JOINT SOLUTION DESCRIPTION

Restorepoint is a multi-vendor network automation platform that delivers essential disaster recovery, compliance and change management capabilities for enterprise networks.
‍

Network administrators can save valuable time by automating crucial management tasks across Fortinet devices including FortiGate, FortiMail, FortiWeb FortiSwitch, FortiAnalyzer, FortiADC, and FortiManager.
‍

Fortinet customers can reduce downtime exposure and demonstrate their compliance standards such as PCI, ISO27001, HIPAA and NIST when their network configurations are backed up, analysed, and stored securely and regularly. Using Restorepoint, Fortinet administrators can gather valuable insight about the running of their multi-vendor network infrastructure and be alerted via email, SNMP or Syslog when compliance violations or potentially unsanctioned configuration changes are detected. Restorepoint also simplifies Fortinet device management operations and can automate repetitive changes or upgrade Fortinet firmware without the need to connect to each device. Asset Management is a built-in function that saves administrators time by tracking device serial numbers, license, location information and more automatically instead of maintaining spreadsheets.

JOINT SOLUTION BENEFITS

  • Automatic disaster recovery, compliance auditing, and change management for devices
  • Centralized configuration backup and 1-click recovery following device failure or misconfiguration.
  • Automatic change detection and configuration analysis for compliance
  • Secure configuration data such as device passwords, IP addresses, policies etc using role-based access control and encryption.
  • Automated configuration changes and software upgrades across Fortinet devices
  • Real-time tracking of asset management data, including serial numbers, model numbers, firmware and location.

CHALLENGE 1: BACKUP/RESTORE NETWORK DEVICES


Unlike server infrastructure, where many solutions exist for disaster recovery, managing backup of network devices is a complex and often time-consuming manual task. Restorepoint provides out-of- the-box support for Fortinet devices, allowing Fortinet engineers to centrally schedule backup and restore configurations from their devices using a single point-and-click solution instead of manual effort including maintaining complex scripts. Backups are verified to be complete and encrypted within the security-hardened appliance, protecting the sensitive network configuration information which might be otherwise exposed on an unprotected server.


CHALLENGE 2: DETECT CHANGES AND AUTOMATE COMPLIANCE ANALYSIS FOR AUDIT AND SECURITY PURPOSES


Restorepoint’s built-in compliance engine allows configuration analysis and status checks to be quickly automated for Fortinet devices. Compliance checks can analyze configuration files firmware at the point of backup, and also perform scheduled health or status checks to ensure smooth network operations. Policies can be quickly applied to multiple devices to ensure that devices are configured correctly and meet internal or external compliance policies. The Compliance score for devices is displayed on the Restorepoint Dashboard, and alerts can be sent to administrators and or SIEM systems when violations are detected.
