Meet SIFF

Manage Rapid Changes in DevOps, Network, and IT Operations

What Does SIFF Do?

COLLECT & MONITOR

All configuration and changes in one place.

Troubleshooting complex incidents is hard. Especially if the information you need is fragmented across various tools and silos. SIFF tackles this challenge by collecting all configuration changes and making the data easily accessible via intelligent search, troubleshooting tools, and reports.

SECURE CONFIGURATION & COMPLIANCE

Continuously audit all your configs.

Security audit and compliance shouldn’t be a once-a-year activity. How do you ensure the policy and guidelines are being implemented by the network, application and server teams? SIFF helps automate your configuration policies by continuously examining all configuration changes comply with your requirements.

PREVENT & REDUCE INCIDENTS

Review changes to prevent minor errors from becoming a major outage.

Software developers have code reviews to reduce errors. DevOps should review completed infrastructure Change Requests too. Peer reviews only happens when there are tools that make the process easy. SIFF automates collecting all relevant config changes for the Change Request and highlights the differences so that you can quickly review for correctness and completion.

INCIDENT RESPONSE & REMEDIATION

Narrow down and identify the root cause fast.

An alert signals there is a problem. Performance graphs indicate symptoms. Application logs throw you deep into the haystack, but are you searching in the right haystack? Instead, start by reviewing the recent and related config changes that may have caused this mess.

Where Does SIFF Help?

INFRASTRUCTURE OPERATIONS & DEVOPS

The front line that keeps everything running.

Software developers have code reviews to reduce errors. DevOps should review completed infrastructure Change Requests too. Peer reviews only happens when there are tools that make the process easy. SIFF automates collecting all relevant config changes for the Change Request and highlights the differences so that you can quickly review for correctness and completion.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT

The safety net because no one is perfect.

We all need safety nets and an extra pair of eyes. SIFF provides the safety net for your infrastructure changes. SIFF collects and version all configuration data historically for easy search, review and comparison. The changes are automatically associated with Change Requests so they can be easily reviewed to reduce errors and prevent incidents early.

SECURITY & GOVERNANCE

The data you need to answer your infrastructure questions.

We can Google all sorts of weird facts at our fingertips but often struggle to answer simple questions about an infrastructure. Which server does not have the firewall turned on? Are there any compromised files with this checksum? Show a list of Tomcat servers older than this version? It’s time to get the data that matters.

How Does SIFF Work?

AWS CLOUD-BASED SERVICE

SIFF SaaS Platform & Distributed Collectors

SIFF simplifies deployment, maintenance, and upgrades by offering a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that automatically scales as your company grows. Large complex environments are easily supported with distributed SIFF Collectors that discovers, collects, and monitors your systems and devices for configuration changes using standard protocols such as SSH and HTTPS. After initial configuration retrieval, only the changes are sent to SIFF for versioning and analysis. SIFF Agents are supported for specialized environments without remote access.

DEVICE & SERVICE CONFIG DISCOVERY

Automatically Analyze Devices & Systems to Monitor

SIFF automatically adapts to your continuously changing environment. Modern infrastructures are increasingly becoming more software-defined with multi-cloud, virtual-devices, containers, and microservices are more widely adopted. SIFF automatically discovers or manages these new elements as well as understands what configuration data to collect.

DISCOVERY COMMUNITY LIBRARY

Built-in Community-Powered Service & Device Discovery Library

We strive to make managing your configs as seamless as possible. A key part that makes this possible is our native integration with the Service Definitions (SD) community library. SIFF administrators can easily search, install and update SDs from the community and are encouraged to share their own SDs with the rest of the community.
