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 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 automate network management, compliance management, and to make changes faster across their multi-vendor network infrastructure. Using Restorepoint you can save hours of administration time per week by automating critical network processes, all without scripts or repetitive manual processes.

We remove the complexity from network management, ensuring you're able to put routine tasks on auto-pilot.  Learn more about how Restorepoint can automate Network Configuration Backup, Compliance Auditing, Change Detection, and Change Management for all of your network, security and storage devices.
