  • A10 Networks

“The release of these additional device plugins brings our supported vendor list to 53 vendors, making Restorepoint the most comprehensive platform for automating complex configuration management and compliance tasks” said Michael Bell, Restorepoint’s Director of Sales Operations. “Our device plugins are one of the unique aspects of the Restorepoint platform,  which sets us apart from other systems. When customers ask us to support a new device type, they can rely on the fact that we’re not simply providing them with a platform to run backup scripts, but have fully tested the recovery operations, making recovery a simple 1-step process, as well as collecting information from the devices that helps customers track and simplify management of their network assets.”

Cisco ACS v5 Now Supported

Restorepoint now supports Cisco Secure Access Control Server (ACS) version 5, deployed either on the hardware appliance (CSACS-1121 series or similar) or ACS virtual appliance.

Restorepoint backs up and restore the database (both ACS and ADE OS), the database password file, certificate store and, if required, the ADE OS configuration.

The previous ACS version 4 is also supported, via a separate plugin.

Please contact the Restorepoint Support Team for more information.

FortiGate Plugin Update

The Restorepoint FortiGate plugin has been updated to support SCP for backup and restoration. Wherever possible, for security reasons SCP should be used to backup FortiGate devices; SCP also avoids TFTP back-connections for file transfers. Note that SCP may need to be enabled in the FortiGate UI or CLI.

The SCP restoration method differs slightly depending on the FortiOS version, but Restorepoint will use the appropriate method for each firmware version.
Restorepoint supports FortiOS 3, 4 and 5.
Please contact the Restorepoint Support Team for more information.

Updated Cisco ASA Plugin Allows Zero-Downtime Restore

The Cisco ASA plugin now gives you the option to restore a configuration directly to the running configuration. This removes the need for reloading the device and therefore keeps downtime to a minimum.

The previous behaviour (restoring to the startup configuration) is still available.

Please contact the Restorepoint Support Team for more information.
