Asset Management + Network Map
Inventory and asset management has been a long-time feature of BackBox. Since BackBox is connecting to the devices regularly and pulling the necessary information, BackBox is able to provide a dynamic list of devices associated with the network that is automatically populated and updated with each backup performed.
In V.6, BackBox takes this advantage one step forward. While connected to the devices, BackBox grabs network information like routing and IP’s, and draws a network map according to it. This map gives users real-time, full visibility of the network, and routes, without the need to use manual drawings or specific limited scanning.
From this map the user can track a route that is taken from one point of the network the second point, see backup statuses of devices, and can even open a terminal window to the devices appearing in the map.
