Osirium's Privileged User Management is a great fit for a busy team managing a Cisco Infrastructure. In particular Osirium has range of pre-built tasks that allow non-privileged team members to make common changes associated with staff and office moves.
Osirium provides Enterprise Class Password Lifecycle Management across the range of Cisco operating systems and devices. It provides SSO and Task functionality. SSO is used to get the right users to the right devices using the right account of role. The Task Automation is used for quick, consistent, error-free results without the need to create accounts or grant privileges. Tasks can be integrated with ticketing systems and customised to limit access to particular ports.
Most infrastructures use 'best of breed' components so real networks are unlikely to be a pure Cisco play. Osirium supports a wide range of vendors and allows a seamless blend of SSO and Tasks across the infrastructure, servers, workstations and the hybrid cloud.
Osirium for a Cisco Infrastructure features…See The Features
Cisco IOS, IOS-XE and IOS-XR, Cisco NX-OS for SSH, Telnet, HTTP and HTTPS protocols.
Here's a taste of Tasks that currently ship with our Cisco Templates. All these tasks can be customised and combined to build tasks that match your business logic and operational needs:
With Osirium you can configure port ranges that are allowable inputs to tasks. This allows for task delegation with no risk of delegees interfering with critical configurations. Furthermore Osirium takes a backup before each change so that there's a rollback from any mistake.
Because the infrastructure can have hundreds of network switches, tens of routers and all the associated firewalls and content protection its very convienient to use the same account credentials across all similar devices. The trouble is, that as time goes on more and more people get to know the passwords. At some point you can't be sure how far this process has gone. With Osirium you can get this all under control, and have all the passwords on all the devices refreshed on schedule.
Osirium's profile scheme means that you can grant someone access to the infrastucture, record their sessions and disable access without affecting other users and groups - great for 3rd Party and Vendor support sessions.
