Features available on Network Configuration Manager

Reviewed 2 years ago

NCM is compliance with industry standards. It is PCI, SOX and HIPAA compliance ensures data is secure.

Pros

With the current Covid-19 situation, I have been able to make maximum use of the features available in order to monitor our network and ensure business continuity. The reports generated by Firewall features within OPManager Plus are really useful. ManageEngine Support have been very swift in customising reports specific to our needs.

Cons

With all software, you must spend time initially tweaking to ensure the software works correctly. I found it difficult at times to understand the requirements to get the software to work.

ManageEngine NCM - Your one-stop Networking configuration tool

Reviewed a year ago

When it comes to PCIDSS compliance, our organization was suffering with configuration backup and auditing. But after proper set of ManageEngine Network Configuration Manager, we were able to comply with all PCIDSS requirements with much ease.

Pros

The most loved feature is ManageEngine NCM is multi vendor supported. We do have Cisco, Juniper and HP switches and still we can use Manage Engine NCM to manage all the switches. And it is same with firewalls too. So it is just one solution for all the networking devices of the organization.

Cons

If the initial setup and configuration can be simplified it will be much better. setup and configuration was not easy as expected. However throughout the initial setup, vendor support was remarkable.

Excellent network management and auditing

Reviewed 4 months ago

So far our experience with this solution has been excellent. We needed a custom script wrote for some of our newer HP AOS-CX switches and support had that completed for us in less than 3 days. The customization and audit ability of this product is excellent and highly recommended.

Pros

The ease of setup, overall capabilities, and potential for in-depth customization in this product is unmatched in my experience. We have tried other manufacturers but they all lacked the ability to interact with such a wide array of products.

Cons

What I like least about this product is the amount of clicking required to change switch version baselines. This could be made more simple by providing shortcut selections on the devices screen.

Great Company and Software Support

Reviewed 2 years ago

We were looking for a simple and easy to use management software that reflected out customer test environment and gave us customization and ease of use management software we could use to manage our lab.

Pros

I love the ease of management and the simplicity of using the software. Everything is laid out in a very seamless and logical manner and nothing stands out as being out of place or located in some buried menu somewhere. Everything is easy to access and navigate through and the support, if needed, is always there and ready to help.

Cons

Cost can be a little off-putting at first but once you realize the value you're getting for your money it's more than worth the cost.

Vendor response

Hey Brian, thanks for your valuable feedback. This drives us to keep improving our products.

Good product for Cisco Users

Reviewed a year ago

I recently completed a cybersecurity audit which identified a lack of automated network config backup. This product was purchased to fill that whole, but it ended up being much more useful. I have used it to clean up all of my configs and it made increasing the security of my configs much easier.

Pros

This software is great for Cisco Users as it has a bunch of pre-defined templates available. I haven't found any Cisco equipment without a template so far. I really like the ability to create my own compliance rules and then easily create config-lets to automate correcting problems. For instance when I want to make sure that https access is disabled I create a rule that scans the config for "ip http server" and if it finds that it flags it as non-compliant. I can then create a quick script that will login to the switch, go to config mode, enter "no ip http server", write the config, and logout.

Cons

There are a few areas that could use some polish but nothing major. It doesn't always recognize new equipment during the discovery process. It will know that a device is there but not know what type of device. Once you manually assign the product type it works fine.

One Pane of Glass

Reviewed 2 years ago

My overall experience is a positive one and I think once the small bugs are addressed it will be a very popular product at a third of the cost of some industry leaders such as Solarwinds. Perfect for businesses that sit on the threshold between medium and large business.

Pros

NCM, along with its supporting packages gives you a very powerful toolset. NCM is amazing at providing all the necessary management features all in one pane of glass. The ability to track changes and backup are very useful as well as the ability to alert and monitor interfaces.

Cons

There isn't one specific feature that i didn't like however I would say that there appears to be a mixed experience when it comes to implementing. There appears to be a bug with running backup and change detection at the same time, some switches tend to repeat certain syslog messages and this in turn creates a backup loop.

Best NCM application for cooperate business

Reviewed 10 months ago

We have install NCM Plugin application with OpManager system. Saving my lot of time. we have setup all the alert systems with NCM if any changes we are receiving alert. NCM functioning level is very smooth.

Pros

Scan vulnerabilities is the main advantage. Device configuration backups, we can automate with restore . If any unauthorized access to devices generating instant alert for device admins. We can keep device configuration track for compliance activities. Saving lot of manual working time with ManageEngine NCM application.

Cons

Lot of patches are releasing, upgrade activity will have to regularly. I don't have any least point to mention about application.

That does not allow me to directly import the backups of the devices.

Simplified Network Configuration management

Reviewed 6 months ago

Manage Engine NCM simplifies the task of checking all of my network devices configurations for compliance with a set of defined configuration standards.

Pros

Manage Engine makes it easy to save and store a copy of all of your network device configurations and keep historical copies as changes are made.

Cons

The end of life hardware and software tracking could use more work. Some of the EOL data has to be manually entered rather than dynamically pulled from vendor web sites.
