Enable your teams to manage rapid change with IT configuration change management.
Managing change is the key to driving business agility. The configuration throughout your environment, across all devices and systems, are the code or DNA to your organization. Most organizations today are completely blind to all the changes that occur, whether planned/authorized, unplanned/ad-hoc, or worse a security Indicators of Compromise (IOC). SIFF provides the ability to monitor changes across all your devices and systems to help:
Troubleshooting & Repair
Configuration Search & Reporting
Centralized Configuration Repository & Versioning
Configuration Audit, Reporting & Historical Logging
Asset Inventory & License Audit Reporting
Configuration Policy & Compliance Monitoring
Change Management Review & Analysis
The Change Management process is an essential best practice that helps minimize the number of errors that are introduced into the environment. Any work should be planned and approved with a Change Request before it is executed. The processes that are implemented in most organizations, however, frequently neglect the critical step of reviewing the work that was done. More precisely, the configuration changes that occurred as part of that work. This review allows any errors, omissions, side-effects / impact to be discovered early before a major outage occurs. Post-implementation reviews are often skipped because of the tedious work to collect all the configurations that were changed and due to how time-consuming it can be to identify all the differences within each of them. SIFF makes this easy by utilizing a number of strategies to automatically associate configuration changes to their respective Change Requests.
Authorized & Unauthorized Change Visibility
Without visibility to change activity throughout the environment, it is challenging to distinguish between approved configuration changes and ad-hoc changes. This lack of configuration monitoring makes it easy for intruders to hide, and difficult for teams to detect any changes that the intruder may have implemented. SIFF, together with the enhancements to the change management process, can help provide the necessary visibility and control to config changes that occur in your environment.
