Achieving Closed Loop Firewall Automation with Batfish Enterprise & Itential
Mike Elrom, Senior Solutions Architect at Itential & Samir Parikh, Head of Product at Intentionet
About this talk
In today’s dynamic IT environment, network and security teams often find themselves caught between the need to make network and security changes quickly while allowing enough time for due diligence to ensure those changes are secure. IT teams are deploying applications at a rapid pace to support their business, so network and security teams need a modern way to rapidly deploy changes without creating unintentional security risks to the organization.
Batfish Enterprise allows network engineers to setup policy rule validation so configuration changes into firewalls (and other network devices) aren’t a guessing game. But now that you finally feel better about making changes, there is more to consider ¬– the change process, the actual change itself, the policy validation, and pre/post checks. That’s where Itential comes in. The Itential Automation Platform is an end-to-end network automation platform purpose-built for this very use case.
Join Mike Elrom, Senior Solutions Architect at Itential and Samir Parikh, Head of Product at Intentionet for a live webinar on achieving closed-loop policy configuration management. Mike and Samir will showcase how Itential automates the entire process, leveraging Intentionet’s Itential Pre-Built contributions to perform policy validation (pre- and post-change) with Batfish Enterprise.
With Batfish Enterprise and Itential, network operators can take comfort in knowing their configuration will meet the configured network policy, all while enjoying the full benefits of automation.
