NetGuard Audit Compliance Manager

Automate the audit and analysis of all parameters in physical and virtual networks

NetGuard ACM is part of the Nokia portfolio of Cybersecurity Orchestration applications that help service providers manage, maintain, assure and secure networks, as well as services.

How does Nokia NetGuard Audit Compliance Manager (ACM) work?

Nokia NetGuard Audit Compliance Manager (ACM) automates the audit and analysis of all parameters in physical and virtual networks. NetGuard ACM extracts real-time parameter settings from physical and virtual network functions and performs data integrity analysis by comparing the results to industry gold standards.

To help prevent service degradations and process inefficiencies, NetGuard ACM also identifies mismatches.

Why is Audit Compliance Manager important?

It’s important because next-generation programmable networks increase operational challenges. The flexibility delivered by Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) creates a dynamic environment in which service parameters and settings are frequently changed by both humans and autonomous processes. Combined with Ethernet and IP protocols used by LTE, Video, IMS and Cloud technologies, today’s networks support millions of configuration parameters. Consequently, maintaining and assuring data integrity analysis is vital.

To assure this integrity, NetGuard ACM simplifies and accelerates fine-tuning of network settings and parameters to ensure successful new service activations by delivering business process automation. It can also play a role in enhanced service assurance methodologies, improving the customer experience by automating and accelerating parameter and configuration checking.
