The Gluware Config Drift and Audit solution enables organizations to achieve control over their network devices and the “wild west” approach to change management taking place in most networks today.
It provides operations with the ability to “snapshot” a known good configuration and then apply a comparison to determine if any changes have been implemented. If changes (drift) have been detected, line by line differences in the configuration are easily identified.
This becomes very powerful when an organization is able to monitor for configuration changes across all the hundreds or even thousands of multi-vendor devices in their network. If a change is approved, a new “snapshot” can be taken to promote the approved/validated configuration. If a change is not approved, it can be easily mitigated.
