For Network Devices Auditing

Before you start creating a monitoring plan to audit your network devices, plan for the account that will be used for data collection – it should meet the requirements listed below. Then you will provide this account in the monitoring plan wizard.

For... Requirement
  • Cisco ASA
  • Cisco IOS
  • Fortinet
  • Juniper
  • Palo Alto
  • SonicWall
  • HPE

You can use any account (not necessarily the credentials used to connect to the device itself), as long as these credentials do not affect Netwrix Auditor or monitored IT infrastructure.

Provide this account in the monitoring plan wizard.

  • Cisco Meraki

Create a special cloud account with read-only permissions and disabled multi-factor authentication. See Configure Cisco Meraki Dashboard Account for more information.

NOTE: Accounts with multi-factor authentication are not supported.
