Eliminate Plug-and-Pray When Making Network Changes
Making changes to the network is risky – a single misconfiguration can result in performance issues, or even outages, especially when new technologies and other key business initiatives are rolled out.
NetBrain allows you to automate your critical network change management workflows to validate changes and minimize human error. Collect data before the change is made, execute the change, and gather data after to analyze the impact to your environment.
“We will never approve a network change unless NetBrain is used to verify the difference between routing tables before and after.”

Execute Network Changes Right from the Map
Automatically push pre-defined configuration templates across multiple devices or interfaces directly from the map. Benchmark configurations before and after and, if necessary, roll back the network changes with one click.
Proactively Validate Network Changes
More than half of network outages are due to some improperly executed change. Proactively guard against misconfiguration by triggering an automatic validation of network changes against “golden” design and compliance requirements.
Automatically Audit Network Changes
NetBrain automatically logs all user activity, so you can audit recent network changes and perform a comparative “before and after” analysis across config files, route tables, MAC/ARP tables, CLI output, and more.
Our Change Management module is a comprehensive solution for controlling network changes. Within a single workflow, network engineers can define a template, deploy the configuration updates, and then verify the impact of the changes.
