network. NCM starts @ $595 to manage 10 network devices.
  23. 23. OpManager Plus: Integrated NMS
  24. 24. Thank you
