Brocade routers are one of the leading routers worldwide with a wide range of features and capabilities supporting the latest technology advancements. These type of routers provide various configurations that are critical for a network, so they need to be managed precisely. If these configurations are not managed properly, huge network disasters, device corruption, or device failure could result. ManageEngine Network Configuration Manager takes full control of Brocade router configuration and provides the optimal features to manage the devices error-free.
Network Configuration Manager, which can also be called as Brocade router configuration manager here, provides innovative capabilities and features that leverage the latest technological advancements in networking.
Highlights of Network Configuration Manager's Brocade router config management:
In the past, network administrators manually performed most of their tasks. While time-consuming and often tedious, they individually restored the configurations if a network outage occurred. Network Configuration Manager provides an advanced backup feature for Brocade router configuration management that enables multiple backups of Brocade router configuration, so the most stable version can be uploaded to devices when downtime or an outage occurs. This also gives network admins more time to troubleshoot and determine the root cause of the issue. Also, you can backup Brocade switch config with Network Configuration Manager.
Sometimes, a change made to a configuration can be chaotic for the network. Changes made to the configuration of Brocade router should be monitored, and this can be accomplished hassle-free using Network Configuration Manager's or Brocade router configuration manager's Change Management feature.
Technologies are advancing rapidly today, and with this, threats are also growing, causing concerns. To prevent disastrous events, organizations are required to follow policies to stay compliant with the latest industry security standards. Once your Brocade router configuraton is configured to Network Configuration Manager, you can easily confirm if the router follows industry-level compliance and if any changes are required. The solution provides an added advantage by enabling you to create your own policies for more layers of security. By default, for Brocade router configuration management, Network Configuration Manager provides policies such as Cisco IOS, PCI DSS, SOX, HIPAA, and more. If the Brocade router configurations are non-compliant, Network Configuration Manager sends violation notifications.
Network admins have tasks that require a lot of manual and often tedious work. Network Configuration Manager helps automate configuration management tasks via Configlets, which are command templates. For example, if a password change is required for 10,000 devices in a network, you can use Configlets to change the password for all devices at one time. CLI and REST Configlets are supported.
Sensitive data for your organization can be at risk when a firmware vulnerability occurs. To keep the firmware safe, at regular intervals, Network Configuration Manager's Firmware vulnerability management feature regularly updates firmware vulnerabilities by importing data from NIST. It automatically checks if the firmware for the Brocade router, or another device, is safe. If not, Network Configuration Manager or Brocade router configuration manager immediately lists them along with their CVE IDs so that fixes can be obtained for the vulnerabilities. The solution also categorizes firmware vulnerabilities into four types:
Audits and reports are key to tracking changes and important updates. Network Configuration Manager generates configuration reports that provide in-depth details about your Brocade router configuration. The five categories of reports in Network Configuration Manager are:
|Brocade||Brocade 648G FWS Switch|
|Brocade||Brocade 624S FCX Switch|
|Brocade||XMR Ironware V5.7 Switch|
|Brocade||7250 ICX Switch|
|Brocade||SilkWorm 3850 Fabric Switch|
