NetBrain Integrated Edition
The platform for adaptive network automation
NetBrain® Integrated Edition is an industry-leading network automation platform, providing instant visualisation and analysis of critical network data. NetBrain integrated with existing IT workflows to provide valuable insights, and minimise the time spent in the command-line interface, or analysing data across disparate tools.
Use Case Scenarios
Map Critical Traffic Flow
For troubleshooting, engineers need to know how traffic flows from point A to point B. NetBrain employs Dynamic Maps as the single-pane-of-glass for data visualisation. With just a source and destination IP address or hostname, engineers can quickly create a map to see how traffic flows from point A to point B in seconds.
Automate Network Diagrams
Compare a current network diagram to one before an incident occurred, to get specific data on that problem.
NetBrain makes information available across teams, rather than localised within a single Engineer’s head.
Document Tribal Knowledge
In many organisations, “know-how” is stored inside the minds of “tribal leaders” – Engineers who were involved in creating the network for example. NetBrain allows you to digitalise expert knowledge, automate common workflows, and share and enforce best practices across network, security, and application teams.
Automate Compliance Checks
NetBrain can help create procedures that perform a variety of automated regulatory compliance checks.
Triggering an automatic validation of network changes against “golden” design and compliance requirements.
Key Product Features
NetBrain Integrated Edition at a glance.
The intelligent auto-discovery engine inside gathers information using the command line interface, and then provides real-time, visualisation of your network.
Dynamic Network Mapping
Networks constantly change but most of the time your documentation remains stale. NetBrain’s dynamic maps will always stay up-to-date as your network changes.
Automated runbooks will perform a first level diagnosis, collect/analyse data then place it on a dynamic map for you to see in order to resolve the issue.
Rich API Framework
NetBrain isn’t replacing your existing toolsets. We bring 3rd-party data into the dynamic maps to assist in visualising and diagnosing events as they happen.
SDN & Traditional Networks
Get centralised, end-to-end views of your overall infrastructure by mapping physical and logical connections within SDN and legacy/traditional networks.
