Introducing Ansible

Do your system administrators take a lot of time manually configuring servers for you developers to launch their applications? What if your systems administrators had a tool to pro-actively manage your IT infrastructure?

Manage configurations and orchestrate complex deployments – all from one system: Ansible – powerful IT automation solution.

An IT automation engine that will give your system administrators and devops the power to easily automate repetitive tasks, quickly deploy critical applications, cloud provisioning, and proactively manage infrastructure, on-premises or in the cloud.

With Ansible, no agents or additional custom security infrastructure is required. It simply works by connecting to your nodes and pushing out small programs, called “Ansible Modules” to them over SSH, and removes them when finished.

Enforcement:


System Tracking

Gives administrators the necessary tools to audit and verify that their machines are in compliance; how a machine has changed over time, or compare machines in your cluster to see how they are different.

Manage and Track Your Entire Inventory

PacketFence policies are created to monitor abnormal network activities; computer virus, worms, spyware, etc. Once detected, an alert is fired, and suppression mechanisms containing actions to be taken for each violation, are initiated.

Visibility into History and Actions

Allows delegating authority to different users or teams, locking down access for particular projects and resources.

Authentication and Registration:


Dashboard

A heads-up NOC-style display for everything going on in your Ansible environment.

Real-time Job Status Updates

Real time streaming of tasks as they complete, progress bars showing current status as hosts are contacted. Watch as jobs change between Queued, Running, and Completed states.

Remote Command Execution

Run simple tasks on any host or group of hosts in your inventory. Add users or groups, reset passwords, restart a malfunctioning service or patch a critical security issue, quickly.

Comprehensive Rest API and CLI Tool

All features are available via Ansible’s REST API, providing the ideal API for a systems management infrastructure to build against.


We are able to use PacketFence to address your network security concerns, offering effective network modernization while reducing cost. Our network experts and integration specialist are able to demo, test, and deploy PacketFence into your production network within months.

With PacketFence, you can replace your aging and costly Cisco hardware with cheaper modern switches while maintaining the same level of security; improve network speed by decreasing P2P, media streaming, and gaming activities on your network; provide a unified solution for the wired and wireless networks.
