CiscoWorks Network Compliance Manager (NCM) tracks and regulates configuration and software changes throughout a multivendor network infrastructure. It provides superior visibility into network changes and can track compliance with a broad variety of regulatory, IT, corporate governance, and technology requirements. NCM helps IT staff identify and correct trends that could lead to problems such as network instability and service interruption.
Allow full policy management from the API
A rich set of the API commands is now available to define, provision, edit, and list NCM policies. These APIs can be issued in various combinations to externally create and edit policies for use to help ensure network device compliance.
Network device detection using Simple Network Management Protocol Version 3 (SNMPv3) configuration
Network devices using SNMPv3 for device discovery are now detectable using NCM. Using less secure network device detection methods is avoided when SNMPv3 is used with NCM 1.7, facilitating the use of the most up-to-date SNMP security mechanisms.
Device group user interface display enhancements
The display of device groups has been enhanced to facilitate hierarchical structure viewing of device groups. High performance rendering of user-selected device groups while preserving the "parent - child" relationship of groups and subgroups is reintroduced in NCM 1.7.
Custom notifications to logged-on users
Administrators of the NCM solution can create customized messages that can serve as notification messages to all logged-in users. Administrators of the NCM solution can now see the email address of all logged in user IDs and send emails to selected users. This helps administrators better manage users accessing the NCM application.
HP Network Node Manager (NNMi) integration enhancements
Single sign on between NCM and NNMi, embedded interfacing between NCM and NNMi, and SNMP community string forwarding between NCM and NNMi.
