Automate backup for Palo Alto devices without scripts

Palo Alto® configuration backup is the process of making a copy of the complete configuration and settings for Palo Alto devices. Configuration backups allow network administrators to recover quickly from a device failure, roll back from misconfiguration or simply revert a device to a previous state.

Because configurations change in time, configuration backups for Palo Alto should be created regularly and stored in a secure location.

Restorepoint includes support for the following Palo Alto device types:

  • Firewall Platforms
  • Panorama Management

Use Case 1:

Challenge: Backup/Restore network devices

In the event of failure due to network connectivity issues or other outages, Restorepoint can be configured to retry the backup and generate alerts; the number of retries, interval and alerts can be set as required for the Palo Alto environment. For convenience, backups can be configured so that files created by Restorepoint are automatically prefixed with the Device ID and/or the Device Name, or any other custom prefix as required.

Use Case 2:

Challenge: Detect Changes and Automate Compliance Analysis for Audit and Security purposes

The compliance feature of Restorepoint allows configuration and status checks to be run for each registered Palo Alto Networks device to assess conformance to a target baseline. These checks can inspect backed up configuration files, and if required can also include commands and scripting (LUA), utilizing additional Device Controls during backup runtime (or scheduled), to interrogate each device and report findings by analyzing the output with Regex.

Restorepoint enables organisations to remove network management complexity by putting routine tasks such as network configuration backup, compliance and change management tasks on autopilot across their multi-vendor network infrastructure.

Using Restorepoint's simple graphical user interface network administrators can quickly schedule network device backups without scripts, analyse devices to ensure security, compliance and automate bulk changes that would otherwise take hours or days to implement manually.
