What is Network Configuration Manager?

ManageEngine Network Configuration Manager is a multi-vendor network configuration and change management (NCCM) solution that helps manage switches, routers, firewalls, and other network devices. It covers every aspect needed to maintain a healthy network without misconfigurations and errors.

With Network Configuration Manager, you can back up configurations from multiple devices, make and track changes, stay compliant with industry and internal standards, automate mundane configuration tasks, and gain deep visibility into your network with holistic reports. Network Configuration Manager enhances your network’s performance and keeps it well-guarded from network disasters.

Configuration Backup

Back up your configuration files and instantly recover from network mishaps.

Compliance Audit

Stay compliant with PCI, HIPAA, Cisco IOS, SOX, and custom policies.

Configuration change management

Improve visibility with live updates on changes made to device configurations.

Configuration Automation

Automate repetitive network operations, and apply configurations to multiple devices at once.

Configuration reports

Generate holistic reports and maintain detailed documentation on every configuration task.


How Network Configuration Manager adds value to NetFlow Analyzer

Network Configuration Manager improves network performance and eliminates underlying configuration issues based on the insights received from NetFlow Analyzer. Using Network Configuration Manager as an add-on to NetFlow Analyzer, you can:

Export flows

With Network Configuration Manager, you can export flows to any number of interfaces in network devices. Once the flow data is exported, you can view traffic data in NetFlow Analyzer from the Dashboard and Inventory tabs.

Push ACL commands

Use NetFlow Analyzer to identify network devices consuming a lot of bandwidth, and push access control list (ACL) commands to multiple devices using Network Configuration Manager's configlets to control the priority in which data is transferred.

Configure quality of service (QoS) policies

Identify congestion in network devices with NetFlow Analyzer, and use Network Configuration Manager to update QoS policies directly in those devices instead of configuring them manually.

Audit compliance 

With Network Configuration Manager, you can make sure your network is compliant with internal, industry, and government standards by applying compliance policies in network devices and checking them for violations.

Back up configurations 

With Network Configuration Manager, you can back up your device configurations periodically, and access the backups to restore your device in seconds in case of sudden outages or network disasters.

Manage configuration changes 

With Network Configuration Manager, track what and when changes were made to configurations, and get notified immediately via email. You can also audit who made the change, and discover errors in the configurations by comparing the changes with previous configurations using Diff-View.
