In today’s network infrastructures, hundreds or thousands of disparate devices can be scattered across remote locations that may span several continents. And IT budgets aren't keeping pace with network infrastructure growth. To help offset this disparity and improve business responsiveness, Dell and BMC partnered to offer an easy-to-install, easy-to-use solution. You can use BMC® BladeLogic® Network Automation to automate mass configuration updates, enforce policies and perform nondisruptive rollbacks, as well as the following:

Simplify access control list (ACL) management

  • Reduce security vulnerabilities during updates
  • Perform real-time, policy-based compliance auditing
  • Identify and quarantine suspect endpoints quickly
  • Correlate reported service problems with prior configuration changes

     

     

     

    With BMC BladeLogic Network Automation, you can:

     

  • Dramatically reduce operations costs through automation and one-click rollback.
  • Eliminate the number one cause of network outages — erroneous configuration changes.
  • Ensure continuous compliance with internal best practices and regulatory standards such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC), PCI Security Standards, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Audit.
  • Extend enterprise-wide change management initiatives to the network level.

     

     

    BMC BladeLogic Network Automation also includes support for Dell™ PowerConnect™ switches to help simplify network management.
