Four automated processes lay the foundation for network assurance

IP Fabric Network Assurance delivers actionable insight into the state of your network and provides evidence that your business is receiving the service levels it requires.
At lightning speed, you will have four key questions answered:
● What is on my network?● How can I model my network?● Is my network behaving as intended?● How do I see and analyse what's on my network?
This platform automates discovery and documentation that knocks out 90% of the manual work needed to even begin an automation project. IP Fabric then continuously validates that your automation workflows align with your intent.


Inventory devices, licenses, behaviours and more

Experience multitenant enabled, role-based network automation

BackBox automates thousands of tasks including backups, OS upgrades, vulnerability patching, config drift and remediation and maintains the device details inventory.
Backups are verified at creation and before restoring, with specific checks for file corruption and integrity, zero-byte backup and file size deviation.
Organisations save time, money and resources with automated OS updates, with pre-built automations easily customised to fit your processes. Vulnerability patching is made easy by BackBox's automated communication with all devices. It understands vulnerability levels and remediates exposures.
Network devices can also be queried to make sure they are running according to best practices and company policy. Every change is reported while the built-in Compare Tool allows network admins to easily and clearly compare configuration baseline parameters, compliance expectations or any other files.

Ensure compliance easily, with policy-driven automation

Compliance at scale with network assurance and automation

The larger the network, the greater the challenge to ensure compliancy. For organisations with multiple large networks to manage, the resulting complexity requires a powerful solution.
BackBox allows you to automatically check your network devices against critical parameters, generate, send and archive reports detailing level of compliance. It can also remediate discrepancies or open a ticket in your ITSM to await administrator confirmation. This means you are able to maintain compliance with both external regulations such as HIPAA, PCI and CIS and also internally defined policy such as password complexity, across networks of all sizes.
Every change is reported while the built-in Compare Tool allows network admins to easily and clearly compare configuration baseline parameters, compliance expectations or any other files.
