Micro Focus Network Automation (NA) provides an enterprise class solution that tracks and regulates configuration and software changes across routers, switches, firewalls, load balancers, and wireless access points. NA provides visibility into network changes, enabling an IT staff to identify and correct trends that could lead to problems, while mitigating compliance issues, security hazards, and disaster recovery risks. NA also captures full audit trail information about each device change.
Network engineers can use NA to pinpoint the following:
- Which device configuration changed
- What exactly was changed in the configuration
- Who made the change
- Why the change was made
In addition, NA can enforce security and regulatory policies at the network level by making sure that configurations comply with pre-defined standards.
