OpManager Plus provides configuration and compliance management (NCCCM) solution for switches, routers, firewalls and other network devices. It helps automate and take total control of the entire lifecycle of device configuration management. Some key features include
The network configuration module in OpManager Plus allows the admin to select individual devices to be scheduled for configuration backup and also, bulk schedule up-to 250 devices per schedule. The configuration backup can be scheduled hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and also for once. This gives the admin the flexibility of scheduling configuration backup after working hours when the task will not clog the bandwidth. Automated configuration backup enables change detection and triggers configuration backup. OpManager Plus detects the changes through the syslog messages received from the devices.
Real-time tracking comes in handy for administrators to keep track of the changes being made and to detect any unauthorized changes. By enabling this in OpManager Plus, administrators can
Users perform various operations on device configuration such as backing up the configuration, uploading configuration to the device, enabling real-time change detection etc., When something goes wrong due to a faulty configuration change or when a security breach occurs, it is important to track user actions to ensure accountability in the organization. To ensure this, it is essential to record the information on who invoked what operation, on what device, at what time and the result of the operation. This is done by the Audit feature in the network configuration module of OpManager Plus and this is termed as "Device Operation Audit".
The network configuration module in OpManager helps administrators to define and enforce standards. The standards could be anything - ensuring the presence or absence of certain strings, commands or values. OpManager Plus will scan the configuration for compliance to the rules/ policy defined and report violations. Reports on policy compliance and violations are generated.
