Could it be time to automate configuration changes, management, and backups? In the ongoing effort to preemptively monitor your device operations and prevent downtime, the ability to harmonize device configurations could be the key to saving time and mitigating risk across your infrastructure.
But, where is the best place to begin? Rafi Zvi, Co-Founder of BackBox, will provide some tips for doing so during the webinar ‘How Organizations Can Gain Infrastructure Efficiency by Automating Their Network Operations’ on June 29.
Fuel caught up with Rafi Zvi to gain perspective on what to expect during this 45-minute educational webinar.
Fuel: What factors drive the need to automate and verify the disaster recovery procedure of the network infrastructure today?
Rafi Zvi: Network infrastructures are comprised of a variety of complex devices, vendors and (technology) versions. When a device fails, in most cases, it will be hard to find a verified backup to be able to restore it quickly. Network outages, however brief, can be massively disruptive to the business, not to mention costly. Even if a backup solution is present in your infrastructure, it is likely a homegrown compilation of scripts maintained by a single person or group within the enterprise with limited scope and maintenance schedules. What BackBox provides is a complete solution for automating and verifying your backups, with support for over 150 security vendors.
Fuel:Describe the value of being able to proactively manage the network, such as being able to push configuration changes to multiple devices from a central location.
Rafi Zvi: There are numerous tasks that must be performed daily to maintain large network infrastructure. These tasks can be tedious, time-consuming and prone to human error. BackBox provides a full automation suite of tools to meet the needs of today’s enterprise security environment:
- Automate backup and restore process
- Dynamically update asset management within your infrastructure.
- Creating tasks to push configurations or update files to multiple devices at the same time
- Application level health checks for your devices, that will prevent downtime
- Harmonization tools that will let you keep maintain consistency and uniformity on your device’s configuration
Automating simple tasks such as pushing new credentials, adding new access-list lines, setting new server details on multiple devices can save time and resources.
Fuel: What is the one key takeaway that attendees can expect from this webinar?
Rafi Zvi: Attendees will learn easy ways to automate their multi-vendor security infrastructure. This can help save time and effort, and minimize error.
