Why Configuration Assessment And Change Auditing Is Key to Operational Stability

Network administrators and IT managers know that the ramifications of one small change to a company's critical servers or network devices-such as routers, switches, and firewalls-depend on whether the change is desired or not.

Without a way to know when change occurs and whether it's desired, not desired, accidental, benign, malicious, intentional, or originating from inside or outside, IT teams have few options for preventing negative consequences and minimizing damage.

Configuration audit and control solutions give organizations greater control over service-affecting changes and provide the foundation of a layered security strategy.
