As the technology grows, the amount of internet penetration in the Dominican republic has made it vulnerable to cyber attacks. In order to overcome this situation, the Dominican Republic has formulated Cyber Security norms and regulations to ensure uninterrupted functioning of businesses. We shall see how ManageEngine's OpManager satisfies the Cyber Security Regulations according to article no.26 as documented in the Regulation of Cybersecurity and Information. Further, we will see how OpManager's add-on Network Configuration Manager fulfills the norms in article no.28.
The article no.26 in the "Cyber Security and Information Regulation in the Dominican Republic" briefs about the general standards a network monitoring solution must possess in order to achieve a commendable network performance. Let us see how OpManager fits this standard!
"Real-time proactive monitoring of security and performance events throughout the infrastructure"
OpManager helps you gain visibility into your network infrastructure by monitoring device performance and providing real-time graphs. It also provides graphical statistics on device CPU and Memory Utilization and the latest information on any performance metric of a device and ensures security all over your infrastructure.
"Consumption reports that illustrate how resources are being used. Alerts via email or SNMP when suspicious events occur."
OpManager provides 100 + out-of-the box reports to achieve a well-planned and optimized IT infrastructure. Other than reports, OpManager also provides a well constructed fault management where a user can receive alerts over an SMS and Email whenever a fault is detected.
"Management of the Change Cycle associated with Configuration Management integrated with the CMDB through automated flows and reports"
OpManager can be integrated with ServiceDesk Plus (SDP) to manage configurations through automated flows and reports. Users can proactively identify which business service or unit gets affected the most for an incident through "Asset Relationship" in Service Desk Plus CMDB.
The article no.28 in the "Cyber Security and Information Regulation in the Dominican Republic" briefs about the general standards a network management solution must possess in order to manage the entire life cycle of configurations.
Let us see how OpManager's add-on Network Configuration Manager fits this standard!
"Define standard practices and policies and automatically control that the configurations of the devices comply with compliance standards."
Network Configuration Manager add-on helps to achieve auditable network compliance across industry-specific compliance policies. It provides default policies to comply with standard industry guidelines such as HIPAA, SOX, PCI and Cisco IOS policy and also allows users to create custom compliance policies.
"Perform a "backup" of the configurations of the devices, maintain a history, compare versions and "upload" the changes, all from a centralized web GUI."
Network Configuration Manager add-on backs up configurations of a large number of network devices in a very short time. It versions and stores configurations after each manual, scheduled, and automated backup. It also allows you to compare configuration versions using Diff-View.
"Monitor changes in configurations, get instant notifications and prevent unauthorized changes."
Network Configuration Manager add-on notifies users about configuration changes with the help of real-time change detection. You can trigger notifications in the form of Email, SNMP traps, Syslog messages, Trouble tickets etc and thus any unwanted change can be brought to notice and reverted immediately.
"Get a complete record about who, what and when the configuration changes happened. Record the actions, store them and reproduce them."
Network Configuration Manager add-on maintains a record of all the configuration changes made in network devices. Users can receive immediate notifications on who made the change along with the time and date at which the change is made. Users can generate detailed configuration change reports for a better understanding.
My network guy likes the ability to map and view everything down to the port without a lot of effort. With OpManager, I don’t need to spend money on training and spend time writing policies and scripts. I don’t need a whole team to monitor the network. The TCO is much lower.

There is a greater ROI with OpManager than with the other more costly monitoring systems like Tivoli, OpenView or SCCM’s Operations Manager. Not mention the ease of installation and configuration as compared to OpenView or Tivoli.

ManageEngine has been a great company to work with. Problem resolution has been very quick and professional, and the steady flow of new features has made the software a great investment for us.
