At Gluware, we’re not just about innovation. We’re focused on providing our customers with solutions that tackle some of the most difficult networking issues in the industry. Major enterprises come to Gluware because they’re looking for ways to make their complex, multi-vendor, brownfield networks more agile and secure. Our approach to network automation goes well beyond providing simple scripts. Instead of asking network engineers to adapt their enterprise networks to fit a pre-written playbook, Gluware Control ingests network configurations, models it’s features, and automates configuration changes and updates. We then monitor for configuration drifts over time and then address remediation.
