SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager Features
# Easily demonstrate security compliance by performing a vulnerability scan on Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) and Internetwork Operating System (IOS) devices using Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) published by the National Vulnerability Database ( NVD) is the main feature of the latest version.
# SolarWinds NCM also provides automated remediation options and reports for compliance with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).
Nikki Jennings, Group Vice President, Products and Markets, SolarWinds, said, “Security tools focused on real network devices are scarce and often IT professionals find themselves updating and patching the software manually. device software, but SolarWinds NCM automatically identifies vulnerabilities and helps troubleshoot issues, giving IT professionals peace of mind.
# By automatically receiving updated security alerts from NVD, SolarWinds NCM helps identify risks to network reliability and security by detecting potential vulnerabilities in Cisco ASA and IOS devices. A match between a vulnerability and a device will trigger an alert from SolarWinds NCM, which can be followed by an interactive report that documents remediation steps.
# If vulnerabilities are detected, SolarWinds NCM will provide an alert, compile a violation report by control and device, and provide automatic remediation actions. By creating reusable remediation scripts that are configured to run automatically whenever specific violations are detected, SolarWinds NCM provides reassurance after vulnerabilities are remedied.
# SolarWinds NCM automatically analyzes router and switch configurations to verify their compliance with NIST FISMA and DISA STIG standards and includes report templates on these compliance standards.
