Backup, recovery and restoring any network device configuration is critical for an organization to ensure business continuity.  Finding a comprehensive automated back up and recovery solution is limited. BackBox offers organizations a soluton that gives assurance that all network device configurations are regularly and automatically backed up and verified to ensure that all mission critical applications perform as expected.  One of the benefits of having every devise  configuration backed up is that in the event of disaster, recovery time is significantly reduced.

Many organisations are currently using Syslog-based open source solutions that may provide just simple scheduled backups, but this does not offer the many features of the BackBox solution, including a dashboard interface for quick visibility of device status.  

BackBox offers the following additional features compared to Syslog based solutions:
