DeviceAuthority Tracks Alterations
AlterPoint's DeviceAuthority neatly tracks network device configuration changes and made it easy for me to see who was making changes to Labs routers, firewalls and switches.AlterPoints DeviceAuthority neatly tracks network device configuration changes and made it easy for me to see who was making changes to Labs routers, firewalls and switches. Competitors such as Tripwires comparably priced Tripwire for Network Devices can also do this. In addition, Tripwire for Network Devices is OPSEC-compliant, meaning that it works well with Check Point Software Technologies firewall and intrusion detection systemsand OPSEC certification is something that Device- Authority does not have.
Even so, tests at eWeek Labs showed that DeviceAuthority worked well in managing the wide variety of Cisco gear that I use to run the Labs test network in San Francisco. I also controlled the configuration of our Extreme Networks switches from the same console as the Cisco gear. DeviceAuthority also supports equipment from Foundry and a host of other infrastructure equipment providers.
