Device controls, Compliance policy and Automation.

Restorepoint is a Disaster Recovery and Secure Configuration Management appliance for network devices such as routers, switches, proxies, and firewalls. Restorepoint can automatically retrieve your network device configurations, detect changes and compliance violations, and report these automatically to network administrators. In this Powerhour session we will share with you how to add devices into Restorepoint, why having backups collected is useful in an autonomic IT environment, and how to leverage the SL1 platform in support of key workflows. Additionally, we will present the benefits of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC).

Within the ScienceLogic Network Change and Configuration Management (NCCM) platform you will be backup over 100 different types of network equipment including firewalls to a central repository. Once the backup is collected then you can track change over time for auditing purposes as well as day to day operational needs to manage effective change control. Integration to the monitoring and automation platform adds layers of value which we will discuss during our session.

When your organization is tasked with managing GRC then Restorepoint will apply your rules to assist in real time awareness of compliance. When configuration drift occurs then an alert will be sent to the SL1 platform for execution of automations in support of your defined workflow. For instance if you need to collect the difference of the last two configurations to compare an unplanned change while opening an incident into your IT Service Management (ITSM) product that can be completed so your operations team only need to receive the enhanced information set and begin resolutions steps. Often the best step is to revert the change and of course that’s supported from SL1 to allow for reduction in your Mean Time to Repair (MTTR).

At the end of the June PowerHour you will have learned how to add devices into Restorepoint, why having backups collected is valuable and how to leverage the SL1 platform in support of key workflows. Additionally, we will present the benefits of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC). While blending into the overall SL1 platforms workflow operational needs
