Network Configuration Management (NCM) helps manage network device configurations within an organization by proactively detecting inaccurate configurations or unauthorized changes. NCM facilitates quick restoration of working versions of device configurations, and minimizes disruptions.Start 30-day free trial
Network Configuration Management ensures that network devices in an organization function optimally and securely. Our NCM tool helps address network configuration and change management, while ensuring compliance.
Reduce human errors, easily coordinate between teams, develop disaster recovery plans, and thwart security threats.
Review, recover, or revert network configurations with a single click.
Automate and schedule backups; track unauthorized changes, and receive alerts—all from a unified dashboard.
Site24x7's NCM supports devices from over 75 vendors and more than 300 device templates to fetch and manage your network configurations. If required, you can also create custom device templates to monitor any device in your network.
An incorrect configuration change can halt network operations. Automate configuration backup whenever you detect a change to running and startup configurations.
Schedule configuration backups at predefined intervals based on your organization's needs. Site24x7's NCM takes a backup of the latest changes at established intervals to help you save time and effort while also maintaining security and device compliance.
Compare the configuration details of your devices with their baseline, startup, running, or previous configurations to view and validate the changes. You can also compare the version numbers in real time to analyze the changes, ensuring complete change management.
Not all users are authorized to perform configuration changes. To understand if the change is authorized, you can view current configurations and their type to check the validity of the transaction. You can revert changes if they are not performed by authorized users.
Be it baseline, running, or start-up configuration, you can recover any last approved version of the device configuration after network mishaps or unforeseen events—with a single click.
When a device is added to NCM for monitoring, Site24x7 maintains a cloud backup of the startup and running device configurations. It also notifies administrators whenever a device configuration update occurs. If the changes are unapproved or unauthorized, network administrators can swiftly restore a working device configuration before the changes cause harm to the network.
To stay on top of network issues, you need a secure, robust, standalone configuration manager that can roll back effectively and restore the network before any threats cause meaningful damage.
Site24x7's NCM proactively takes backups of configuration versions if there's a change detected. If an outage hits, you can restore a previous stable configuration version and get your network up and running quickly. Site24x7 also offers several benefits that make network device configuration management effortless.
Scheduling a periodic capture of configuration backups enables network admins to analyze real-time changes in network configuration. If a backup fails or conflicts occur, Site24x7's NCM generates insightful alerts through email, SMS, voice calls, and other third-party integrations like PagerDuty and Slack.
Obtain better visibility from reports that analyze the NCM inventory, startup or running device configuration conflicts, and user activities related to all the configuration events in your network environment. Schedule NCM reports to be sent as PDFs to your team's email ID.
Build a custom dashboard to track configuration changes made to major devices. Monitor them continuously by adding widgets that display the device status, backup status, and conflicts in a single view.
View device details, including hardware that's being backed up and monitored for configuration changes. This can help you troubleshoot device backup failures.
Site24x7 offers network monitoring for device and interface monitoring; network traffic monitoring to analyze flows based on different technologies like NetFlow, J-Flow, and sFlow; and NCM to manage network configuration backups—all from a single, SaaS-based monitoring console. Accomplish hassle-free control over your network from a single console without switching between software packages.
The key to effectively managing your network is to have the ability to pinpoint trouble as it comes up.
