Faulty configuration changes can catalyze potential network glitches, and non-compliance with the latest industry standards can make multiclient networks vulnerable to security threats. Yet, managing client configurations for change and compliance is considered a trivial subject to many MSPs. But it is crucial. Comprehensive management can help MSPs:
This shows that monitoring and management of the network configuration is vital. To accomplish the intended job flawlessly, ManageEngine OpManager MSP, a reliable solution for multiclient networks, has introduced the Network configuration manager (NCM) add-on to OpManager MSP. With this robust tool, MSPs can now combat multiclient network configuration challenges easily; it delivers monitoring, management, automation, and security features cost efficiently.
This powerful combo of OpManager MSP and the Network configuration manager add-on is feature-packed and brings a lot to a MSP's table. Here's how this dynamic duo is beneficial:
With OpManager MSP's NCM add-on, service providers gain an in-depth view of network configuration changes in their client's networks in real time. This enables them to understand what is happening in the network effortlessly, without needing to access multiple tabs. This will be helpful to filter erroneous configuration changes made recently; these can be instantly reverted. The NCM add-on also enables IT admins to increase security by providing access only to required resources using role-based access control. The effective management of configuration changes helps reduce frequent downtimes caused by faulty configuration changes.
Taking backups for all the client networks devices whenever configuration changes are made can be quite ponderous and time-consuming. However, with OpManager MSP and the NCM add-on, MSPs can instantly back up the configurations of multiple network devices at once. They can also schedule configuration backups of client network devices between the preferred length of time. Further, manual efforts for initiating backups can be eliminated by turning the change detection mode on; this triggers backups automatically whenever a change is made to devices.
Eliminating manual tasks provides a few gifts for business organizations, including completing configuration changes efficiently and without any man-made errors, saving a lot of time, labor, and expensive. The combination of OpManager MSP and NCM delivers an credible automation feature called configlets, which are configuration script templates. These can help MSPs automate configuration operations, and troubleshoot faster. Additionally, credentials can be updated automatically in order to tighten security.
A study conducted by Ponemon Institute states that 46 organizations spent 2.65 times more, on average, to address issues with non-compliance than they would have spent to comly with the compliance policies. For this reason, organizations should consider compliance management important. OpManager MSP's NCM add-on lets MSPs adhere to industry standards, such as HIPAA, SOX, CISCO IOS, PCI; it easily enables MSPs to create custom compliance policies as well. MSPs can remediate compliance violations instantly with the remediation configlets. Also, compliance reports can be generated to analyze network violations better.
Secure your network from firmware vulnerabilities and prevent business losses and customer attrition as a consequence of intrusions and data hacks with the help of OpManager MSP and the NCM add-on. Scan and identify firmware vulnerabilities in client network devices and fix them instantly. This combo also delivers a detailed view of the vulnerabilities included with the CVE ID, and that provides a suitable patch to overcome vulnerabilities.
No extra steps are required to enable the NCM add-on. MSPs can find the inventory under Network -> Config Management and start managing the multiclient network configuration instantly.
