In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, network security is of paramount importance. Recent high-profile network outages have underscored the need for organizations to not only automate improvements in network security but also recover quickly and minimize downtime when disaster strikes.
While data backups receive significant attention, operational tasks that keep networks secure, such as device backups, OS upgrades, and configuration grooming, often go undone. It’s incredible that even today, the majority of these changes are made by hand, which makes them error-prone. Even the simplest misstep can have a ripple effect that brings down a network and/or disrupts a supposedly fault-tolerant business service. No one is immune – not even tech giants like Microsoft and Google.
