Trigger backups and reduce network device down time
For every device you monitor using OpManager, you can trigger backups using NCM add-on and store them. During a network outage, you can push these back-ups to network devices and reduce the network down-time efficiently.
Monitor network devices for firmware vulnerabilities
Unfixed bugs and outdated OS version can be a hindrance to a smooth network performance. With NCM add-on, you can scan all the devices for firmware vulnerabilities, and upgrade to the latest version or apply recommended patches.
Change device passwords and execute configuration commands
NCM add-on consists of device-scripts called "Configlets" which can be useful in changing device passwords, upgrading firmware, etc. If bulk changes are to be made, you can simply use configlets and push the changes across any number of devices.
Audit your network devices for compliance with global/internal norms
NCM add-on helps your network devices comply with PCI DSS, HIPAA, Cisco IOS, and SOX compliance mandates, and allows you create custom policies to be in-line with internal standards, making your network more secure and less vulnerable.
