Network Configuration Manager is a configuration change and compliance management tool also called as Cisco switch config management softwre for Cisco that provides better visibility into the changes being made to your Cisco device configurations. Along with improved configuration management, you can manage Cisco configuration as well as automate repetitive network operations, ensure industry compliance, and generate configuration reports as needed.
Using Network Configuration Manager, you can handle Cisco switch configuration management such as back up Cisco configurations, automate configuration tasks, check compliance, enable change notifications, and much more. You no longer have to manually connect your devices using Telnet or PuTTY to modify configurations; with Network Configuration Manager, that is, Cisco server configuration management software, you can modify them directly.
Since Network Configuration Manager lets you manage routers as well, it can also be called as Cisco router config management software. You can modify running and startup configurations of your Cisco network devices, perform searches to find configuration files or strings, and perform the following operations:
To ensure network configuration modifications meet network requirements and to secure the network from breaches, these configurations need to be moderated using Cisco configuration tool.
Using the change management option, you can:
To ensure maximum security and avoid penalties, organizations must comply with various standards. Using Network Configuration Manager's Cisco device configuration management, you can perform manual compliance checks, or schedule them when required and receive detailed reports.
Network Configuration Manager or Cisco switch configuration tool comes with a set of default compliance policies like SOX, HIPAA, PCI DSS, and Cisco IOS. You can also create custom compliance policies to meet your internal compliance standards, and fix rule violations using configlets: executable configuration templates.
Some configuration tasks, such as enabling or disabling Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), have to be performed repetitively in a network. These tasks consume a lot of time when there are many devices on a network, and IT teams can benefit greatly from automating them.
Network Configuration Manager, also called as Cisco switch configuration tool or Cisco router configuration tool, can help you automate network operations with the help of configlets. Using configlets, you can:
Configuration audits and reports are an integral part of keeping your network secure. Manage Cisco configuration in Network Configuration Manager which has a set of default reports, but you can easily create custom reports as well. Utilize out-of-the-box reports on:
